Beef Plate Ribs Last Night

Been too long since making these, plus wanted to try out the freebie "Bourbon Barrel" wood chunks I recently received...
We did not notice anything special they added over regular oak chunks.  One thing of interest, they are in a foil lined sealed bag.  All other wood chunks I've bought have ventilation holes in the bags.  That ventilation is desirable for reasons I don't recall.  Not sure why these would be different.
3-bone rack of ribs, seasoned SPG from a sample pack from Dizzy Pig...
They were ready after about 5.5 hours at 250...
Had boring salads (no pic) and corn with diced jalapenos...

    Looks good.

    I never was convinced "smoked wood chunks/chips" from bourbon barrels would give you any type of special flavor over regular oak chunk/chips given they are smoked in both cases.  What it does do is add to the story about your protein, and people eat with their eyes and minds.

    I sure did enjoy the smell coming off the cooker @henapple house when he used cut down barrels

    I did too.  I'm just skeptical about there being a difference in taste if you did a blind taste test.  I've used barrel chunks for smoking and have been happy with the results, so no complaints at all.
