So about 3 years ago I made a smoked turkey for Thanksgiving,. It was great, I made a soup with the carcass, but that is another story.
My wife told her entire side of the family that I wanted smoking equipment for Christmas, so I ended up getting like 10 pounds of wood chips for the smoker.. oak.. cherry, apple , I have a few unopened bags... can I use those wood chips for beer flavoring in the second fermenter? . I have not oaked before so:
Do I boil them first to clean them up, or would that loose flavor?
Do I soak them in whiskey?
