Barbecue Chips made of Sherry Barrels
The Cook in Wood sherry BBQ smoking chips are especially suited for fish, lamb, pork and shellfish and unfold their special flavour when heated: on the charcoal grill, gas grill, or wood-burning stove.
Sherry Flavour for Fish, Meat & Vegetables
Sherry is a fortified wine, which is made from white Palomino grapes that grow in Jerez de la Frontera in Spain. This wine is completed with brandy after fermentation and thereby gains by originally 11 - 13 to 15.5% by volume alcohol content. Due to the manufacturing process, sherry develops an aroma characteristic for only this wine, reminiscent of almonds and yeast, sometimes also of hazelnuts and walnuts.
The fruity spicy aroma of sherry is suitable especially for seafood, fish, pork and vegetables, which can be deliciously flavoured on the grill.
Special Aroma Process
Cook in Wood does not only recycle the oak barrels and is thus environmentally friendly, but the taste of the outstanding wines and spirits is not lost but finds a new use. Thanks to a special process by Cook in Wood, the formative culinary characteristics such as taste and flavour are retained over months and years in the smoking wood chunks. Quite the contrast to artificially scented or flavored products, of which the effect evaporates quickly.
Soak the desired amount of aromatic wood chips in water for at least 30 to maximum of 60 minutes and pour the excess water off before filling the chips in a perforated grill or smoking bowl. They are suitable for a gas grill as well as for a charcoal grill. The smoking chips are made of traditional Sherry barrels made of French, American and European oak. The sherry matures in wineries in Spain.
