NOT ALL BARBEQUE IS CREATED EQUAL

LOW & SLOW VS FAST & FURIOUS

Why be basic with an ordinary gas grill? Anyone can slap a burger on the grill for a weekend cookout. But, it takes time, commitment and skills to be the real deal - aka - barbeque master.

Smokin’ great meat can take up to 18+ hours. Unlike grilling, smoking barbeque uses the gas that comes off the burning wood to deliver unparalleled flavor and variety. It’s a slow process (patience, my friend) but one that rewards and is sure to keep your people coming back for more. Let’s be honest, no one wants to settle for an average hamburger… And come on, do you really want to disappoint the neighborhood?

REVIEWS

“Other companies sell FAKE smoking chips where they soak the wood in whiskey. Midwest Barrel Company is the real deal. Their barrels come straight from the distillery. They don’t add anything to the wood and even cut them up onsite. The flavor difference is incredible.”

“WOW! There was no doubt it was from tequila barrels...I almost got a buzz when I opened the package! AWESOME! Thank you! And since I was giving it as a gift, the packaging was perfect!”

“This is exactly what I was looking for! When I opened the envelope, the sweet aroma of a rackhouse full of 20,000 barrels aging precious bourbon hit my nose. This is the real deal. And the shipping was fast!”
