Do you like to drink wine or whiskey? A fun project that you can do to have a unique item created from a whiskey barrel or a wine barrel is a whiskey barrel smoker. You might think that a smoker made from a wooden barrel seems odd, but it can be done.
Finding the barrel to make a whiskey barrel smoker may be the hardest part of the project, and it’s not too difficult. You can find barrels at local distilleries and wineries in your area. Craft brewers also often have a barrel you can purchase to use for your project.
The key to making a whiskey barrel smoker is fire bricks. These are heat resistant and are needed as the heat from burning charcoal is really hot. A few modifications to the barrel is all that is needed to have a functional smoker that will double as an awesome decoration for a patio.
