Your bunghole is showing......
It sure is and its a tight one!
I hope your St. Bernard has a strong neck.
20 pounds of whiskey will slow him down if that thing ever leaks.
looks like a little wine or whiskey keg........
Where'd it come from? Looks like a decorative item to me, but who knows? Rick
Dimensions? Liquid capacity?
It is a charred oak barrel used for wine making normally.
Neither. But I like the thinking..
Yup, interesting. I knew the barrels used in large-scale wineries were generally close to 60 gallons, or so. (Some wineries covet the barrels previously used to age whiskey). The scale here is hard to judge with confidence, but this guy looks to be a good deal smaller to me. So, good old Google has just shown me that there are specialty barrel makers (Coopers) today who cater to the home winemakers...offering charred oak barrels in a number of small sizes. Interesting, indeed. Rick
AH...but you're trying to get us to guess what it's current function is...into what service has this little keg been pressed...hmm. What could be inside there? I'd still like the dimensions, or at least a photo of it next to something that gives it scale.
Ah, smoke show's beer mug.
Sounds like a Mai Tai to me...just needs a straw and a little parasol where that cork is.
Hint its made from my garden no whiskey or anything like that, but is a mash.
Ding Ding....Takes a gardener to know one.
What do I win????
Pm your address and I will send you some ground smoke pepper! The sauce will take 3 months.
Hey, no fair. I won the last "what is it contest" and I didn't win anything. I tried to trade you some overgrown squash for chipotle and got nowhere
lol, Pm your address!
It's a large saint bernards cask
Hey thanks for the offer! I'm messin' with you though and am just just happy to play "what is it?"
Thanks for posting.
Saw one of those in a local liquor store. It was a "age your own whiskey" kit. You let it age to your taste with a pre charred barrel.
I've got more jalapenos than i can give away right now. If some showed up in the mail that'd probably push my wife over the edge. Thanks though!!
Same here...lol I am letting all mine turn red now. I will dehyrate them and be able to make another couple rds of hot sauce before next growing season.
How did you smoke them? I might have to give that a shot.
