    Whiskey Charred Wood

    I just used the Bake setting on my regular oven. So after a year has gone by I will say. The charred hickory was by far the best flavor. Ive had numerous compliments on this one. The lighter woods all taste the same and seem to just have a char taste. Not bad but MEH.. you definitely will not taste the peach or apple or orange in any of the wiskeys. On a side note. I placed a Tbs of ground coffee per 6 oz of white spirits then after a month strained/filtered the grounds out for an exquisite coffee shine!!!Finally, a handful of tabascos in a bottle of shine for a month makes an excellent spicy w a kick shine as well. I usually drop in a single red pepper (kinda like the tequila worm) for aesthetics. Enjoy

I used a cold water submersion technique that proved very effective. I placed the specimen in a five gallon bucket. Placed a stick across the inside to prevent specimen from floating to top. Added A cup of borax. Filled bucket to top. Put on lid. 1 month later. Opened bucket (that was a pretty nasty task. Do away from house. It stinks). Poured th...

Every bone recovered completely white. Let dry in sun for another week.
