Wine Barrel Smoker Project : Updated 14 Apr 11

Material:

My goal:




My friend and neighbor Oreste cleaning out the barrel with water and rocks inside the barrel.He said this is the way he does it in Italy.

The barrel is originally from Jerez, Spain. It used to have Brandy in it from the Spanish Bodega (winery) Bobadilla & Co. It was shipped to Amsterdam, The Netherlands. You can see the family crest that was stamped into the wood.

This is a brandy label from the company Bobadilla & Co. The family crest is top middle.



The barrel was in the basement of a friends family's farm. His father used to make Apple wine in it. It was 3/4 full when we opened it. I guess it had been sitting for at least 8 yrs. Lot's of gunk when we drained it.

More to follow as the build progresses.

Smokemaster, you always have the coolest projects. You sure can't call that one a UDS, I'll be anxious to see your build.

Steady Hand






Test Fit


Looks real good. I'll use a pressure washer again on the inside, then varnish the barrel and paint the metal.
