4 - Wine-Infused Cedar Grilling Plank Set

Elevate your grill game with this set of wine-infused cedar grilling planks. Soak in water two hours before cooking and fire up the grill to medium heat. Place food on the plank, the plank on the grill and close the lid to infuse your favorite recipes with smoky notes of cedar wood and wine.

5 - Wine Country Craftsman BBQ Chips

After extended use, wine barrels begin to impart less flavor into wine. When this happens, winemakers add oak chips to the barrels. After the aged wine is filtered and bottled, Wine Country Craftsman collects, dries and packages the chips, perfect for grilling and smoking.
