scammer raising a stink with bad smoking wood

Post by papabear73 » Sat Nov 22, 2008 5:07 pm

I was listening to a local radio station earlier this week, when a very interesting story came through. It seems a scam artist was selling bags of decommisioned whisky barrel chunks at a local flea market. A veteran bbquer noticed something fishy about this bargain. A friend of his was contacted and some of the wood taken to be analized by a local biologist. Turns out the wood had been decommisioned alright, but from a sewage treatment facility. The scammer is facing charges. It is not known how much he had sold. This guy was slick but busted by a Que-r Vet who said he wouldn't have ever drank whiskey if it smelled like that.
