Default Anyone ever tried these oak chips?

Has anyone ever used oak chips that are straight from bourbon barrels? I found these online today, and even tho they are for grilling, I am wondering if they would work. I want to make a bourbon/oak aged porter in the future and I am just checking out some options.


Thanks!

OAK BOURBON BARREL WOOD CHIPS (180 CU IN)

Not that brand in particular, I have used these in beers quite often.



I just soak them in a mason jar full of more jack for two weeks to kill any buggies, then dump them bourbon and all into the secondary. And at 7 bucks for a huge bag, you get a lot of uses of them.
