wearthissplittingwood

In this fancy world of iPhones, Internet security cameras and Nest Thermostats, throwing another log on the fire isn’t exactly something that’s required… but splitting wood is still something you should be capable of doing. Regardless of whether or not you need the wood for survival purposes, to supplement a gas burner or just to show off technique for a lady, swinging an axe from above your had to fell a tree or split some wood is a fantastic, whole body exercise that just so happens to make you look like a badass in the process. Here’s everything you need to master the nature around you without succumbing to frostbite, heatstroke or both, in the process.

  • Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

    Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
