Desired tree height *plus 8.
(* add 8 inches to this for the base)    Approximate number of both empty beer cans and wires (obvious each can requires 1 wire) An extra dozen cans and wires is included, to fill bare spots.

24" Tree    65 cans needed
28" Tree    82 cans needed
32" Tree    102 cans needed
36" Tree    125 cans needed
40" Tree    150 cans needed
44" Tree    178 cans needed
48" Tree    208 cans needed
52" Tree    241 cans needed
56" Tree    276 cans needed
60" Tree    313 cans needed
64" Tree    354 cans needed
68" Tree    396 cans needed
72" Tree    430 cans needed

Supplies Needed:
Power drill with a 1/8 inch drill bit.
PVC pipe (from Lowes, Home Depot, etc.) - 2 inch diameter, height from table above PLUS 8 inches (for the base)
Ordinary Christmas tree stand that will fit a 2 inch diameter trunk

This table will help you drill. O inches represents one end of the pipe that will become the top of the tree. Whatever height tree, you choose to make, stop drilling at that number of inches minus 8!  You will leave the last 8 inches (as the bottom trunk of the tree) bare and therefore undrilled. Each drilled hole will receive the end of a wire for a can.

Inches from one end of the pipe    Number of holes to drill in the next 4 inches
1"    3 Holes Drilled
4"    4 Holes Drilled
8"    5 Holes Drilled
12"    8 Holes Drilled
16"    10 Holes Drilled
20"    13 Holes Drilled
24"    15 Holes Drilled
28"    18 Holes Drilled
32"    20 Holes Drilled
36"    23 Holes Drilled
40"    25 Holes Drilled
44"    28 Holes Drilled
48"    30 Holes Drilled
52"    33 Holes Drilled
56"    35 Holes Drilled
60"    38 Holes Drilled
64"    40 Holes Drilled
68"    43 Holes Drilled
72"   45 Holes Drilled

Step 2 - Clip the construction flags, coat hangers or heavy gauge wires to the lengths specified in the table below.  Be SURE to keep these wires sorted.  You will assemble them in order, from longest to shortest!

Where to insert the wires - Inches from one end of the pipe    Number of wires to cut to this length    Length of wires for these holes
1"    3 wires    3" Out from Pipe
4"    4 wires    4" Out from Pipe

Bourbon Barrel Recipes on SHOW #19

Sweet Tea and Lemonade with Bourbon Vanilla Extract


2 c No Sugar Added Lemonade 
2 c Sweet Tea made with Bourbon Smoked Sugar
2 1/2 Bourbon Vanilla Extract

Prepare the sweet tea (add in about 1/4 c or more Bourbon Smoked Sugar). Combine all other ingredients in a large pitcher. Rim mason jars with Bourbon Smoked Sugar. Serve over ice.

Bourbon Candied Bacon

8 pieces of thick cut bacon
1/4 cup Bourbon Smoked Sugar
2 Tbsp. Pure Cane Sorghum
1 oz Bourbon
Parchment Paper

 In a small bowl, mix together the Bourbon Smoked Sugar, Pure Cane Sorghum, and Bourbon.

Heat oven to 375. Line a cookie sheet with parchment. Cover each strip of bacon with the Bourbon Sugar and Bourbon covering. Bake for 20-30 minutes, and place the bacon on another sheet of parchment (if you try to pat grease off the bacon with towels, the candy coating will stick to the paper towels).

Spicy Bourbon Smoked Paprika Almonds

2 1/2 TBS olive oil
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 1/2 lbs raw almonds
2 1/2 tsp Bourbon Smoked Paprika
2 TBS Bourbon Smoked Salt
2 TBS chili powder

Add the garlic and oil to a large skillet, and cook the mixture until the garlic is slightly brown. Add all of the spices. Add almonds and cook on medium to medium high for 4-5 minutes. Enjoy!
