BUTLERCRAFT – Precision Sensory Modification

ButlerCraft is a breakthrough wood modification process that creates a level of accuracy and consistency that is unobtainable through traditional oak infusion products that are roasted, toasted, baked or electrically radiated.

A combustion-free process that:

  • Produces zero smoke and zero emissions
  • Removes unwanted tannins and resins
  • Crystalizes cellulose and lignin making the wood fibers tighter and in turn creating much slower extraction rates than traditional oak infusion products
  • Penetrates and decomposes tylosis
  • Creates a “moisture resistant” wood, which makes for a controlled, elegant integration and a balanced and structured result
  • Produces complex consistent flavor compounds without smoke taint
  • Allows for temperature control within an accuracy of 0.5° F throughout the process
