Brisket candles. Mmm.

CL just included 4 Rivers Smokehouse in our dining (and drinking) guide to Christmas weekend. However, this food editor had to share something else from the popular Florida barbecue chain...

...Brisket candles are a thing.

These small-batch, slow-cooked-beef-scented hunks of wax might not be news to hardcore fans of the operation's 'cue (though Tampa Bay's two 4 Rivers locations in Carrollwood and South Tampa are pretty young). But still.

A 4 Rivers brisket candle, among the chain's various stocking-worthy retail options, is a blend of smoked brisket and aged hickory. Available for purchase online, the candles can burn for approximately 17 hours and cost $16.95 each.

Now go impress the barbecue lover on your holiday gift list.
