Link doesn't work for me. I've seen wood chips made from old wine barrels for sale in a couple of stores here. Haven't tried them, cause well they're chips

I'm going to check with my winery buddy on the squeezed skins of which he spreads tons of on fields. Maybe dried, the would make some kind of good smell.

They have them in planks also and work ok for chicken and ribs but they don't impart much flavor on larger cuts of meat. They also have planks for salmon which were great. I was tinking of being a distibutor for them but I think it is more of a home owner type product.

My brother used to soak his hickory in Bourbon. Could not really tell when it was all said and done.

Rag, if you have a winery buddy you should inquire about trimmings from the vine. They trim them every year and they are great for smoking with a fragrant almost flowery smelling smoke. They need to soaked and watched as they are kind of light but well worth using.

Take care,
Bryan

I tried that. The trimmings are snooty twisted little sticks that were more pain in the a$$ to fuss with than worth.

Re: Wine soaked smoking chips...

I have found that wood that has been soaked in whiskey, wine, etc work best when cold smoking fish. I work with a fish smoker in Santa Barbara that uses oak barrel pieces that have been used for aging Scottish Whiskey and the flavor is incredible. They also do a few other types of wood and you can really tell the difference in the finished product.
