Grape Vine For Smoking

My brother in Virginia sent me a big bag of Grape vine trimming from a Vineyard near his house and said they sell them for smoking.

This was the first thing I used when I recieved my new grill and thought it was really nice. Now that I have been wondering through this forum I have about a million things I want to try but thought I would tell everyone about this.

Since recieving the grape vine, the vineyard that was selling them no longer has a link on their site but I live fairly close to Michigan (lots of vineyards) and am going to gather some to use later.

Never tried it myself but I have heard that grape vines are great for smoking.

Tried grape vines on several occasions. Good stuff. Fairly subtle. Nothing overpowering. Think it work best in a tightly regulated type enviroment WSM..BDS..Stumps etc. Wished I had a long vacation.

Wild Grape Vines? I don't know. I would think it would be similar.

When I used the grape vines that had been sent to me, they had a pleasant almost sweet smell when burning and added a mild smoky flavor to my chicken.
