I have seen many a mention of adding grape vines to the lump. Are these the cuttings after each season or are these older growth? We have tons of vineyards around here.

    well looks like I'll get out to the vineyard and load up. Does it take much per cook....I know it depends on how strong you want the smoke...but is it a strong wood. :P

    does not need to be from a vineyard, side of the road is fine. i pick the leaves early summer for stuffed grape leaves and use the cuttings for lamb. i just use wild concord grapes, dont overlook the leaves, go buy a vine

    Thanks for the info...lots of roads with grape vines along the side even malls around here..Not enough room left in my yard for a grape vine.

    The chips I used didn't say. The flavor in the food was different than the aroma coming out of the egg. The exhaust not so good and I was concerned. The flavor of the chicken was great and now grape vine chips are in the cabinet.
