    Question Is Grape-Vine Wood Good for Smoking Meat?

    I just cut down a grapevine about 9" wide at the base. I can get a lot of wood from it, if needed.

    Is grapevine wood good for smoking meat and fish?

    If so, fresh or dry/aged?
    Merry Christmas!

    If it is any good it would need to be aged/dried. Green would probably give off a bitter smoke.

    What kind of grape? I've used Sea Grape before.. especially good for jerk barbequing.

    FISH HAID - try the oleander, it works well for smoking food. It'll be a knockout at your next party.

    Careful there, Calusa! I'm sure Fish Haid knows the score, but some of these new yankees moving down might not!

    One of the very best smoking woods is common Turkey Oak, and it's everywhere on the sand ridges. Just take a hatchet and cut the dead bark off down to the red/pinkish inner live portion and smoke away! Nothing better for pork meat!
