Default Grape Vines

So I smoked up some ribs yesterday using oak and grape vines. The oak was the work horse through out the day but the grape vines stole the show in the long run.

Knowing too much could cause a bitter flavor, I added a hand full of vine pieces at three intervals. The vines added a slight tart flavor but did not over power the meat. A flavor I would compare it to a vinegar dip sauce. I believe the flavor complimented the pork rather well and am planning using some vines this weekend on a whole shoulder.

So guys, no pron this time.

Are the vines wild or your own. Where I work I have wild vines covering 30 ft trees.Just wondering if it makes a difference wild or not.scottfish1

We use Grape stumps almost all the time
Never had a bitter taste
The vines are too small to give you enough heat
The stumps are similar to using big tree branches
I find it comparable to Apple
This would be table Grape vines here in So Cal

I had some of Thom's food cooked with Grape Vine. I think we might have won an award or two with it...
Wait! Bigmista wrote a cookbook?
