    I have scads of Grapevine and want to try smoking with it. Are you generally leaving the bark on?

    I don't recall seeing mention anywhere about the bark not being good for smoke, but grape vine is a suitable wood...if you think it could provide a bitterness, or otherwise be cause for undesirable smoke flavor, you could scrape it off...but I don't know of any reason to. Haven't used it yet, myself, but have used seasoned plum branches with the bark on...great flavor for pork ribs, btw.

    Here's a good reference:

    Did you end up using the grape vines? If so how'd it turn out?
