    My neighbor is into it. Apple, pear and muscadine wines. Pretty good too.

    My grandmother use to make muscadine wine, there is two or three people around town that make it. It sure is good! I don't know anything about it, but sounds like it would make for a good fourm.

    Why make wine when you can get a great bottle of Boone's Farm for $3.99, vintage Sept '07? [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Very good question, Scotty.

    Many of our "Off Topic" forums have been created because of the interest that the participating SMF members have generated. Certainly beer has a place in smoking as does gardening.

    If you can generate some interest in the subject and enough members are wiling to keep it alive then I am sure Jeff will create the winemaking forum.

    That's one thing about "The Boss". He wants us to have a good time here as well as enjoy bringing the smoking art to new levels. So, if a member is into smoking and winemaking that member can enjoy the whole package and spend his time here and not divided between several forums.

    So, in the words sung by Donny and Marie Osmond, "I'm leaving it all up to you!" as well as the other members of the SMF Family. Generate some interest and we'll carry the idea to Jeff. Of course I know he will be aware and watching.

    Cheers, Chap!

    My how the times have changed, Geoff!

    When I was in college I was buying Boone's Farm for 99 cents! And occasionally for 89 cents on sale.

    But that's not too bad. You figure it went up only a buck about every 12 years.

    Been a long time since I had any and I think the time span will continue to grow!

    I make wine, it involves what ever juice I want to use (sand hill plum is my favorite)...a glass gallon jug, sugar, yeast and a large balloon.
    Talk about some powerful stuff.[​IMG]

    I rememeber it at 89 cents and collecting returnable soda bottles pay for it and to get it. Had to buy two bottles - one for us and one for the railroad track bumb that bought it for us! [​IMG]

    Actually you are correct. The proper thing to do would be to remove all forums not directly related to smoking food.

    I believe that the beer forum should be the first to go. [​IMG]

    Well, to be honest with ya, i agree...........this place is so flooded with extra's that it's hard to figure out what to post where...
    I navigate just fine for i have been here awhile, but i feel sorry for the noob's, it must be quite confusing!![​IMG]
    This forum was started out as a meat smoking forum and a great place to learn just that!! Now it's a soup, joke,gardening, let's see who can rack up the most green dots and be king of the hill forum!![​IMG]
    I know, i can leave anytime i want but i DON"T want to, i have started great relationships with some great people here and would never leave as long as their still here.
    I still enjoy giving advice to noob's looking for direction, and enjoying good conversation with good friend's!!
    My rant is over, alot of member's feel the same as i do but will not speak up so as not to ruffle feathers and i don't blame them.
    I will now sit back and take my razzing as i'm sure i deserve it but when asked of my opinion, i will surely give it!!
    BTW.............Did i say happy holiday's to all!![​IMG]
