The grapevines I've smoked had a sour taste. In some grape growing areas of Europe the pruned vines are used as fuel in ovens used for baking bread.

Yep JPB-you described it perfectly-sour is the word I was looking for. I thought maybe I had used it wrong. Guess its safe to throw it out.....or put it on EBAY!!

I can remember doing that as a kid. Must be an Okie thing. Never could get a good drag off it, so I never burned my lungs.

I ran out of plum wood smoking a leg of lamb for Easter. I pulled down a bunch of wild grapevines and threw those in the fire. Good scent from the smoke, and the resulting lamb was just made of win.
