    Greetings from Northern CA

    Finally found a great site and sounds like a great bunch of interesting folks. Been smoking and BBQ'n quite a few years but never to old to learn from the pros. Just remember "Napa" makes auto parts but Lake County produces some of the best wines in CA. In fact I use the oak from older oak wine barrels to smoke and the finished flavor is fantastic. Thanks all for interesting info.

    Hello Gf. Welcome to the club.


      Welcome aboard GF


        Welcome to the Pit!


          Welcome to The Pit GF! We're glad you're here. I think you'll find there are a lot of Zinfandel fans around here. Myself included.


            Welcome to The Pit, Grapefarmer! Do you sell wine barrel oak staves, or chunks of them by chance? I'd like to try some. I have tried whiskey barrel stave pieces with great results. I second Pit Boss' words, I am a zinfandel lover, the more peppery the better.

            Since this is your first post, please check out our homework assignment post for new members, it contains a few how-tos and please-dos.

            Hope to hear & see more from you!
