Hello, Bunny, Oh heavens yes you can smoke wine, beer or any liquid such as soups, dressings, heck you name it, you will be able to smoke it.
There are two ways I smoke wine.
1. After lighting the smoker, place the hose directly into a glass of wine for approximately 15 seconds then remove. It makes for a good show.
2. Half fill a drink mixer with the wine, with the lid held on top with enough of an opening that the hose can be put in, fill with a heavy smoke, maybe five seconds, remove hose, close lid, shake for ten seconds and you have smoked wine.
I can understand being on a tight budget. That is why I recommended the handheld smoker. It's my opinion, that it is the biggest bang for the money. You will be able to smoke things that I can't even consider by using my bigger and much more expensive hot or cold smokers. You will learn to smoke things in a different manner than usual. For instance, when smoking cheese, rather than smoking a block for hours, you will be able to smoke just prior to serving by smoking the cheese after slicing it. That allows the smoke to come into contact with all surfaces. The same with, a steak, rather than smoking just the outer surface, you would smoke the entire steak for a couple minutes prior to service.
With your homemade wine and the smoker, you will be very popular in the neighborhood. Save when and where you can even if it takes a year or two, you will be rewarded.
I'm not trying to sell these things. If you can find another that does the same thing for less, I say buy it. I do believe that all serious smokers will eventually have one in their arsenal if for no other reason than for the innovative and fun things that can be smoked.
