*** TRizol LS for Tissue RNA ***

I want to use Trizol LS (BRL) for isolating RNA from tissue samples.  I've
used it successfully in several other RNA isolations from cell culture,
blood, etc.
The tissue protocol calls for using a "tissuemizer" or some other tissue
homogenization machine.  Has anyone used Trizol for tissue RNA isolation
without using a homogenizer machine?  Can you just cut tissue up and
vortex?  I don't have enough tissue to see if that'll work.  Thankyou.
