  1. I smoked one about six months ago and it was more bland than I remembered. They may be getting past their prime. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  2. This is true. In my case once the unit "dried out" enough, i basically never had to maintain it because it was a closed system. There could be other reasons why the water pooling is happening.
  3. Heartfelt beads you can choose the % you want. essentially just non-sealed bovedas.
  4. You need to block off the drain hole with duct tape. Then you create a duct tape channel with ridges so that the moisture flows down into a Tupperware filled with beads. The duct tape goes from the back wall into the tupper. You now have a closed system which won't need refilling because it isn't leaking out the back, and the moisture gets put into the beads which then disburse it back out appropriately. Also a fan on the back next to the beads pointing upwards really helps. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  5. I thought #2 was fantastic, leaps better than #1. First third was some slight cedar which turned to pure cream. Second third was sweet, honey and grass, some citrus but it was not orange. Maybe a lemony/lime Final third was less sweet and much more earthy, ending with a bit of spice/cedar. I nubbed it to about half a cm! Whatever that was...I want a box!
  6. Because you can. Not all cigars have good enough construction...it's kind of nice when you get a good one and see how long it goes! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  7. LCDH has a nice lounge with drink service. Selection wasn't huge but the staff was very friendly. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  8. It's easier than you think, just don't overthink it and use a temperature monitor. I thought this article was really informative, been using their style and every one has turned out amazing. https://amazingribs.com/tested-recipes/beef-and-bison-recipes/smoked-brisket-texas-style With all the fat run off you really do need about an uncooked pound per person.

  9. Wow I tasted NO H upman flavors in this one...was way too bitter for the HU's I have had in the past. I was convinced it was a dip 2 but then that bitterness came in which was clearly not dip. Oh well! I still had a lot of fun trying! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  10. I think the idea of the fridge is to acclimate them a bit more slowly. Since the humidity level drops in cold (I think?) It's probably slightly less risky to drop that RH more slowly to avoid cracking.
  11. I've had great draw on a whole '15 box but no complexity at all. Great creamy flavor that did not change at all throughout the whole smoke. For the price these are really great... definitely will look for another box given the value
