  1. This was my cook today for the 4th. 3 bone plate beef ribs. Rub is super secret. 50/50 salt and pepper. Smoked (9 hours) at 275 F on oak (I'm from Texas). You know it's done when you can push a toothpick through it and it has the consistency of room temperature butter. Simple but when cooked properly it cant be beat. That bark on there is key. The sun is always shining in the heart of flavor country. Had a boli BF afterwards to help recover from my meat coma
  2. Went through two boxes of HU super Coronas in the late 90s...back when I was broker than Gilligans ship. Still have a single one left. Outstanding. The other is des dieux. Never bought a box but I’ve loved everyone I’ve had. First batch of habanos ive had larger than a minuto. Completely got me hooked.
  3. We opened a can in my brothers kitchen with a group of folks hanging out....the can sprays putrid gas when opened. Smells like if a 10 day dead fish had explosive diarrhea on a pile of vomit. Everyone that tried it puked shortly afterwards, including myself. Stunk up the kitchen for two weeks. The picture in the original post is not what the real thing looks like once opened. I’m sure it’s more tolerable if it’s opened outdoors and washed off with water, but that’s faking the funk. Try it. Be sure to open indoors for maximum effect, and eat directly from the can shortly after opening. I bought another can. Saving for a special occasion.
  4. Drink enough’ll find a place to smoke a cigar. I understand the papa johns at the off 2nd street econo lodge is tip top. Also, I recommend finding hunter s Thompson’s house and taking a swig of wild turkey in front of it. Get a reservation for the angels envy tour.
  5. Indeed...partagas shorts and boli corona jrs
  6. I would recommend a fake cuban cigar. Buy the cheapest esplendido you can find on the internets. It will taste nothing like a cuban cigar. seriously though....cuban tobacco has a certain flavor profile compared to other countries. If you prefer another profile who cares. Smoke what you like.
  7. Mavourneen. May for short. Irish name. Derived from my beloved in Gaelic
  8. 1982 davidoff chateau haut brion I smoked after my daughter was born in 2000 a one bedroom apartment. Couldn’t afford a cigar like that at the time being a 22 yo recent college grad. Cigar was gifted to me in a “trade” with someone off the internet. (I sent him a 98 boli royal corona for a mystery cigar). Knew he had a helluva collection but didn’t expect that. I mentioned in a forum that the 5 pack of 98 boli Coronas I got were great...he said he hadn’t had one yet so I sent him one along with a Fuente. His handle name was poker. If you’re out there poker can’t thank you enough. He sent me the Davi along with a 155th partagas Solomon. Smoked it late morning with a cup of coffee. Still my number one cigar experience. After the birth of my first child, strong realization that if I want good times like this I need to get serious and work my ass off. Also helped feeling that there are great selfless ppl in the world that just love the satisfaction of being nice and overly generous to others they don’t really know. The partagas 155 was excellent too.
  9. Been rotating recently between Townes Van Zandt, Stone Roses, and Albert Hammond Jr....if smoking with friends Willie Dee is played frequently.
  10. At the risk of being a d-bag threadjacker, I highly recommend trying a Cuban davidoff at some point if you get a chance. I’ve been lucky enough to try a few and they have all been outstanding. I can’t believe how good they’ve been despite the decades of age on them. I realize I may have gotten lucky as I’ve read reviews on line that weren’t great. I think the cigars smoked in those reviews weren’t properly kept. Eitherway... Some of the best cigars I’ve smoked but I’ve always been in little to no company and on a special occasion when I smoked them. The four I’ve had came from London. I have two Davi no.1s left. with that being said I’ve always found the noncuban davidoff line to be of excellent quality production and construction, but the tobacco just isn’t there. Money better spent and saved on habanos. JMHO
  11. I used to like the thinner opus x...hard to find, expensive, and that was years ago. With that being said I just strongly prefer habanos. The non- habanos tobacco is often outrageously overpriced for what it is. Like it was said before, overpriced tobacco for a starving American market.
  12. I’m new here...wanted chime in and say agree completely on Carnegie club. Very nice place with good drinks and a very nice smoking environment. Great time talking with ppl, including one fellow who gave me a beautiful Ramon allones and gave us an excellent dinner recommendation. it isn’t cheap, but it’s NYC.
