Marevas (2/5)

  1. I'm too scared to smoke anything other than the insane number of D4s I have. Literally ready for the apocalypse with those. So tired of em. And now that I see Trinidad appearing officially, and those prices...good lord. Those good days are done. A single Reyes going for $34. Nope. But it's good to see these things coming back. Just got in a box of mag 46s that I ordered before the insanity hit hard. Probably the last Cubans for a long while. So now I have all my Cubans aging nicely, and I'm switching over to non Cubans and gone back to pipe smoking. I'm really enjoying these Rojas bluebonnet torro. And the Monticristo new york edition. I need to try and order off here, but it's difficult: I'm usually at work during that time just starting shift, or I'm asleep. Maybe tonight I'll be awake. FoH has great prices and last i looked good offerings. I don't gift Cubans any longer. Except D4s. I gave an epi 2 to a new friend a couple of weeks ago and he was blown away. Now I know where I can give my less favorite stock. I actually reached for a Coloniales before sitting down now to smoke. Thought twice and put it back. I really should have seen this coming. I just didn't think the party would end.
  2. Well, busy travel nursing for months. Been making purchases all the while. Get home recently and realize that I have my last 2 boxes of Coloniales. Sadness. On the flip side, I'm still able to find BBF, Dip 2 (singles though, buy as many as can find), Connie A, and others on occasion. I should have kept up in the forums rather than wondering why every site has removed Trinidad.
  3. I like eggs, too. But the limited surface area sorta turns me off. They make me think of sou vide for grilling. Anyway, I'm currently using makeshift 50 gallon drum with smoker side box thing. I do some unorthodox things with it. I've been enjoying a friend's gas grill late last year. Makes me think I ought to get one. They're just so quick and clean a bit easier. But imparting flavor and that smokiness is just more difficult. But for a quick grill it seems great. I'd probably use it daily. When I was a teen my 5th step father had a cookout team that would serve at various bass master tourneys and always did a yearly thing at the livestock show and rodeo in Houston. I learned some great tricks while helping the fellows with the igloo full of bloody Mary's. Hmmmm, yeah, better get you a drum grill with a smoker. It's for the best.
  4. He probably shouldn't have roasted the dude's wife. Especially about something so sensitive for a woman as hair loss.
  5. I'm glad that meal bloody Mary fad is over. It was amusing for a few months, and I love a bloody Mary something fierce, but there's just overkill.
  6. I love that movie. Saw it when I was a kid. I second this.
  7. Starts off ok, but then delves into whataboutism with non Italians, then doubles down and includes these same groups as folks that have been cast in the same light. Wtf I get it, but cmon
  8. It's a way to garner tighter control over cigars. The FSB, or whatever that flameproof additive is, is what got me to finally give up rolling my own cigarettes years ago. I was never a good smoker anyway, bad inhaler, always hotboxing.
  9. That's just it: pay these imported rollers non cuban wages. They'd work for whatever non cuban entity hires them, and be provided as a business partnership. Oh well. Hopefully this gets somewhat worked out this year.
  10. Wait. Doesn't cigarette tobacco in the US have crazy additives like that flame proof stuff, and for the past 9 years or so?
  11. My partner has been using them for crafty stuff around the house. And it's about time. I've got my smoking room half filled with them. What I ought to do is break the wooden ones down and use as partitions in my humidors. And I like to give gifts of Cubans to my partners coworkers, so I reuse the boxes. They love it. Real Cubans (and lately a great way to dump a lot of my D4s).
  12. Crazy thought, what if some non cuban business type hired non cuban rollers to travel to Cuba and roll for the factories? Perhaps in exchange for some exclusivity? I'm fairly ignorant of the complete situation there, so be gentle.
  13. It was a side at the gage hotel restaurant out in marathon texas. Squash and chorizo combo thing. Just sort of mixed together, cut up squash and ground choruzo. So darn good. The steak became the new side. If any of yall are familiar with the steak situation at the gage lately, I have it on good authority they're changing suppliers soon, no worries.
  14. 2019 BBF First time smoking one. Loved it until I felt my gut drop and I thought I was hypoglycemic at the same time. A lot of non Cubans seem strong to me nowadays. La mission l'atelier 1955 and 1959, notably.
