How many bowls a day do you smoke?

When I started a few months ago I was smoking a bowl after supper, now I average 6-10 depending on the day and what's going on.
Just wondering where that fits with others?

Re: Lane BCA , Dark Red .. Captain Black Dark and Smokers Pride Black cavendish

Just mixed some dark red with amphora full aroma...I like it!
Get the mild cherry cav flavor, with some tobacco and nic. It all works very well together.

Re: Ideas on getting destroyed lug nut off tire?

It's completely recessed... nothing will fit in it. Tried the torch but the rims have a plastic "chrome" finish (Dodge Journey with 19" rims) so can't get much heat to it. Chiseled everything I could get at off, broke a dozen drill bits trying to drill through the last bit of the taper on the nut. I...

Ideas on getting destroyed lug nut off tire?

Was trying to put the winter tires on the Mrs car, one nut snapped the aluminum cap off, and the remaining bit of steel was already round...good times. 25 years ago my grandpa helped me with the same situation, and we used a cold chisel and it took a while, but it worked. 2 hours tonight with a cold...

Re: Tampers (Common Items)

Spent cartridge case...nice shiny nickel plated 44 mag, or whatever bigger/smaller that suits you and your pipe. Lots would work, could even glue a dowel in something small like a 9mm/40/45. I think I'll try this out for a bit with a 30-30.

Spent though... don't forget that part.

Re: A run down on the MB 7 Seas line

These are the kind of reviews I like...meat and potatoes reviews. When I'm checking out online reviews of different blends at different shops, and have to sift through dozens of these "it reminds me of a time long ago, in a galaxy far far away, like a musty cabin in the woods by a swamp full of heml...

Re: Any experiences with EA Carey?

Well I ordered a Grabow instead (carved Cardinal), don't have any of those yet either, and figure it might be a safer bet. I'll try an EA down the road or if I see one super cheap.
Thanks for all the advice!

I've already caught hell for stealing the Mrs Q-tips and Tupperware for my hobby...she is not going to be pleased when I start taking her pickle jars.

Re: 4noggs aero sampler quick review by a novice

Well...now I have to ask, what happened with 4noggs? I have no affiliation with them, or know any history, I only buy there because they ship USPS to Canada...I have no emotional attachment one way or the other to them. I'm open to any other shops that ship up here if anyone knows any...more options...

Re: 4noggs aero sampler quick review by a novice

Catamount is described as: "Ripe Virginia tobaccos, Black Cavendish, & Toasted Cavendish are combined to create a complex, mild smoking experience. The aroma is an elegant vanilla with a hint of cherry. Toasting the Cavendish locks in the natural sweet tobacco flavor" My take...like a lighter less o...
