The weather...always outside (except on a limited basis in the dead of Winter) and have indulged under all conditions, hot, real hot, cold, real cold. Ordinarily will adjust the accompanying beverage, though today I did go out to the garage, 90 deg F, with a mug of coffee, heavily diluted with milk, so it wasn't too hot, broke out of my usual routine filling the Sav bulldog with FMC.

Off the top of my head, cannot think of any particular blend, in my limited experience, to use or avoid, based solely on the weatherman, at least I can't remember any regrets...??!!??

There have been quite a few recommendations to stick with the bright VA's during the hot, humid weather. Trouble is, I don't really have many bright VAs. But I've been trying what I've got; VA Slices, MM Country Gent, and now the Escudo Navy Deluxe...which I guess is a VAper. They're not bad...but so far they're not doing for me what the burleys do. I guess I just like that nutty burley goodness, particularly in the form of the codger blend OTCs. I've got one more VAper to try; Louisiana Red. Then I think I'll be headed back to codgerville. ;)

Same here. I have at least four unopened tins of VaPers that I got when I knew/understood less than I do now. I may open one or two, if nothing good comes of it, I won't bother with the rest.

I hear ya. Though I do enjoy the occasional light English or traditional American blend in cooler fall weather, burleys are my go-to.

I smoke cobs almost exclusively, and especially in hot humid weather. I find Presbyterian a great summer oriental blend, for a change up from the grassy Virginias. Its a blessing that the blend has changed distribution and is usually in stock at this time.

If I smoke at all in the oppressive heat, it's a Virginia, with ice water in between puffs.
