    So what are they? I've seen a lot of folks bemoaning the fact that their favorite smoke isn't available in bulk, but what are your favorite bulk blends? Let's give 'me some hope.

    Me? Why, I'm so glad you asked:

    1. SG Navy Flake
    2. GH Ennerdale (shut up I'm serious)
    3. PS LNF
    4. PS Proper English
    5. RLP-6

    Hopefully I'll be adding a couple of C&D blends to this list very soon.

    I've been looking at Lancer's slices...that's probably going to be in my next order now that I've seen someone list it as a favorite!

    I've really been digging on Hearth and Home's Ambassador Blend. Nightcap and Frog Morton on the Bayou are my favorite blends and this seems to be the everyday smoke version of those. A simple blend with a nice Lat/Perique mix that isn't too rich or complicated, making for a great "workman" blend.

    I have not tried too many bulk blends, but Wilke #400 would be at the top of my list (and not just to be like jpberg :))

    So many of my "preferred" smokes are available in bulk.
    Favorites is difficult to narrow down for me but I'll give it a shot. In order of satisfaction got then:
    Hamborger Veermaster
    Squadron Leader
    Altadis Virginia Slices 507c
    PS Luxury Navy

    Now if only Irish Flake were available in bulk! (-:
