    I just dragged my tired tail in from a rough day at work. I rounded the corner to my back door and there on the grill sits a nice surprise from the UPS man. 3 boxes for me.

    Got a couple tins of Jacknife Plug, some Burley Flake #3, Opening Night, Meridian, Mississippi Mud, St. James Woods and a pouch of Five Brothers. Cold weather is on tap and I have a stack of fly tying materials on my fly tying bench. It's gonna be a good weekend.

    All these are new to me. Can't wait to try them all.

    Yall have a great weekend!

    Check with Byron Oost on the Five Brothers. I'll have to pull up the link to his website for you when I get on my computer. He'll have the best price on it.

    Beeftip, three different deals. I ordered some stuff from Mr. Oost, did a trade for the Mississippi Mud and got two tins in the old guy/new guy swap.

    Glenn,

    I just had my first bowl of Jack Knife plug last night. Great smoke. It packs a bit of a punch in the vitamin N department. I found the taste to be excellent when sipped slow. Enjoy it and the weekend.

    I smoked two bowls back to back this evening. Very nice. The rave reviews are accurate. I have been looking for a blend along these lines for awhile now. The beautiful thing is it has the strength I was looking for but there is also a good bit of complexity and it is very well balanced.

    The vitamin N is there but it isn't too bad. It isn't as strong as Irish Flake. Maybe more like some of the G&H blends I have been smoking lately. Strong enough that I feel it but not so strong I need to smoke it on a full stomach.

    I'll review it when I have smoked a few more bowls. So far it is a winner.
