    Thinking of going for an 8 oz of jack knife plug without ever trying it because of some good reviews. I love Irish flake, but would rather buy in quantity. What do you think? And do you know of a better way to satisfy my if jones?

    If you like irish flake, i think you would almost certainly like GH dark flake unscented. Jack Knife Plug is good, but not as good as Irish Flake imo.

    It might be worth trying a tin of MacBaren's Old Dark Fired. I've smoked a good bit of Irish Flake, and I thought the ODF was very similar. Almost half the price, too.

    I think the 2 are both totally different beasts.
    I love them both and maybe Jackknife better.
    If you don't like it, I know many people here that would trade you for it.

    Go with the Irish Flake. Or better still 3P's!
    Accept no substitutes.
    Quantity for IF simply means multiple tins!
    (-;

    I've tried GP's plugs and while he may be considered an accomplished blender in some circles I don't think he, nor any US blender/manufacturer for that matter, has figured out how to produce a good plug.

    Thanks. I knew I would get some good advice here. I will definitely have to try the suggestions given particularly th gh product. I also enjoy best brown 2. So that might be a better place to start.
