    What is this tropical heat you speak of?

    I had to turn on the heat this am. My wife wore a sweater all day. So, in the absence of tropical heat, I smoked a few bowls of LNF and HOTW and had some Scotch this afternoon (and wore a coat while grilling some hamburgers tonight:)).

    I've been wondering the same thing, as I'm headed there soon.

    However, your choice, would kill me.

    It's supposed to hit the nineties here in VT today. Any Toby will do but it'll be in a Cob.

    Only 112 here today. More of the same as the week goes on.
    I only smoke in the morning and night when it gets this hot.
    Mostly the same va/pers and a few English and aromatics all year round.

    I don't mind the heat/ humidity down here, it's just standing outside letting the skeeters hammer away at me for 40 minutes. I haven't found a smoke strong enough to keep 'em off.

    Ten Russians. Even the June Bugs pinch their noses and fly away.

    Yummy it is. If my wife's reactions are an indicator, it must smell horrible, though.

    Virginias or VaPers. Latakia blends are too heavy for me.

    Dark Flake does it for me until it is extremely hot. Then snuff.

    I smoke the same tobaccos year-round....whatever comes to hand from the tobacco cabinet. It can be anything from a smooth gentle 5100 to black/brown boogie or Irish Flake, with the stray Lakeland tossed in.
