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.
