    Howdy folks, I've been trying to compile a list of plug tobaccos to try. Any suggestions?
    Jackknife plug is about all I've tried yet, and I'm loving the experience.
    Thanks,
    Shawn

    SG has some plugs that are a must try!
    I didn't get on with Peterson's 3P, but YMMV.
    Also, if you're a C&D fan (even though I am not),
    Briar Fox gets a lot of nice reviews here.

    There are several on the SG and G&H lists, plus 'Revor', 'Warrior', and if you can get some - Mick McQuaid is excellent....I'm smoking some in a churchwarden clay as I type!:th1:

    Peterson's 3P. Changes character quite a bit depending on how you prepare it. Slicing it in to flakes and then leaving them in a jar for a couple of weeks works for me.

    I am looking forward to trying several of the SG Plugs. I have made them my next TAD endeavor.

    I'd highly recoomend the Mick mcQuaid. I bought 1 pouch last fall in the UK, and it's so good I can't bring myself to finish it. I'm just not worthy, so the 1/3 that's left sits in a jar beckoning....3P is also good.

    Anyone tried Pease's Triple Play (I think it's basically Jack Knife with perique)? I was thinking of picking some up on my next big B&M run.

    Not exactly, but for 99% of our discussions, yes.

    Yeah. I think of cake as being shredded or ready-rubbed tobacco pressed back into a brick. Plug to me is like layers of whole leaves pressed into a brick -- the stuff they slice to make whole, intact flakes.

    But then again, it seems to me like Penzance is a flake made from a cake. So there you go, nothing ever quite has to follow the rules exactly in pipe smoking except for: smoke what you like, and you will like what you smoke.
