Hello Fellow Pipesters,

Just wanted to say what a great site this is and I am sure I will be spending tons of time on it exploring my hobby of pipe smoking.
I picked up pipe smoking last year after being kind of burnt out on cigars and not wanting to revert back to cigarette smoking.
I love my briars and many of the tobacco's I have tried over the past year. my favorites being the uncased VA and Va/Per blends.
Hope to be posting more soon and discussing my pipe smoking experiences my brothers.
-Ben

Toledo Bend, huh Skip? Ive actually never been to that neck of the woods but I have been to Caddo Lake many times but dont know how similar the bodies of water are. Either way, looks like a great place to fire up a bowl and watch the sunset. I think I would prefer a frog morton On the Bayou to accompany me on foggy east Texas mornings.

Thanks Greenleaf, Eagle, Doc. I too have an affinity for LGF as it was the first flake I had ever laid match to. I absolutely love the presentation and the way it smokes with such nuanced flavor notes. It it a bit pricey but comes at the perfect moisture level for folding twisting and stuffing.
Do you smoke it rubbed out?

Onabullit, I smoke LGF the way I smoke most flakes: not fully rubbed out, but sort-of crumpled up.

Hands down Rudy's. Salt lick is awesome too but not technically in Austin. Rudy's brisket comes in extra lean, moist, and cutters choice. I always ask for moist with a little char so I can chew on the blackened goodness. Rudy's ships nationwide
Www.rudysbbq.com. Oh and the sauce is boss

Most interesting, indeed...

I have never been to Austin...

BUT, I have had Rudy's many, many times!

My brother lives there. Every year at Christmas time he gets on the plane with like six pounds of bbq from Rudy's. It has kind of become a tradition for our family. At this point, at the airport, it goes something like this:

"Hey Mark, great to see you. Now where's the Rudy's? Don't worry, I'll carry it!"

And yes, their sauce IS the boss, man!

(Doesn't it say "Better Than Sex" on the label, or something like that?)

Awesome. I ate Rudy's about 4x a week when I first moved out here. Easy to kinda get burnt out but nothing fits the bill better during out hot as hell summers after a day on the river. Ask for a jar of the brisket rub they sell there.
