For those brothers in the US, what are you planning to smoke this July 4th holiday?

For me there will certainly be some Pinkerton's 5 Brothers in a cob or two (preferably at least 1 hour before lighting up the grill or shooting off fireworks, just to be safe!). Also, a cigar or two for sure.

(by the way, on the history of the company who first produced the venerable American air-cured birdseye filled Burley shag which is 5 Brothers, see here: http://firecured.blogspot.com/2009/12/origins-of-five-brothers-tobacco.html)

Punch Gran Puro Pico Bonito..

A nice medium bodied Honduran puro .. 6x50? 6x52? Big cigar, should last through the cook out stage anyway..
Haven't decided about the after activitys smokes. Probably another cigar, maybe a CAO Brazilia.

It'll be easy to smoke nothing but American pipes
this weekend. My collection is heavy with NAC.
Tobacco is trickier, but I can stick with GLP and C&D.
It might not all be grown here, but at least it's produced here.

Since it's my birthday, I'm sure I'll break-out my birthyear Dunhill Shell 250 (1957) to smoke some Abingdon (she's dedicated to English blends).

Bottom of the bowl was pretty thin when I got her earlier this decade, so I had Mark Tinsky do a water glass job on her...now she'll last as long as I do.

Happy B-day. Enjoy!

By the way, what is a 'water glass job', I have never heard that term before in this context. Any info. (photos?) would be welcome.

Sodium silicate,,mixed with water to form a paste,,mud the bottom of the bowl,,fills in cracks, builds up thin bowl bottoms, forms a seal and resists heat,,,

My grandparents used a thin solution of waterglass to store eggs in before refrigeration,,,seals the pores of the shell,,,just another bit of useless information to store,,,, Very Happy
