    Finally, the long wait is over (4 days and first world problem, I know). Thanks to the folks at site-sponsor SmokingPipes.com , my order of tobacco has arrived. While I order a few regulars, I was particularly excited about this order due to all the new things to try and a new cob. The cob is an Old Dominion. When I found out there was a cob maker, practically in my backyard, I just had to try one out.


    Contents include:
    1- Old Dominion Chesapeake Cob
    2- FM Cellar
    3- FM Bayou
    4- Sutliff Bacchanalia
    5- Sutliff Maple Street
    6- Sutliff Court of St. James
    7- Sutliff bulk Trafalgar
    8- Newminster No.403 Superior Round Slices
    9- And SP.com was giving out samples with certain orders, so I opted for some C&D Pirate Kake (looking forward to finally trying this)

    Nice haul man. Looks like some good stuff on there. Those Old Dominion Cobs are mighty cool looking.

    Good luck. Hate to be the bearer of bad news but I did some research and those OD cobs aren't the best. One guy who was a reg cob smoker had three of them burn out first smoke. I hope yours is a good one.

    My main reason for wanting to try an OD cob - besides the proximity of their maker - is the bamboo stem. I know they use different corn than MM, its some kind of Indian Heritage strain. And, the bowl on the chesapeake is fairly small, fits my pink perfectly. All in all, looking forward to giving it a go.

    I have half a dozen OD cobs, and they're all terrific smokers. I'm a big fan. Enjoy yours--it has a marvelous taste.
