    Granger vs. Granger?

    I’d sat expecting a melt-in-your-mouth-medium-rare-ribeye. But in ritzy, downtown Los Angelos at three times market price—one fancy dry-aged steak went back to the kitchen. I wasn’t impressed by that steak—nor was the LA restaurant manager impressed by me.—Nor the cook. I mean, “Chef” I told...

    New Burley London Blend vs Original

    As I write I am halfway through a cob of 2021 Burley London Blend. Sorry Shermnatman, no honey 🍯 required. Opening the tin I am put off by what reminds me of Coco-Puffs—(artificially flavored) children’s breakfast cereal. No, this is NOT the tin-note of Burley London. My opinion is empirical...

    New Peterson vs 50’s Dunhill

    Surprised at the diminutive size of the 1956 Dunhill Group 4 I’d recently obtained — I decided to purchase a similar sized pipe for a comparison. Attempting to match the ‘56 Dunhill’s dimensions—the choice came down to a Rattray’s Old Gowrie 7 or a Peterson Cara 15–both in sandblast. I went...

    Bulging Can of Granger - Is This Grangerous?

    Let me pose a serious question for a change. I am cellaring Mucho Granger and obtaining same wherever I can find it... The can in the photo is one of two that I scored in a tobacco shop. It’s old stock and I spotted them stored on the top shelf of the walk-in cigar humidor, as evidenced by the...

    Settle This Cobtroversy - Cob Controversy

    There exists a certain “Cob Controversy” that perhaps our members can chew on. Now I don’t wish to mention anyone by name, but his initials are “Shermnatman” Anyway, Shermnatman...swears by the “honey method” and has opined that either “maple syrup or honey” —must be used to coat the interior...

    Granger Games 🔥A Review of Middleton Sugerbarrel

    The rumored demise of Prince Albert and perhaps Carter Hall has me nostalgic. I own one tub of each as a salute to Middleton. But I also have one full tub of Sugerbarrel which, in true Middleton fashion, is as fresh as the day I removed it’s cellophane and peered inside. So today, I’m enjoying...

    Non-Pipe Roll 👀Pipe Roll

    Does anyone know what this is? Well if you think it’s a cool pipe roll, you’re partially correct! But in truth, it’s nothing more than a traditional Harley Davidson’s Biker’s Wallet—Re-purposed! With the right sized pipe, in this case an old meer lined Dublin Dr Grabow, you can fit all you...

    Granger Games 🔥Mockingjay - A Review of Sutliff 212 Burley Delight

    A little bird told me that bulk Sutliff 212 Burley Delight is the “equivalent” of Burley London Blend. This little songbird came to me in the form of Tobacco Reviews - I simply must stop reading those. For when one cruel reviewer described the 212 as “granger-like” my knees buckled and I swiftly...

    A Double Dose of Americana-Cob Time!

    I’ve captured a double dose of Americana — Savoring granger in a Missouri Meerschaum. I know I dote on this mellow old time blend, but it’s earned its place. The combination has me in a contemplative 🤔 mood. There’s nothing like an cob pipe and an abiding tobacco. I’ve turned this little...
