Dave, the RYO stuff is one of the best investments I've ever made thank you for that. I rolled back into town from a road trip to Texas a couple of days ago and it was snowing like crazy up here. End of May and we're still getting snow.... Gotta love it. Those quick smokes have been a real life saver for sure and with a touch of moisture added they are great smokes in my pipes as well. I've been meaning to try Redwood for quite some time but always put it off. After losing McC I really don't want to risk missing a blend I might love. I figured from the description that 8oz to put away was a safe bet.

Watch out for that Redwood. As I recall it’s fairly potent stuff.

The Redwood is quite tasty! I could see it being a much bigger seller if it were offered as a flake. I may have to press some and see how it does.

I seem to remember Redwood being sold in bulk as a kind of crumble cake.

Well, anyway, if you like Redwood and want to try something sort of close...think about Night Train. A classic...old school. Strong-ish.

Jim, you got you some fine smokin' right there. Don't know anything about the Redwood stuff though. Think I have a tin of this knocking around somewhere that I have yet to open-

NT is one of my staples. Wunnerful stuff!

Rande, the Redwood is absolutely worth digging out to try. Dare I say it but it's the closest best substitute I've found so far for my beloved and defunct blackwood flake. Granted it doesn't have quite the strength or twang but this is some of the best chit I've smoked in quite some time. I'll have to check out the Night Train it sounds right up my alley.

Hey Jim

I'll send you a chunk of NT to check out.
