What’s going on folks? So do you folks have your Thanksgiving smoke in order yet? I’ll probably stop over a friend’s house around noon and sip on a nice beverage while we smoke a cigar. Not sure what I’ll smoke yet, but I’m leaning towards a Diamond Crown. Diamond Crown cigars seem to be my go to smoke for holiday’s.



What will you folks be smoking/paring it with? Hope you enjoys have a safe and healthy Thanksgiving!

I am thinking an Anejo with about 1 year of age on it

Hmmm. I hadn't thought about it. I did pick up some Diamond Crown and Maximus recently, but I also have some Fuentes, Padrons and an LP that I might go for instead once my parents leave. It will make a nice change from the Bradley 2nds and other affordable stuff I've been smoking lately.

Not sure, maybe an undercrown or a MUWAT, haven't tried either one yet and I've got both aging in my coolidor.

Not sure yet, either a Camacho Triple Maduro or Padron 1926

Diamond Crown Maximus Double Corona #1.

I'll be smokin' the fabled Americus Turkanis from Foster Farms....It has that complex Hickory woodsey hints to it...

Either a Liga #9 or Kristoff GC Maduro

Can't really go wrong with either.

Oh yea.....with lots of beer and turkey...I foresee many naps in my future.

Since I just found out that my son is coming for a couple of days while traveling between duty stations and the fact that we have not spent thanksgiving together for the past 5 years I will enjoy a 10 year old Opus X Belicoso.

Best wishes to all.

Knowing my luck it's going to be about 10 degrees here on thanksgiving.

I'm thinking a nice bowl of Carter Hall or Prince Albert in my MM cob.
Link Posted: 11/13/2012 3:04:09 PM EST
Undecided right now, just got a great deal on a couple Carlito God of Fires... I may just have try one of those out!

Camacho Triple Maduro

I have to work that night. So I will probably pair an AF Anejo or Viaje 2011 Holiday Blend with a Coke Zero.
Link Posted: 11/19/2012 12:23:23 PM EST
Ill probably bust a flying pig or feral pig out.

I'll probably just wing it, maybe something from AF or Pete Johnson.
Link Posted: 11/21/2012 11:05:22 AM EST
Probably a fresh Opus double robusto or TAA figurado, maybe San Lotano Oval or Ortega Serie D or Pinolero, cigars are ready to go....
Link Posted: 11/21/2012 11:09:33 AM EST
All these cigars sound great!

Bird one gone....




Bird two dropped....garlic butter in this one....





Cigar #2 is going to have to wait until my wife's aunt leaves....apparently she can smell my cigar through walls and it bothers her....

Añejo 49 in hand right now.

Echo you're too kind, I'd still be smoking if I were you!

Bird 3





And.....a '26 #2



ETA....


The '26 was awesome and now bird #3 is done.




Resting then to the carving board.

Family is all but gone.
Kids are in their PJs.

This last bird is getting quartered a right into vacuum bags for later.
I figured while I had the oil out and bubbling, might as well get good use out of it!

The wife wants a cranberry/orange adult beverage and I have my eye on some Port.
Also looking at a 09 Liberty or a Triple Mad for later since my belly is really full.

Tasty too...

We completely wiped out the first one and then killed half if the second.
The third was boned out and put in vacuum seal bags for later.

I had plans to drop a bunch of curly fries but the oil didn't look like it could take it.

It was still a great day for frying turkeys.

Didn't get to partake last night, but making up for it with an Anejo 49 on a beautiful night tonight. Glad you enjoyed thst Opus Bigshovel.
