Re: Attn: RYO smokers
I disagree, and a shitty paper can make a good brand of tobacco taste harsh. There are also tube strength considerations when injecting. Also I can't stand a completely white tube as is the case with some light tube brands. It's a real pain in the ass when smoking in low light conditions (after sex for example).


LOL, OK I see your point there
Don't get me wrong, I know there's better papers, filters and tobacco out there, but the ones I buy are the best of the choices that are available everywhere
I don't have any experience with the tubes though, I just roll by hand, but I can see how pisspoor tubes can be a hassle.

So THAT'S why I keep lighting the f***in foam! I hate when that happens!


I did it once, now I use my tongue if there is a question as to which end is in my mouth.

I also rolled and smoked the '10 to go' paper once when I was pissed in the dark. Surprisingly, I got halfway through before it fell apart.

That's kind of funny because the guy that got me into smoking White Ox spent 15 years in prison. He used to say it keeps the mosquito's away lol

I like it, has a strong flavor that makes a change from tailor made cigs. Those Port Royal brands are nice too, rum, red wine.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 572354


One of my concerns too, the way I see it there are three options:

1) grow tobacco and learn to make paper or smoke through a pipe
2) stock up as much as I can
3) take it as an opportunity to quit

The way I figure, #1 is ideal but will take precious resources away from growing food so not really an option.
And #2 will eventually lead to #3
I'm thinking the 2/3 option is the best.
Also I'll grow pot.

Not good about those FSC cigs btw

That's what made me think of it, White Ox is what they issue you in prison (in oz) if you are a smoker, and if you're not I'm guessing you'll take it anyway as a bartering option

And yeah, port royal is nice. I buy a pack from time to time when I go to the city and find a tobacconist, another brand with a flavor I like is Havelock.

All in all, I just like a simple smoke that is not too hard to get. It makes the exotic smokes all the nicer on the occasion I can be arsed to get them :)

I use Midnight Special and use whatever tubes are on sale. premier seem to be on sale lately. As for the machine, I use the one with the crank. It cost me 29.95 but it is great, takes a fraction of the time to roll a pack (my time is valuable too) and rolls great cigarettes. I have the cost at 90 cents a pack.

Formerly Golden Virginia, now Amber Leaf which is less expensive but a good smoke all the same- better than packet cigs by a long way.

Re: Attn: RYO smokers
Gambler Light Tobacco - Taste is similar to Marly/Basic Lights IMO

Premier Ultra Light 100 mm Tubes - Ultra Light tubes mellow it just a bit more. 100's is a no-brainer for me. If I'm gonna do the work might as well get a couple extra drags for the effort.

Top-O-Matic Injector.

I Know, I know, but 20 yrs. of Marly Reds took their toll.
I love smokin' but the light/ultra combo is about all my throat will tolerate at this point.

Works out to a little over $10 a carton as I'm sure you already know.

Been at it about 6 mos. - wouldn't have it any other way now.Flexibility of different combos is nice too.

I can roll about 50 in 30 Min.

I buy at the local smoke shop.

I haven't tried the Midnight Spec, but maybe I'll give it a go. I did try El-Rey and they were good, but my guy doesn't have 'em in 100's. :-(

How long 'til the a-hole busy-bodies try to close our little loophole?

Re: Attn: RYO smokers
I have some questions.

What is your favorite tobacco and why?

I smoke various blends- have tried many over the last 4 years and only buy D&R tobacco. I tend to go for stonger blends and my wife smokes Two-Timer Gold. I have found that D&R has the best selection of high quality tobacco. They are more expensive but at the quanities I buy I can still produce smokes for under $1.10 a pack.

What is your favorite tube and why?

I use Supermatic Light tubes for my wife and D&R Ramback Elite -high density tubes for myself- they are essential a light tube but with brown papaer over the filter so they look like regular. Strong tobacco with a light filter can still be stonger than any store brand while taking out more of the tar.

What machine or roller do you use?

I have a Top-O-Matic- it works very good. I had a less expensive machine that worked well (an Excel I think) but it wore out and the linkage broke after a couple of years.

Where do you buy your tobacco online?

[link to www.cigarettetobacco.com]

I shop at the above link but usually call in my order. They have nice sample kits too and as a repeat customer they will send me samll samples if I ask.

I am currently smoking Midnight Special ff (flame away...) with El-Rey tubes made with a supermatic twin tube injector. So far I've tried about 5 different brands and like the midnight special the best so far.

Militant non-smokers please fuck off in advance... hf
