I’m torn between giving them than E for effort, realizing that we’re plug crazy, and giving it a whirl - and just shaking my head at the futility of making a plug that is completely lame, lacking everything we love in plugs, just to sell mediocre tobacco - I mean, they already have that market cornered.As I finish up a 7/8” x 2” bowl of Trailhead this comment came to mind. I’ll try Vertical Limit tomorrow, hoping for a little more backbone there.
I don't get plugs. What am I missing? Flakes you smoke in flake form, folding and stuffing, and they burn slow and cool. I'd smoke everything as a flake if available (plus all my pipes are flakepipes). But plugs? You just have to chop them up in whatever little pieces you prefer. You can't carve of a hunk and smoke it that way, so it ends up being like a rubbed out flake, or cube cut, or whatever.
I guess I answered my own question, maybe? People like them because they can prepare them how they want, and change to suit the mood?
