I'm with you on Don Pepin and the Aroma de Cuba's wonderful stick in my opinion. I also like the Fleur de Antillas, from My Father. I always keep them in my humidor but I also have several Casa Magna's in there too.YYZegger said:Try some cigars from My Father Cigars, Don Pepin Garcia makes some of my favourites. I have never liked AVO myself, find them kind of flat. Cigars are very much like wine, beer, food, etc, personal preference is key I think. One of my favourites is La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor, Garcia makes them for Ashton, they are fantastic, and somewhat similar to the Casa's both you and I enjoy!
Have fun sampling! Like mentioned above, Cigars International does these great sample packs, gives you an opportunity to try a wide variety of cigars at a great price until you find what you really enjoy.
I would ask the local fire department about calls for service, see if they have actual calls for service in your area related to gas vs. charcoal, they may keep those sorts of statistics. I think you are on the right track by going to the board meeting, opening lines of communication always helps. If after you've followed the route of an adult and you get screwed, post the cell number of the person putting the heat on you on this board and we'll text the hell out of them for a few weeks for a little redemption.Class_of_75 said:
Thanks for all the feedback. Before I go to Defcon 3, I'm going to follow the advice of @tfhanson and go to the next meeting and see what I'm really dealing with. It may be a neighbor who has a problem with the smoke (small problem) or an insurance requirement (big problem). I've spent some time this morning reading the Condominium Declarations which take precedence over the Rules and Regulations. Apparently the Board got out over their skis a little here, since I have the exclusive right to the enjoyment of my patio, which can however be abridged to enforce a local law or ordinance. Since the fire department is OK with my Egg, I think that's dispositive, as the lawyers say.
I'd like to get some evidence about the risks of ceramic cookers vs. propane grills. I would think the Mothership would have this kind of information. Does anyone have an email address for someone in customer service who I can check with for this?
