I'm an incredibly lucky man because right now my finger seems to beat right on the pulse of real country music. This whole scene of upcoming artists that is gonna blow everyone away. I'm not exaggerating when I say that Kentucky and West Virginia have more talented artists playing and recording on their own right now than Nashville's famous Music Row has had in the last decade combined. High on the list of my personal favorite artists is Kentucky singer-songwriter, Lance Rogers.
There is no better reason to stuff your face with crispy bacon, melted cheese and smoked meat over the weekend than the Super Bowl! So grab a big pile of jalapeños, bacon, cheese and your favourite smoked meat and let’s make some fucking Texas Twinkies! I called this batch: “‘BERTA Twinkies”, because I’m from Alberta, Canada and I used Alberta AAA beef brisket, Alberta shot white-tail deer and Alberta Elk. This is a massive recipe (I made 70 stuffed peppers!) so be sure to reduce it accordingly. Now Let’s get to the good stuff..
The Illusione Candela 888 Necessary and Sufficient is a new one for me. After researching it while smoking, I found that this particular cigar while being a Nicaraguan-Puro, is made in Honduras. When looking at this beautiful cigar, the first thing you notice is the smooth construction and green color which comes from the candela wrapper.
Lately I have been venturing past my comfort zone of Dominican and Nicaraguan cigars, and diving into the world of Cuban cigars. I have to admit that I have always been bias so to my surprise, I have really enjoyed the pairings that I’ve been exploring. I invite you to discover some odd and unconventional pairings that were pleasing to my palate.
