By the campfire or in the Firehouse, this dog craves and sniffs the air for the smoky aroma of Jack's new blend. We started with the Balkan base of Mangy Dog and added more Perique for extra spiciness. Then we added Cyprian Latakia for more body and aroma. Call it an Oriental or call it an English blend, but call us for some of this exceptionally pleasing blend. You can't get it anywhere else.

Many thanks to Joe Harb (a tobacco blender who is now a reviewer for Pipes and Tobaccos Magazine) for sending me about a dozen of his creations to smoke and review here. There's only one thing better than pipe tobacco and that's FREE pipe tobacco. (-;
I have been told by the blender that Firehouse Dog was re-formulated once they had to switch from Syrian to Cyprian Latakia. At Jack's, the former "Firehouse Dog," is now known as "CAMPFIRE DOG." I just smoked back to back bowls of Campfire Dog (formerly known as Firehouse Dog.) I don't think I'll need another pipe until tomorrow morning. Whew! This one leaves tobacco paste on the palate.
This blend is everything indicated by the above descriptive and then some. Quality leaf from top to bottom and loaded with a variety of flavors. This blend morfs as you work your way down the bowl. Sometimes the Latakia is King Kong. Then the Perique takes over. Then the Turkish.....
I'm sure I'll be reserving the rest of this pouch for quiet evenings while reading a book or watching TV. For this cowboy, a morning smoke it ain't.
If Campfire Dog (formerly Firehouse Dog) was a participant in the AKC Nationals, it'd win Best of Breed.
