Reading Time: 2 minutes One of the most highly-anticipated annual releases from E.P. Carrillo Cigars is the EPC Short Run selection. This year’s 2023 models have been blended and rolled in Honduras rather than in Ernesto’s Dominican factory. Read why and more here.
Is a portable heater safe for smoking cigars in a hunting blind?
A: I know where you’re coming from. I smoke a cigar in my car about once a week. I’ve been lucky that the weather has permitted me to keep the windows open, but the car still smells like smoke for a few days. If you want to move from the old truck to the patio and set up some kind of “shelter,” I doubt body heat would be enough unless you wore enough layers of clothing. I wouldn’t use a portable heater unless you have enough space to prevent something from catching fire. How about getting a good chiminea and sit out on the patio next to it? That’s what a friend of mine does when smokes cigars outside. If you live in a very windy area, and have to have at least some partial shelter, then I suppose if there’s enough ventilation a heater would work.
