I don't think that it's any big deal to prepare Zaghloul, DM or what ever since the extra 5 minutes of prep time is for an hour+ session. Still, some people want the minium hassle and to get smoking as fast a possible and most moassels do that.
In the end we all have different ideas about what consitutes a good smoke. Since even I can accept SB fans (with difficulty I admit) i'd say we all should realize that a big part of a forum is having wild fans/haters of different products. I can't see having a forum where I can't rave about DM/Salloum/Afzal Paan so clearly the H-H or Nakhla fans need to have their say say as well. About the only think I can't imagine is fans of Epic or King Moassel existing as that stuff is so horrid.
Hajo you like Afzal Paan? I LOVE THE STUFF! Did you try the Bombay Paan Masala or the Paan Rasna?
Its nice to see some more people in this thread that enjoy Tangy! I admit it took me a while to get it right but it was well worth it in my opinion.
