Default "beaters" or "yard-gars"

What all do you guys smoke whilst working outside?
With winter having arrived and most of the East Coast being slammed (or about to be) with a Northeaster, what's a good snow-blowing cigar?
In the summer, I might go with something like a Punch Champion (about $5), but in the winter, you're taking the chance of it getting wet from snow. So even a $5 cigar might be a waste of money.
So what's really cheap, and a decent smoke?

Since snow is not a concern for me and hence no fear of getting them wet, I have evolved to smoking whatever I see in the humi that calls me.

I know some see it as a waste to smoke a good cigar while working around the house/yard. I see it as a waste NOT to smoke a good cigar if one is going to smoke at all.

I'll smoke cheaper mixed filler "sandwitch" style cigars or seconds... If I am doing "hard labor."

Flor de Olivas are decent inexpensive smokes. Ususally around $1-$2 per stick.

for CCs you might wanna try a Los Statos, or a Piedra

For NCs, there's a stickied Cheap Smoke Thread with all kinds of options. I usually don't smoke while doing yard work, but on the golf course I'll go with a cheaper smoke. There's plenty of tasty, cheap smokes, like the FdO mentioned above, so you don't necessarily have to sacrifice flavor.

L&R Edicion Limitadas. (It's supposed to be a Montecristo 'C' knockoff but, never having had one, I know nothing.) $30 something for a block of 20. They need some rest as they go through those fast enough that they're pretty young when you get them. But drop a bunch in a box for a month and you're good to go. I never regret picking one up.

Tampa Sweethearts #500 are pretty good, for about $2 a cigar.

I agree...I like to sit and enjoy my smoke. I've tried lighting one up & going out to work and it just doesn't do it for me.

try a Vegas de Santiago puros torpedo. They are cheap (bundle of 20 $ 66.00
bundle of 50 $ 128.00) and I like 'em a lot. www.vegassantiago.com

yah ive tried smoking a cheap cigar while mowing the lawn or something, but regardless of when or where you smoke a bad cigar..its still a bad cigar..and just makes mowing the lawn that much less enjoyable LOL.
i only smoke when i have time to and something i can enjoy! Not tring to be a snob just hard to smoke and work at the same time unless its a very tiny rg. Like a tatuaje petite or something

Partagas PC Especiales. Cheap as a yard gar, tasty as a premium and enough bite to remind you you're smoking a cigar while using the power tools.

Agreed, and mowing the lawn or shoveling snow sucks... doing it with a cigar makes it better... Why wouldn't you smoke???

I'll smoke one while working and then relax with another after.... I think it's a little silly that folks need basically smoke in an isolation tank for fear that they might not enjoy a cigar to it's full potential...
