The KY fire-cured would give you an entirely different result. You might like it. I don't particularly like fire-cured in a pipe blend. Although Latakia is also cured with fire, the wood used to create the smoke seems to depend on the predominance of Pistacia lentiscus, which is the evergreen from which collected sap is refined for mastic (Tears of Chios).As someone who has never tried Latakia, could I plug in Kentucky fire cured into that equation and have something similar?
