Southern Steel Maximum Tobacco is 100% Made in the USA, even the air-tight, resealable package that this good stuff comes packed in! Indeed, each 1lb pound bag of Southern Steel comes loaded to the brim with fine, premium-grade Virginia with a touch of natural Kentucky Burley to create the perfect balance. So if you’re seeking an affordable brand that features rich, bold, authentic flavors that’ll satisfy any smoker for several hours after the cherry goes out. As official retailers for brand’s parent company, SX Brands, we absolutely recommend give Southern Steel Maximum a try, especially if you enjoy Marlboros. However, our 16oz bag (600 cigarettes worth) sells for roughly fifteen bucks! Now, we’ll let you do the math.
