    Hello everyone. I just received my first pipe and samples from karatekyle and some additional great samples from ProbabteGeek. My question here is what techniques or what steps do you take to ready the tobacco for smoking and then filling the bowl? If there any videos that would accompany...

    When you just smoke a half bowl or so how do you pack it? Seems like the 3-step method would be tough to do for only a half bowl. Thanks.

    Thought I'd start this off as a way of showing appreciation to those that take the time to gift us tobacco. Me? I smoked a great bowl of SG Chocolate Flake today thanks to S_Vivo. Fine weather, birds in the trees & a superb pairing with Coopers Best Extra Stout. Thankyou Scott, I owe you a...

    So, I'm looking at maybe purchasing a Savinelli Trevi. One of the many questions I have is, what difference does the bowl size make in how it smokes? Does it make a difference in the burn, like ring guage on a cigar? or just how much you can put in the bowl?

    Dissertations on packing technique seem to invariably involve filling the bowl to the top, one way or another. Sometimes we see half bowls recommended for breaking in a pipe, with the implication that once that phase is finished half bowls are a thing of the past. However, this morning, facing...

    Good Afternoon Fellow Pipers :) I decided to cruise around after Church today and check out 1 of the more popular local Trout fishing streams. I had a pipe full of Lane 1Q going. This stream is usually about 6 ft in average depth, easy moving current. You can usually cross it in most spots...

    Gent's Again going some reading and research and find that bowl shape is often talked about. The apple, Pot, ect..... My noobish question, how much does the shape/ taper have to do with the flavors you pick out and when pairing a pipe and tobacco, how important is the bowl shape.....Thanks Al

    After reading about 1/1,000,000 of the online advice on starting up do's and don'ts, I finally had my first pipe today. Missouri Meerschaum corn cob with a slight bent, and my choice of tobacco for a first smoke was the old standby, Captain Black (regular). First of all, it went extremely well...

    Hi Everyone, I'm about to put together a small online order and want to add in either a Country Gentleman, Dane / Egg or Patriot. I've got three Legends already but they have relatively small bows (from .6 to .7 wide). Are the bowls on these hardwood-plugged cobs wider? If so which will be...

    Which is the best to you in general, the first bowls of a freshly opened tin, or that last bowls, provided it's not dried out or had coffee spilled in it, or is just a bit of tobacco sitting in a ziploc? Greg Pease has written that in his view, once you open a tin there is a "countdown timer"...

    I enjoyed my first smoke today. A bowl of 4noggins bald headed teacher, courtesy of Jeff. I packed it using the three step method testing the draw after each step. After toasting it I went for the light. Upon lighting I was greeted with a nice smooth, light tobacco taste. then it went out. I had...

    So, I have been happy smoking my Frog Morton and 4noggins' Bald Headed Teacher. These were my favorite English blends, absolutely terrific. Somewhere a few steps lower down, I really loved my Margate. No problem, all are easy to find, all are delicious. I was happy. Then, post after post...

    I packed this bowl last fall just before the first snow of the year. As I can't smoke inside it sat on the shelf all winter. I was a bit scared to try it but decided to give it a go last night. Surprisingly, it was amazing. I had actually forgotten what I had packed and was looking forward...

    ok need some help guys, I have this beautiful Peterson sliver sterling estate prince bowl, and I need some help packing it. I've tried my normal 3 step packing method and it just cloggs the draft hole, gravity fill makes it burn to hot, and flakes really don't work well in a prince shape bowl...

    I bought a freehand corn cob pipe from meerschaum (spelling?). For now I am just a casual pipe smoker. Will this pipe work all right with aromatic tobaccos. I read Boswell's aren't goopy like other brands. Eventually I would like to buy a better quality pipe. Perhaps this summer. Any tips on...

    I am a newbie pipe smoker, only been doing it since December. This is also my first post here. I recently acquired an old Briar for fairly cheap and it arrived to be with a sizable ding in the interior of the bowl. In this ding there is virgin, untreated wood exposed. Is this okay to smoke, or...
