    ATTENTION MODS: PLEASE MAKE SURE THIS IS OKAY OR PLEASE DELETE IT IF IT IS NOT OKAY I've had an issue with one of my CC Vendors. They want me to have my Bank reverse a charge to them because they are not getting paid by the middleman. SO.... I'm going to use a Vendor that I haven't...

    If and when you guys come across a particular cigar... In my case a liga privada no. 9, or any other ~ $10+ premium... How do you re purchase them? By singles, 5ers, boxes, or just buy whatever the b&m has left? I'm just curious because I found my local shop has LP9s and I have been dying to...

    After much scientific research I have perfected the only proper method to pack a pipe. 1) use 2.4 grams tobacco per 10cm chamber diameter. 2) Pack bottom half of bowl with your forefinger at 15.8 psi 3) Pack top half with forefinger at 26.9 psi. Or I just dip my pipe in the pouch, push tobacco...

    Y'all, Due to my recent discoveries of broken seals on some tins, I had to come up with a simple method to test all my tins for proper vacuums seals. I have found this to be a pretty-much foolproof method to check the seals on all your tins, whether round or square. Hold each tin upside down...

    It's officially taken me just shy of two years to figure out flakes, and I still have plenty to learn. Flakes are by far my favorite form of tobacco because you can control so many aspects of the experience. From folding-n-stuffing, to fully rubbing out, to the "screw-in" method (or, in my case...

    Not exactly rocket science, but this is how I do it. The ingredients: 1/2 Kilo Dark Flake 2 Ball "Collection Elite" Wide Mouth Pint Jars 1 Sharp Thin-bladed Knife (any old fashioned pocket knife or paring knife will do) I'll let the pictures do the 'splaining. My purpose in posting this was...

    I'm not sure if this belongs in the Cigar Discussion or Accessories (matches?) thread. Mods, if it is the wrong place, I apologize. Please feel free to move it. Disclaimer aside, I've been watching this video on loop for a little while now, and have been lighting my cigars this way whenever the...

    I have just tried this method. I dont think i will ever do anything else. I always had so much trouble with tongue bite and keeping the pipe lit in the past. It is very good now. I recommend everyone to try this out. YouTube - Frank Method 2 of 3 YouTube - The Frank Method 3 of 3

    This is for those of you, who like mild to medium cigars, with an easy draw and a mosiac two toned wrapper. I have done this to a couple of dozen cigars and have been really happy with the result. First you buy a churchill sized tubo cigar of any decent brand. Now you...
  10. Coffee Discussion
    Hi all, I'm new to good coffee (home roasted, brewed in a french press). And would like to expand my experience a little. I was wondering what other people's preferred brewing method is if not using a french press, and if using a french press is your preferred method of brewing, what is your...

    Ok this is what I do, I use my gigantic Perdomo Thundra lighter (triple flame) and toast the cigar for about 10 seconds in a circular pattern then blow on the end of the cigar and repeat the 10 second circular pattern until I see no black spots of unlit tobacco then take my first draw. Anything...

    I couldn't find the thread on chiropractors that was going on last week. Here's a treatment called "Graston Technique" that is amazing for soft tissue damage. Basically, the scar tissue pulled off the damaged area by an istrument that looks like a dull butter knife. The are become black and...

    I've recently realized that my method for lighting cigars has completely changed. I'm not sure when it happened; I used to only use matches; but now, I use a method that I don't think I've seen or read anywhere. I use a flame thrower lighter, and at first gently toast the foot until it is...

    A few weeks ago I posted about getting Cbid to change their shipping method. When I bought a single 5pk or something, they would ship USPS and I would get it on Thursday. Anything more and they would ship UPS and I wouldn't get it until Monday.I was concerned about my Cigars sitting in a hot...

    Just wondering what the best shipping method is for sending a package to Iraq? I would assume priority but you know what happens when you start to assume...:D Plus if I use priority how long will it take versus other shipping methods? Thanks for any help brothers!

    I am unable to taste pipe smoke as it comes into my mouth, and can only taste it when blowing it out my nose, or after my mouth is clear and I "funnel" it through my mouth passage. how do you taste pipe smoke? can you taste it immediately?

    Really, even though I do not have an accent, nor any youtube videos -isn't this whole "German / Frank" method really revisionist Baby / Mother / Father? To summarize the Frank: 1. Loosely pack pipe full 2. Make a cone of tobacco and tamp it in on top of #1 To summarize the BMFL 1...

    I read about this in Pipe mag and it has been working great for me. I take my tobacco and roll it into a ball, in the palm of my hand, that is just larger than the inside of my pipe's bowl and stuff it into the pipe, but the kicker is I leave an air pocket in the bottom of the bowl (so I am...
