Well, I was bored with my tobacco, so i took one of my cheap, but good smoking grabows and cut a piece of a cigar in it. I had to kind of stuff it in, but it still had very good draw. It smoked surprisingly well, but i didnt like the taste(like eating pepper). When i was done, i noticed the nicest looking white ash covering the bowl. Has anyone ever thought about using cigars to break in a new pipe? I wish i had a nice camera, the ash is incredibly even and good looking.
