Re: Pipes and Pipe Tobacco
IMHO. When I was a pipe somker I liked a pipe with along stem because the long stem permits the smoke to cool down between the bowl and the mouth. Also, I found that the way I packed the bowl had a lot do do with the ease of draw and the capablity of the tobacco to stay lit. I also found that there was a difference in terms of how to pack the bowl depending on the cut (length) of the tobacco itself. In the long run, I gave it up because it was too complicated and too frustrating to remember all the nuances relative to tobacco type and all that sort of stuff. Also, I save a ton of money when I quit.
Good night Chesty, wherever you are......
