Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

You only want to compact the top layer of ash, not compress the tobacco underneath.

If the pipe isn't staying lit, you probably either have the tobacco packed too tightly in the pipe, or it is...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

Dry the tobacco more than you think you should
Fill the pipe less than you think you should
Puff often, but not too often, and tamp only when needed.

There is a learning curve that all pipers...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

C&D's Autumn Evening is mapley like the VMC but not as good IMO. Just like you I've been smoking a lot of this recently too.

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

When I buy cobs that have the orange bits like the Legend. I only buy the straight shape. The orange plastic bits aren't bent as much as they are kinked and a lot of junk builds up in that kink,...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

Not so much with a cob. I'd start with the BS, it should give you the most flavor with the least amount of effort. If you're used to cigars thevolume of smoke will be less than what you are used...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

Pipe mud is made with cigar ash and water that is mixed into a paste. It's magic stuff and can be used to raise the heal of a poorly drilled pipe, or fill in a spot that has started to burn out on a...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

Welcome Braeden. A lot of guys like to go with a Latakia blend like Frog Morton or Squadron Leader. Blends like these have a smokey flavor and are easy to smoke without overheating. If you are...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

You can't really tell if the tins are dried out or not from shaking them. Are the foil seals still under vacuum?

The tins will be ok in the Pringles style tins for a couple weeks up to a month...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

Moo your mustache and your pipe look a lot alike. Life imitating art at it's finest.

I've been told I look like a pipe too, only it was just an burned out cob.

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

The pipes look like a pretty standard collection of kaywoodies & Dr. Grabows. The pipes with the clover leaf one them, unscrew the stems from the pipes and check out the stingers. 4 hole stingers...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

The purpose of letting the pipe rest is to allow the moisture absorbed by the wood to dry. If you are smoking one bowl a day, smoking every day isn't going to hurt anything. If you smoke more...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

No. Dunhill's are the most expensive factory pipes you can buy. That also is not a traditional Cavalier. Most are made of wood, the one feature that all cavaliers have that make them unique is...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

Check out Boswell for quality aromatics. As far as the tamper, I just stick it back in my pocket with ash on it.

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

#1. Where do the blends, the ones in the big glass jars in my B&M, come from? Can make note of the blend and find it at other places? Might be a dumb question but pipe tobacos seem a whole lot more...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

Sure you can, don't expect it to taste the exact same as in it's cigar format, but you can clip off a half inch and rub it out before filling the pipe.

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

A lot of people start out with a Missouri Meerschaum Cob. Don't let the look or the price fool you. Even most seasoned pipe smokers have a couple cobs in their rotation. If you are dead set on a...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

You can raise the heal by mudding the bottom of it. Do a search for "Mudding a Hackert". it is a good post by out own Mr. Moo out on the net, and should be reposted here, because it's helpful.

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

Yeah you'll want to puff a little more often than that. Also check out the frank method on youtube it really helped me get my pipe filling nailed down when I started.

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

Troy the tobacco is probably fine. You can try drying the tobacco out by laying out a bowls worth and putting it under a desk lamp, or goose neck lamp. Let it go for 10 minutes, and then check it...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

If you are too aggressively trying to get the last bit of tobacco to burn, you'll burn your tongue before you burn the pipe.

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

There usually will be a little bit of unburnt tobacco int he bottom of the pipe. It's not something to worry about. Moisture can collect in the bottom preventing it from burning up, and the...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

Not on the Kaywoodies, the tenon has threads that screw into the mortise. Some of the stingers on other pipes can be pulled out, but the kaywoodie stingers are part of the bit.

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

Pass a pipe cleaner down through the stem and into the bowl. If it is a straight pipe this should be easily done, if the pipe is bent, it may take some finagling, twisting, turning, and pushing, to...
