    Is there something wrong with me?
    Nope, the Pride is in my regular rotation as well. The Legend, I believe, is also one of the smaller MMs. I would much rather finish a small bowl than go back to a half finished larger bowl.

    The generals are my favorite from the mm line but if I do not have time to smoke them or want to smoke several bowls of several different flavors I use the washington that Mycroft bombed me which I believe is about the same size of the legend. Nothing wrong with small bowls. Which I was first starting I had a basket briar that was super small maybe a 10 min smoke. But I have never had anything except perhaps a cob that has smoked as good as that pipe did.

    Re: Tonights Smoke II - FOR PIPES

    This evening I decided that I really wanted some great flavor from my pipe so I decided to use "Neill Archer Roan's Chamber Geometry" technique. I dug out my Savinelli 320 EX, packed larger pieces on the bottom half and smaller pieces of SG Grousemoor Plug for the top half of this big, fat, wide pipe. After shaving my large and smaller pieces of this tobacco I dried it out for 11/2 hours. I have been unsuccessful in the past in getting a hot pin point flame into the center of this pipe to get a small combustion zone so I instead concentrate a small hot flame to the inner right edge. I think that it would be possible to get that thin hot flame in the center if I were to use a "Torch" lighter, but I don't have one and I would probably end up burning myself in the attempt so I have compromised. My goal this evening was to provide a very small combustion zone, expanded distillation zone with smoldering unburnt tobacco and a normal condensation zone and it yielded such delicious complex flavor patterns. I do not use this proceedure often but when I do-my enjoyment flips into a state of ecstasy. I topped off my 21/2 hour smoke with an ice cold mug of "Guinness Draught" brew and I experienced a great pipe event.

    I tried to finish last night with a bowl of Sutliff Sunrise Smoke. I say "tried" because the stuff was TERRIBLE! I gutted through it for a little while hoping it might improve or grow on me. By the time it went out at half a bowl left I had decided that neither of those things was going to happen, and didn't bother with relighting.

    If anyone would like to try it just let me know. I have almost an entire 1.5oz. tin I can split into samples or send to one brave glutton for punishment. Don't say I didn't warn you though!

    I love grousemoor! That's sounds like an awesome smoke. And I really like the Guinness part.

    I smoke a lot of smaller pipes. I find them really practical for smoking at work (out in the cold and dank shed...); I can be away from my desk for only 20 minutes or so and enjoy all or most of a bowl. Fills out lunch nicely. Also the small size makes clenching easier if I'm working on a vehicle and need my hands. Less weight and that less cantilevered away from my gob. The Alco brand (my very first pipe) was a twist on the Falcon - slightly shorter and lighter. Aimed at younger smokers (which I was at the time).

    Dunhill Deluxe Navy Rolls in a half-bent Barling and then my beloved Alco. Both small pipes. Later tonight will be more of the same in a (small) Ropp Paneled Billiard. Maybe a bit of Black Bogie in a tiny Ropp Yeco Junior I got recently. The comments on small pipes may force the issue and make tonight the night for its first use.

    Yeco Junior. And I've got quite small hands.

    Wow, that is a peewee, Robert.

    Tonight I'm enjoying some University Flake in the DG Regal #65 and some nice warm Tazo "Chai" tea. This tin of UF is old, I didn't write the date on it, but man is it good. I had forgotten just how good this stuff really is. It's worth the effort to reach a little farther back into the cabinet, every once in awhile.

    Just finished watching a rather odd movie, Big Night, with Tony Shalhoub. Claudio Villa sings the opening song -- absolutely amazing singing. Those Italians got a few nice tunes, eh?

    Didn't have enough of my favorite Fvf to do a massive bowl so I went with anni kake.


    The pack I wish I could show you how much tobacco goes in this bowl.
