    ''Real'' Pipe Mud

    I have 2 MM Legends that I was ready to give up on. The shank had burned back to be even with the chamber wall. This left a huge void that collected unburnable dottle and moisture, which lead to a very lousy smoke. From reading these forums, it seemed clear to me that they were excellent candidates for mudding.

    The problem is I don't smoke cigars or know anyone who does. Since I life in GA, what I have is clay. I put the 2 Legends out in the sun to dry and freshen. Several hours later I mixed up some ''Georgia White Dirt'' (kaolin clay) and water to a thick paste. I whittled a paddle out of some kindling to apply it with. I inserted a pipe cleaner thru the shank all the way to serve as a depth gauge. Before removing that pipe cleaner, I formed a U with another to wipe the mud off the chamber walls. Then back out in the sun to "bake." After ''baking'', I smoke a couple of half bowls to ''fire'' the mud. Seems to work just fine. If you poke that stuff lightly with a pocket knife, it is hard as stone. Now I know what to do if I run into the same thing with my Great Danes, Diplomats or Patriots.

    While the Legend will never be my favorite line, sometime you do want something for a quick smoke.

    While cigar ash works the easiest pipe ash works just fine but i hope you did research to make sure that clay your smoking in isn't poison.

    If the clay was harmful, Georgia would be empty.

    The red is WAY better. White is sorta tasteless, with no nic hit.

    I used pipe ash twice for pipe mud and it didn't really work because I needed about pint of it to fix my lousy Peterson with the drill halfway up the bowl. Couldn't get it to stay in there, because it would shrink and pop out, and I don't think cigar ash would have worked either. I might go with some basic plaster of Paris or something -- they use it cobs, right? (There is no mud around here, just loam and sand.)

    While I live in Georgia, my area has plenty of red clay but no none of the white kaolin clay. In all seriousness, any idea if the red works?

    So in other words, stop reading reviews and smoke more tobacco?

    I am gonna try red next time just for the hell of it. Check convenience stores for white. Some black women eat it to control nausea during pregnancy.
