So you put the tobacco in the oil bowl and just heat that over the fire in place of oil? Never thought of that sounds interesting. I've recently recieved many samples and one tobacco stood out in my mind. C&D berry good. I can sit and smell the jar I have of it for days.
A second thought would be just simple Dunhill's early morning pipe, straight from the tin to me it smells very earthy and leathery. Might be good heated over a burner?
