    Had My Very 1st Bowl!!

    Thanks to @Emperor Zurg I had my 1st bowl!
    Peter Stokkeby's Luxury Bullseye.
    After a lesson on how to "rub out" the flake , I packed the bowl & puffed away!!
    I had to relight about 4 times over approx 45 min, but overall kept it lit.
    I don't know if it was due to the pipe being brand new or if it was the baccy that i wasn't too crazy about. I'll definitely give it another shot as well as try a few others.
    ALL HAIL THE EMPEROR!!

    WooHoo!!

    Sorry if you didn't like the baccy
    You might have to give it a few tries before you warm up to it... you can read about some of my misadventures with pipe tobacco here --> Zurg's Random Tobacco Ramblings

    Also, the tobacco probably isn't going to have as much taste as it could have until your pipe breaks in.
    Then there's the whole gamet of packing and tamping properly - lol!

    45 minutes and 4 relights though... that's pretty darn good for the very first bowl!!

    I figured the brand new pipe might have something to do with it!

    Yeah! I was doing some reading & realize , "there's a little work" involved with this hobby! and that I need a few more tools. Do you use the filters? if so, the tube or the balsa? I know I'll have to experiment myself for preferences, but just curious.

    Yea Me!!LOL

    With cobs the first 8-10 bowls taste a lot like burning cob, and a little like tobacco. As the inside of the bowl chars, more of the tobacco flavors will come through.

    I was originally using the Sav balsa filters - you can stuff one of the triangular, 6mm filters in the stem pretty easily. But then I chucked the whole filter thing in favor of a Forever stem from Walter Briar Works. Then I went and lined the shank with a porcelain tube so it was easier to clean the pipe... now I'm working on a whole 'nuther improvement to the world of cob pipes.

    You actually did a really nice job rubbing that out >

    As others have mentioned- the breakin for a cob can be less than tasty, but it is worth the effort to hunker down and wait it out. A charred cob smokes like a dream!

    Since the cob needs breaking in, I guess I'll have to run out & buy some so so tobacco & hold on to the good stuff for when it's broken in!

    I'm partial to OTC's for the break-in process.

    Nice job. I sounds like your first bowl was way better than mine.

    I don't use filters, but if you want one, you probably own the best. Just take a pipe cleaner and cut it in half. Fold the cleaner in half again and insert the point of the V into the filter chamber. Voila, an instant and almost free filter which will catch a lot of tar and keep the bits of tobacco out of your mouth.
