    Teetering on the top of this slope...trying to find my footing !

    Hey guys ! Keith here in Mass, some of you may know me from the rolled version of this community ! I was in my local B&M the other day just looking around, and couldnt help but to mozy over to the pipe and tabacco section. All of it is jibberish to me, but some of the pipes were beautiful, and it brought back memories of a friend i grew up with. His dad had a little den off the living room, and the smell when we would walk in from playing outside has stuck with me. The shop has a nice little collection of corn cobs as well. The place was busy so i didnt get to ask any questions. Is a cob pipe a good way to start to see if this is something i will enjoy ? Are the tabaccos they have there good ones to start with ? Thanks Guys !!!!

    If you can talk to the tobacconist, you should let him give you the spiel. That is almost certainly going to give you the best results. Fondle all the pipes, smell all the tobaccos and have fun picking everything out.
    If it's still busy and he can't spend a lot of time with you, you could do worse than grabbing a corncob and an ounce of Lane 1Q.

    But, yeah, if you're not sure if you'll like it (spoiler: you will), a corncob is a great way to find out.

    The water is fine and not very deep. Come on in, no really...

    For the record, I really enjoy my cob.

    Hi Keith

    I am a noob at pipes as well. A bit intimidating at first for sure. I after much experimenting i have found i like Flake tobacco best. The burn the taste the way it packs in the pipe. I use the Frank method to load the pipe there is a video on you tube. Escoudo, Orlick Golden sliced, Mac Baren navy flake are my favorites. It doesn't replace a good cigar but it is a change of pace.

    I am not of a fan of my B&M, i have had three very bad experiences in there and prefer not to give them anymore of my money, hell, they basically even told me that when the clerk said, i was better off buying my cigars online, he doesnt have time to compare pricing. But anyway, lol...I got a ton of help in chat last night, and plan on putting an online order in for a nice Gentlemens Bent Cob, tool, and cleaners...not sure about baccy yet . Thanks Tom !!
