    Tom beat me to it, but I was going to recommend you start with the Sugar Barrel or the Billy Budd, they should both be easy to pack. There are lots of opinions and techniques for filling a bowl, but I started this way: youtube pipesmagazine - Bing Videos

    The key is to just relax and go with your gut. There are techniques that will improve your smoking over time, but for now just have fun.

    edit: dang, he beat me to it again!

    Ok - another question: I read in the "101" stuff that they recommended letting the pipe rest a couple days in between smokes?? Did I misread something or is that in fact true??

    I ain't ! I'm just a little large for my size!

    I usually try to give mine 24 hours. The briar absorbs moisture and needs time to dry. If you plan on smoking more frequently, a corncob makes a good second pipe for very little money. There are, of course, guys who don't rest their pipes, and they love them too. Just know that, over time, your smoke will grow ever more moist and eventually sour. There are pipe sweeteners if that happens.

    Yep, you need to let them rest (24 hours like Tom said), so I guess more pipes are in your future!! Just look at what happened to Hannibal...

    I'm pretty sure I didn't even post in this thread until the ordinances were in the air. Therefore, this was a complete surprise.
    First and foremost, thanks so much Warren! The aromas are absolutely amazing. The last pipe I had in my mouth was a Dr Grabow filled with Captain Black circa 1979 in college. All I remember was the tongue bite LOL.

    This will be a fun slope to negotiate and I'm looking forward to learning the ropes and nuances of the piper side. I don't even know enough to ask any questions yet so I'll surf around, read...and hopefully soak in an education.

    Again, thanks for your generosity and also to Hekthor for a fun contest to watch unfold. Being a recipient was icing on the cake.

    Here's evidence of the carnage before the batteries puked:

    More than enough to keep you interested until Pipe Acquisition Disorder and Tobacco Acquisition Disorder set in. Loving these bombs, fellas.

    All newbies relight a lot. A lot of experienced smokers relight a lot. It just takes practice (if you want to get good at not relighting, which isn't a requirement).

    So, which tobacco did you decide to start with?
