Long Draws or Short Puffs ?
A few weeks into the pipe enjoyment I have a question for the old crusty pipe smokers...
I have gotten comfortable with the packing and lighting and keeping lit a bowl of tobacco, averaging about 20-30 minutes without a relight, and keeping the bowl decently cool, as the title states though I have found that if I go with long draws on the pipe I tend to have more of an issue keeping it lit, as compared to shorter 3-5 puffs.
I haven't had any issue with the bowl getting too hot or getting a burnt taste of any type doing the shorter puffs, I am enjoying and getting good flavor.
Question is I have is this just like in cigars as experience builds technique will fine tune and develop, or is it more of a personal preference style and if it works and is enjoyable then I should not worry.
Kinda looking to see what other do as well.
