I stroked on over. I absolutely love it.

I really like Briars and they can be found for as little as $30 and very good Pipes. When I first came over I bought some ďreal Briars,Ē from pipesandcigars dot com and they were great to start with. I bought a few Cobbs as they are budget friendly as well. So are Mr. Brogís off Amazon but these are Polish made from pear tree root wood.

Any choice is good. We could all pitch in with some favorite tobaccos. All you need to do is watch a couple YouTube videos on how to pack, light up and then you start smoking. It takes a few weeks to improve your technique, but itís so rewarding. I love all the different choices with tobaccos as well as blending. Truly much more economical than cigars, although I still enjoy cigars, itís just a different way to appreciate the tobacco leaf.

Cigars seem to need a 40+ minute time commitment, and while you can smoke smaller bowls and have great experiences, I find 30-45 minutes are perfect.

Iíve met some local guys who pipe as well as smoke cigars, but in Winter it seems Pipes are kings.

I love snagging an inexpensive estate pipe from one of the few vendors we all love like smokingpipes dot com, tobaccopipes dot com or even P&C. No reason you need more than 2 pipes to really get started.

Itís a gentle learning curve. Itís tons of fun too. Great people on this side that also puff on cigars as well.

Once you start and you pass over a couple frustrating moments you will really appreciate how good Smoking a pipe rally is. So amazingly satisfying.

@GOT14U, I'm so glad to see you dipping your toe in the pipe world. Pipes are a great complement to cigars and are a delight when you can't go outside to smoke.

I agree with all the great advice you've been given: cobs, bic, YouTube, Czech tool, etc. But as @Champagne InHand says, a very nice briar does not have to be expensive and there is something very satisfying about the look and feel of a briar pipe. Estate pipes from reputable sites like smokingpipes.com are the best deals in briars and some of them are even unsmoked.

Many of us started with accessible aromatics, like Captain Black White, but as an experienced cigar smoker you may be able to handle VaPers and English blends sooner than most.

Welcome to the pipe side Jerod!

Hey lookee here, I have your addy too.

Ditto on the jars - little ones you can so you can smoke through it in a timely fashion when you get them out of storage.
