Bad Influence...

So I was talking to @Dran the other day and he asked if I was going to pick up one of @UBC03ís pipes that he was selling. I said no, that I had enough hobbies to spend money on and that my wife would likely kill me if I picked up another. This answer wasnít good enough for Joe. No, it just wouldnít do. So what does he do? He bombs my mailbox and says ďYouíre getting into pipe smoking whether you like it or not!Ē



So, with that being said.....

Hi! My name is Brian, and I guess Iím a pipe smoker now! Iím still a bit of a noob when it comes to cigars, but Iíve been hanging out on that side of the forum for a few months now. So no I have to figure out how to do this! I guess itís time to start reading stickies and how toís over here!

Thanks Joe! I appreciate the bomb my friend!

Subtle very subtle, nothing quite like a gentle nudge over the edge from a friend!

That's the spirit! Great starter kit.

Cobs are so forgiving, smoke great, taste great, and need no real break-in, but you'll get some charred wood bitterness when you finish the first couple bowls as the hardwood in the bottom gets carbonized. Just keep going to get it out of the way. While letting a cigar go out is embarrassing, with a pipe expect to relight it a few times or more. Hold your hand around the bowl to feel the temperature - if you can't hold it to your cheek (on your face lol) without discomfort let it sit, relight, and slow down. Getting that pace will be the key when you get into briars. Check out some videos on packing but don't stress about it - it isn't as tricky as it can sound.

@Rabidawise, welcome to the pipe side of town. Thanks to @Dran, you'll now be viewed as a distinguished gentleman with impeccable taste and judgment. That's how my wife and children view me.
