Re: 1st time Pipe smoking and it feels like inhaling chilli powder from a gas chamber...

A few things could be the cause. #1, don't try to get big gales of smoke like from a cigarette or cigar. Pipes have to be sipped, đrawn on vey lightly or they will burn hot. #2 tobacco must be dry, just short of crumbly or it will be steamy, hot and hard to keep lit. #3 can't inhale like a cigarett...

Re: Mastercraft Meerschaum

I was preparing to detail my pipe today when I noticed something amiss. Using a magnifying glass I could see a very fine hairline crack on the bottom of the pipe. Easy to miss, no foul. I contacted the seller for a return and he sent me a nice note apologizing, telling me to keep the pipe, and refu...

Re: Burley; what do you recommend for a 'newbie'?

If I were to share why , I'd have to ban myself . Move to America [ ? ] I've laid down some seeds in preparation for Spring. Most people couldn't identify a tobacco plant so fingers crossed. It pains me to break the law but to quote Thomas Jefferson; "If a law is unjust, a man is not only righ...

Re: Burley; what do you recommend for a 'newbie'?

Aussies aren't as rabid about politics as Americans. The gulf between the two sides is not as great as in the U.S. We have the choice between Tweedle-Dee & Tweedle-even-Dumber. We rarely discuss politics amongst ourselves. Although there is a growing discontent. At least it's good to know that ...
