Got me a cob, and just wondering if I should treat it different then my briars when it comes to cleaning and maintenance.

Smoke it, let cake form or don't - I haven't noticed one bit of difference either way. I will run a pipe cleaner through the bit and then a doubled over pipe cleaner through the shank after a day's worth of smoking on one(about 3-4 bowls). That's all I do.

I’m with houtenziel,I really can’t tell a difference with or without cake built up,I have a CG that has a pretty good carbon layer and smoke everything from aroes to gaslight in it and haven’t had any problems,all my other cobs I scrape out every 4 or 5 bowls, they all smoke good

Maintain as you would any fine pipe and you will be happily rewarded . . .

One of these days I should smoke some of my cobs. I just like the dang briars so much that they always get grabbed first

I treat my cobs like Simplepipes. Common sense. Not going to make it a science project.
