Thanks Dan. The photos don't do it justice.

I might just have to send off for this grab bag deal. I like corncobs they are light weight and smoke cool from the get go.

For sure. Figure I get a pipe for the car, the camper, the garage and a few for around the house. They're far better than the $5 cobs at the local tobacco/cigar shop, which is what I'd been using on camping trips. Maybe I can actually make headway on ditching the cigs. I'm like you, I like to stop, smoke and think while working on a project. If I have a choice between pipe and cigarette, I'll take a pipe.

I went the eCig route. Been nearly a month and a half, I think, since my last cigarette.

Just happened on this thread, but I'll be keeping up with it from now on. I've been a pipe smoker since I was 18--my older brother bought me a nice briar for my birthday. I've been known to enjoy an occasional pipe ever since. Currently I've got five or six--a corncob that's so tar-covered as to be almost totally unsmokable, kept only for sentimental reasons; three briars that are my go-to pipes: a straight bulldog, a half-bent billiard and a full-bent billiard; and a clay pipe that I bought in Jordan a couple of years ago, and which I've never really been able to enjoy, it smokes so hot.

Haven't had a pipe in at least a couple of months, but reading this thread has sparked the urge. Think I'll go home, pour a couple of fingers of scotch and sit on the porch. Thanks for the motivation!

I've been thinking about that more and more, I may have to try it out. I've been smoking less cigs in general, but I still have a tendency to chain smoke in certain situations. I'm a writer, and when I write I've been known to smoke one after the other. An eCig type thing may be a good solution to that.

NB that is a great idea! I smoked cigs. at one point in life and and loved to smoke. I remember back when the saying was kick the habit. Much easier said than kick the addiction to nicotine, or maybe not.. Going to finish this post with a PM to you my friend.

I certainly don't need them, but I could not resist. Ordered a bag-o-corn.

Okay, I know this is a pipe smoking thread and I sidetrack it occasionally. Like HBT, we have common interest in brewing. On this thread there is a common interest in homebrewers who smoke pipes. But I am guilty of leading this thread off topic with talk about Big Band music, old movies and most recently the brew stand I just built.

Now I'm going to go OT once again because I feel comfortable talking to you guys. I'm building an electric HLT out of my 8 gallon aluminum HLT. The kettle is already set up with a pickup tube, ball valve, thermometer and sight gauge. (Thank you Bobby of BrewHardware!) A couple days ago I took the plunge into electric. Got a 1500 watt heating element from Lowes, some wiring stuff and drilled a hole in the HLT. That's always a bit scary, drilling a hole in a perfecty sound pot. Now I'm waiting for the potting compund to cure.. spinning my wheels.

I don't know how effective 1500 watts will be at heating 6-7 gallons of mash water or whether it will get the sparge water up to heat within an hour. Gonna find out though. This was an inexspensive go at it. Ten bucks for the element and ten for the wiring stuff. I'll test it once the liquid black tape I used for potting compound cures. I think that is going to be a few days from now. Then I'll install the heating element, fill the pot with 6 gallons of water and time how long it takes to get to 170F.

Let us know how it works Dan, I'm sure I'm not the only one who's interested.

Sounds pretty cool, man! You'll have to post pics once you're up and running.
