Pipes can sure be expensive. I think in my dad's collection most of the pipes are medium priced range. Mostly bought back in the late 60s to mid 70s so I dont know what they cost then. Probably around $80-$100 now. My uncle was bit fancier and I'm sure some of his pipes would be well into the $300-$400 range today. Mine, except for the drugstore pipes average around $90.

I'm brewing in a few more weekends. Will start around 8 am so the weather will be nice and cool. This will be the first time I've brewed and smoked a pipe at the same time. What a perfect combination.

My dad use to do the same thing, he smoked in the house as well. But the garage, my mom use to call it "your Dad's out puttering in the garage"

"Puttering", what kind of word is that anyway?

Just make sure you keep the bag of tobacco well away from the Irish Moss.

The latter, a good smoke, it does not make.

You HAVE to get a pipe. Even if you only use it to smoke the last 2 inches of the cigar, you will get more than your money's worth.

I used to wonder about that too. the I discovered which drawer he kept the porn mags in. I didn't want to know the details anymore and made sure to make a LOT of noise before venturing out into the garage.

An awesome word. My mom used to say that as well.

Good pint, er, point.

aygov, Next time you go to a drug store (CVS, WalGreens) look behind the register for drugstore bags of tobacco. Around there you will likely find a Grabow pipe (A Duke, or a Savoy most likely). Should be around $10 at most.

stay away from the bulk bags of tobacco (IMO) but a pouch of Prince albert is a decent smoke. Captain Black is amazingly aromatic but a bit rough. I actually like to blend the PA with the CB for a decent working mans tobacco if I can;'t get to a smoke shop for a quility tin.

I tried CB a few times and that is a good word for it -rough. Smells great when somebody else is smoking it though. Prince Albert is really a pretty decent smoke, nice aroma, burns well and smokes cool.

My dad smoked Borkum Riff Rum for a few years. Smelled awesome but the few times I tried it didn't care for the flavor. Some pipe tobaccos smell great but dont taste all that well.

Loved the smell of the cheap drug store cherry that my dad smoked (strange how it makes me think more of sandalwood and morrocan vanilla than cherry). I tried some. that's what fouled the one pipe.
