Even if I dont partake in a certain hobby I always love to go into a shop that caters to one thing. Seeing a million different kinds of tea, or cigars, or beef jerky, or whatever... really appeals to the kid in me.

Never thought about it that way but you're totally right. The amount of care, love, energy etc that goes into people's hobbies is amazing and the only thing more amazing is that no matter how obscure or specific someone's obsession is there is always someone else who is just as into it.

So the gurgle? Moisture cooking out of the tobacco condensing in the stem? Is that what's going on?

It's saliva goin into pipe. Btw I just got a brand new zippo blue and can't use it for pipe but would work great for cigar / cig. Anyone willing to trade?

Thanks aygov! I'm waiting for another faucet and some 3/8" 16TPI brass inserts to come in. I'm going to take motorcycle handgrips I bought years ago but never used and mount them as tap handles. The HD logo on the freezer will bring the whole thing together. Amazing what a little paint can do to an old white refrigerator.

I am a lucky bastid in that I still purchase from the same quality shop my old man did when i was a tiny tot. I have great memories going to Uhle's as a kid with my dad. http://www.uhles.com/

:edit: apparently they ship! You guys should have a try of their stuff, it is very good.

Nice pipe stuff and your shop looks like a nice step back in time. Love all the rich dark wood, briars on the wall, jars of bulk tobacco! We have nothing like that around here. I think one of the malls in the next town over has a John Ts (or at least they used to) but that hardly compares to your shop!

Oh man, I don't know how I've overlooked this for so long. Great thread, Dan! Prost!

I recently bought a cheap pipe from the tobacco shop that I buy my cigars at. My dad smoked a pipe when I was really young, and I gave it a try about 13 years ago, but never stuck with it. But recently I'd been buying cheap pipe tobacco cigars as my daily smokers, so I figured I'd give it another try.

It really is a lost art, as in there's actually a technique to it. This time around, I'm really enjoying it. I've mainly been smoking cheap stuff, Captain Black Royal. I like the black cavendish/golden blend, really nice smoke. When I finish this latest pouch of Royal, I'm going to try some different brands and blends. I'm guessing just like my stogies, variety is the spice when it comes to pipe tobacco. Any suggestions would be more than welcome.

Happy smokin'!!

Thanks NB I'm glad you like the thread! I started it back in march and it just sort of smoldered for awhile. The cool weather seems to have resurrected it.. ha ha.

I've smoked a number of different tobaccos over the years but the only one that I remembered well was MacBarens Virginia #1. PipesandCigars screwed up my order in a good way, sent me 8 oz of it bulk instead of the 3.5oz tin I ordered. I was a bit peeved but it really worked in my favor. If you'd like to give it a shot PM me your name and address and I'll share a few ounces with you!

Here's a short discription from tobaccoreview.com and it is pretty accurate
Quote:
A ready rubbed tobacco, manufactured from a selection of choice, ripe Virginia tobaccos, which gives Virginia No.1 a mild, sweet smoke.
Cheers!

Moisture from the tobacco infused with tar, and saliva from the stem.

Ha. Yeah. so, that wonderfully aromatic smoke I was on about not too long ago. I dedicated myself to finding it in the only best way I know how. Each night I load a bowl with a different tobacco and set that tobacco aside. A process of elimination. If the next morning the intensity of the aroma I seek has improved then I know I have found that blend.

Started with the more exotic blends. Blue Note, nope. DaVinci, Nope. Oriental no. 1, etc...

Which blend was it?

None of them. No blend of Latakia, Cavendish, or Perique.

It was all Virginia. Macbarens Virginia No.1 to be precise.

Ironic.
