I always enjoy a good corn cob pipe, especially when smoking outdoors.  My main go to pipe is a single X Ashtion apple.  As for as tobacco, I'm an old fashioned guy that smokes what my dad and granddad smoked, Prince Albert.

I never tried mixing tobaccos in the bowl or outside it either. Have a friend up in NY that loves Sullivan Powell's Gentleman's Mixture. He devoted a lot of time and effort trying to duplicate it. He got tantalizingly close but not quite.

I'm curious about how you decide what blends to mix in the bowl.

My only pipe I got restored off the shaving forums. A Calagal Natural.

Smoked a local blend from the tobacconist down the road. Pretty much smells and tastes like amaretto mix to be honest. I find it satisfying enough though.

Gentlemen, I've never smoked.  However. I've always found pipes to be interesting and beautiful.  At times I go into tobacco shops just to look at the pipes.   I'm glad this thread was started and look forward to following it.

The tin of Telegraph Hill is pretty much empty. I just sprinkled the little left on the top to help get the flake tobacco burning.

Google "SmokingPipes" (best online pipe shop around), and run a search on YouTube for "how to smoke a tobacco pipe".

Ok, more necessity than a normal way to load the pipe. I've never been a big fan of folding/stuffing flakes. I never found the trick to getting the pipe packed correctly. Just worked better for me to rub it out and then load the pipe. Of course the down side is it never comes out even and you've got some rubbed out flake drying until the next bowl.
