    any tobacco pipe smokers out there?

    my grandpa passed away a little over a year ago and left one of his pipes to me. I'm still trying to figure it out. I'm only smoking it on occasion, when the mood strikes, and I don't chew or smoke cigarettes. got some tobacco from a local shop in Sioux city that the owner makes himself called briar and bow. my question is that I can't seem to keep it lit. I have to light it every other puff or it burns out without taking much time between puffs. also, I assume you smoke it similar to a cigar and don't inhale all the smoke?

    any words of wisdom are much appreciated.

    I smoke a pipe on occasion, and relighting the tobacco is not uncommon, unless I chain puff. That tends to make me a tad ill.

    Try charring the tobacco on the first couple of lights. Sometimes I get a good cherry this way.

    Maybe your Grandfather wasn't smoking tobacco out of his pipes?

    by chain smoking are you meaning leaving it in and constantly puffing?

    Re: any tobacco pipe smokers out there?

    Pipes will go out fairly frequently. You indeed treat it like you would a cigar in regards to not inhaling. Unless you want a quick death, I suppose.

    I have only smoked a pipe one or two times, but I had a buddy who obtained some of his grandfather's old pipes and would rock a corderoy blazers (with elbow patches) while puffing the pipe on the walk to class. Gave him an air of authority. One guy actually thought he was a professor. Ahhhhh, good times.

    This.

    And it burns a lot better if it is packed correctly. Also when you're lighting it, try taking short, shallow puffs.

    Not to that extreme. I don't inhale to much of the pipe tobacco. Guess speed puffing is a better term.


    The OP can also try blowing some air back in the pipe to keep the embers going. I have had limited success, but I don't try very often.

    there is just a lot of nostalgia to the sight and smell of it. my grandpa taught me how to be a carpenter amongst many other things and was always my hero. this is a small link to him that I can carry on.

    So do people who smoke this like the smell, taste, or what? I can't find the enjoyment out of a cigar or pipe, but my dad loves cigars. What am I missing?

    Taste, smell, and you get to look really, really cool.

    Pack it firm and even, but give it room to "rise". Once you have got the starter lights in, give it a small squish.
