What do you do with dottle?
Dottle? Never heard of it. I smoke to a fine white ash every time. I also only need to light once with a match, in a hurricane. I also believe in the wonders of heel cake. Newbs, all of you.

Dottle: That wet mass of tobacco left at the bottom of your pipe.

I assume most people dump their dottle, but occasionally I am surprised by the guy who likes to dip his dottle. At least he doesn't dip someone else's dottle!

Conan Doyle wrote that Holmes saved his dottle every day and used the total as his fisrt bowl of the next day. Yikes!


Of course, Watson's and other's eyebrows used to rise pretty high I'll bet. But there are times when I sort of hate to stop re-lighting that bowl cause it's gotten just to the point of being the perfect flavor - and do stop only because I know I'll burn the crap outta myself. So saving the dottle might just be a good idea...kinda like what we used to do with the dregs of other bowls we used to smoke. The dottle in 'those' pipes used to produce quite the effect indeed. Hmmm. I feel a little experiment in the offing! Hello! The game is afoot!

I'd like to have resopnded with the first answer, but I don't usually get quite to the bottom. On the other hand, in my undergrad days, when I had $5 a week to spend on everything, the dottles got saved and ground up into a tin where all bits left at the bottom of pouches were dumped. By the end of the semester, I was smoking what was in the tin (outside, my suite mates put up with Captain Black, Granger, and the like, but wouldn't tolerate that mix)

And yes, I got the idea from the Sherlock Holmes stories.

My favorite brewmeister who's brew I haven't had the privilege of trying, there is room at the table for all types. Different strokes and all that stuff.

But yeah, weird.

That's what I like about the people on this forum. All the wise-crack responses I could think of greeted me when I clicked on the topic. Very Happy

I have a small pile of dottle in a flower pot on my deck. There are a few blends I have to force myself to stop smoking if I don't want to damage my pipes and myself.

If you pack & smoke it right, there isn't any to worry about.

If there is, let it dry for a couple hours or overnight & smoke it.

Well then, that sums it up pretty good.

I rarely have any dottle, such as it is. What is there isn't fit for smoking.

JMHO

I dump it, but lately I have been saving it to use as packing material in the dreaded Halloween bombing run. bom Razz

Or perhaps I'll grind it up with some candy corns for that xtra special and festive fall snuff. What a Face

Just you and me so far, Rob. Very Happy

I love the dregs in the bottom of the bowl, so I just keep going until they're done. The smoke lets me know--if it don't light anymore, the bowl's done.

Cool

I don't usually pay attention to other pipesters' quandary with this "dottle" stuff. Do most people usually end the bowl and just dump out the last, what, 1/8th bowl? Is it consistent each time? How the heck would you know when it's time to stop, taste? Weight? Draw? *shrug*

Serious questions, here. Seems complicated. "Dottle" for me was just one or two pieces that I noticed stuck to the side of the chamber about mid-way up. Laughing I knock them off and eject them with the ash.

Cool

With the C&D English-style blends I prefer this is rarely, if indeed ever, an issue.

But with the one match qualifier, I had to go with the Judge Judy option.

Hmmmm. The question has me wondering if I should start saving it. Same as I once wondered what would happen and how long it would take to save up a marble-sized blob of toe jam.

I save dottle, mix it 50/50 with Elmer's and use it to affix stubborn envelopes.

Awhile back, I posted a thread about the virtues of salt water rinsing. Since I usually give my tongue a good lashing with the best part of every bowl, I always rinse with salt water right before bed. This allows me to wake with a refreshed tongue, which salivates at the thought of a bowl of morning Froggie, with you guessed it, moisture laden and flavorful dottle.

I've always believed in the old adage, "If something is worth doing, it's worth over doing!" cheers

I had more when I smoked aromatics. Now it is pretty much as Kyles described. A couple of blakes on the side of the bowl.

Had another thought on this. Since I smoke mostly McC's 'bacs, I just take the "dottle", if any, and put it on my french fries Razz Who watches Judge Judy? Judge Joe Brown is where it's at Razz
