Ok to everyone asking. I think it smokes fine. i have noticed no weird flavor etc. a the draw is a little too open but not too bad. To glue the antler in place i used elmers wood glue, and on the inside i covered that with pipe mud and put a hardwood plug in the bottom of the pipe and built that up with mud until it was the right height for the hole. the horn goes in about as far as the wood does on a regular MM pipe.
