New to tobacco in general, I've smoked a few cigars, but that's about it. But, about a year ago, my wife and I stopped by a little smoke shop, picked up a couple cigars, and on a whim, I bought a cheap wood pipe ($20) and a couple ounces of flavored (?) Tobacco.

I smoked a bowl occasionally, loved the smell and taste, but was actually clueless to the whole art and traditions of pipe smoking. I didn't realize anything about packing, and basic pipe care. A few months ago,the pipe broke.

Last week, I wanted another, but lucky me, the guy in the smoke shop knew a little about pipes, and clued me in to packing, building ash, false lighting, cleaning and resting.

I picked out a little curved, black H.I.S. Briar that I liked the look of, for at least twice as much as I meant to spend...

My interest was piqued, and I've spent a lot of time reading about Briars, and pipe smoking in general. So, with my new briar and a head full of new information, I packed in some flavored tobacco, settled into a chair on my back porch and found a bit of magic.

Today, I ordered a couple cobs, and a $5 maple. These will help me try new tobacco and rest my briar. ...As well as another thing to experience for its own merits.

A lot of my searches for information led me to this forum for the answers, so it seemed like a good idea to join.

I think it was a very good idea for you to join.Smile Also new to tobacco and pipes, and like you, had only smoked a few cigars over the years (nothing fancy or expensive). Have learned a ton from asking my noob questions and reading old post. Have never gotten a snarky answer to any of my questions either, just good solid advice, and information. Great bunch of people here, glad to have you aboard. afro

Welcome along Jenkins. You started out in pretty much the same way as myself; a few cigars and then discovered the briar. Hope you enjoy both the journey and this board as much as I have.

Welcome to BoB Jenkins, but at age 44 you're hardly an "Old Man". Some of here are almost twice that....LOL!

Anywhoo, lots of friendly folks and tons of great info here. Hope you enjoy your pipe journey!


Cheers,

RR

Thanks for the welcome.

Yeah, I'm probably a bit young to call myself Old Man, but I've been using that name online for a few years. Smile

A lot of the stickied posts in the forums have already given me a lot of information.
