Yeah, but #3 doesn't really count since tbat"'s just his showing how he uses a TORCH lighter. That's kinda singular.

I usually take a pinch drop it in the bowl and tap the bowl sides to let it settle at the botton, then another pinch and do the same only I then press down with my finger and finally a third pinch that rises slightly above the bowl rim and press down firmly till it's all level with the rim then it's match time!! If the 'baccy is not as dry as i like I'll let that bowl sit for some tme before re-pressing it down and putting a match to! It's the method I use probably 95 % of the time with 98% of the 'baccy I smoke! Been doing it this way now for almost 40+ years, don't know what the name of it is, only that it's worked for me all these years!! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

I think after, what, 109 years smoking pipes, Monbla is really the expert around here!  Laughing

I've tried the Frank method and a few of the others, but I always go back to the ol' three-step method for ribbon cut and rubbed-out flakes. Sometimes cubed flakes depending on what blend it is.

Works.

Me happy.

I didn't know anyone one else did the tap the side of the bowl method. It works pretty good for me. Just have to a little careful with a more damp baccy.

From the article:

STG wrote:
All pipe tobacco leaves first undergo a process called “casing” where moisture is added along with subtle amounts of sweeteners such as sugar, rum, cocoa and or licorice.

I think a lot of people forget this and think only aromatics are cased.

Edit: and people use casing and topping interchangeably, which are helpfully differentiated here.

I think Tambolaka might be exclusive of this treatment...or use something different...like tree frog extract, or water buffalo tallow, or whatever.
