[quote="Natch"]Unless it's an older style of Missouri Meerschaum MacArthur pipe (and it doesn't look like a MM) it might be more difficult to build a cake in. Is there the traditional MM yellow sticker on the bottom or their logo branded into the hardwood plug on the bottom? MM pipes are soaked in a plaster of pares solution so that they are almost a hybrid cob/clay pipe. The cobs absorb the clay well and give them a very different character (and ability to resist burning) than an un-treated cob pipe.

If it's another brand, it might be bare cob and that, I would think (never had one, so this is just conjecture) would be hard to get a cake in and I would think it would burn easily?

Well Natch it's a bare cob no MM sticker.. But it has been giving me much cooler smoking now.. Just returned from five days of camping and kayaking with a bunch of great people.. Got a chance to put good carbon coat on four pipes I took with me.. Used many gifted blends and enjoyed all of them. Now to catch up.. Very Happy

Rule of thumb: 5Bros to break in every pipe. 5Bros smokes cool and clean to the bottom of the bowl, usually to a fine white/gray ash, while charring the sides of the bowl evenly. Very little aftertaste to contaminate future smokes. Walnut is always tasty after 4-6 bowls of 5Bros, though.

FYI, a cake is neither required or IMHO desired in the cobs. Cake would stop the cob from smoking as cool as it does.

I smoke mine then clean after each smoke. A paper towel twisted down in the bowl and turned several times, plus a couple of pipe cleaners down the stem and good to go.

well ya know Im actually itching pretty bad for some COB action.
I had a cob, that I used at work , when I got to take smoke breaks at work.
I smoked alot of Capt. Black out of it (when I first started smoking pipes).
Somehow I lost it though, and kinda wishing like hell I would have not.
I am gonna order a couple non-filtered MM cobs and a couple of Forever stems (they look sexy) next time I get a pipe allowence from the 5 feet of fury cheers

I hear ya grease... My girl lets me know just what she thinks most of the time.. The other times I am in trouble cause I did not guess what the heck she was hinting at.. But so far she has not gotten on my case with all these ebay scores.. Tell her I am saving money dear.. Which I am.. But getting back to the MM Cobs.. I got one a few weeks ago and its better each time I smoke it.. I am taking it out tonight with some type of yummy flake that was gifted to me. Good work pipe too.. Let me know how it goes.. Is your birthday coming up ?? Mom's get a tad soft if your good at birthdays..

Chuck..ya gotta get yourself a MM Freehand,great smoker. Only drawback I've found is the shank may split. I had mine silver banded after re-glueing several times. Also if you get a new cob you can really enjoy that Walnut. I smoke it myself!!

Hey Funn.. I will have to check out the MM Freehand.. They may make them with solid wood shank now. Otherwise I will get some fine copper wire and wrap it like a tip on a fishing pole and glue that baby solid. Taking the MM Great Dane Cob out tonight with some Germain's Brown Flake to chat with the boys at Deer Camp. cheers cheers
