For well over a year I've exclusively been smoking seven corn cobs. The way I smoke, even a MM Mark Twain is only a 10 to 15 minute smoke. But, a couple of weeks ago, I began rotating four meerschaums; only one intricately carved.(Sevket) I'd forgotten how cool and dry they smoke, and to my taste, no coloration of the tobacco.

Suggestion on the cob. Get a MM general. Nice deep bowl. I get an hour from CH or SWR.

DL, check out Meershaum Market online. They have a lot of pipes and prices are pretty reasonable.

Sometimes you can get an estate meer on ebay for cheap, I was snapping up Peterson meers from the seventies for cheap on ebay a couple of years ago. Sadly people have cottoned on to this and they are no longer cheap. :cry:
