I recently came.across add for meerschaum insert into.the bowl.that. is supposed to make briar pipes smoke like.a meerschaum pipe, cooler, etc. Than a,briar. Apparently there. Is space between the bottom of this device.and the bottom.of the bowl. I.am always looking for.ways to decrease any health risks associated with pipe smoking as well as the heat/tongue bite aspects. Does anyone have any.thoughts or opinions on these meerschaum bowl.inserts? I've ordered some.to.try.them.out.as I hsve.a collection of Dunhill pipes that have simply become too.hot for me to smoke,to my chagrin.
