I smoke em.
Started with a small hardwood. Something cheap.
Got a corn cob 3 years ago.
Took better care of it.
Wife bought some big, cheap walnut lookin’ “made in China” pipe for Christmas.
Bowl cracked from heat (and I smoke real slow)
Just bought a bag of 12 REALLY cheap corn cobs from amazon. They seem like a realistic version of: “Imma turn this here cob into a smokin’ pipe. They are terrible quality compared to a real Missouri meerschaum.
Smoked one, careful like, and it was very pleasant. Light. Cool. All the leaks in the bowl and stem sorta aerated the smoke.
I smoke almost exclusively black cavendish. Sometimes I mix a bit of chamomile tea into the first pinch.
Any of you know the pleasure of smoking pipe tobacco and want to share your experience?
