    Friends,

    I was visiting the not so-local local tobaconnist and was turned onto a house blend called 'Grandfather'. It is a cube cut burley. It looks like Grape-Nuts cereal. And tastes great, slightly sweet and nutty, maybe a slight hint of raisin (I don't like smoking raisins, but that is the best way to describe it). Better yet the kids and wife all say that it smells good when burning--a big plus around here. I found this at the Tobacco Barn and they do have it online as well www.tobaccobarn.com

    One question though, what is the best way to pack it? I've smoked two bowls and being as how it seems to be dense nuggets of tobacco, it loads a lot different than other tobaccos. suggestions are welcome.

    Gravity fill (not packed) and lightly tamped at the top, then Fire away! Leave some expansion room so don't pack it much if any at all. Sounds like you've just found another "family friendly" toby! SCORE! & Congratz!

    That's what I was going to say too -- simple gravity fill. Just drop it in the pipe, tap the sides a few times to settle it, then light up. A good false light and gentle tamping to start should get the pack right.
