    I dried out some tobacco the other night and forgot about it. It ended up being left out for over six hours. I lit up the pipe and had flames shooting up from my cob. A bit too dry I guess...

    Hi All,

    Have never done that particular trick - but have got distracted before when someone spoke to me as I was lighting up a cob and set fire to the lacquer - that is spectacular particularly in a stiff Northumberland North Easter of a wind I can assure you!

    Happy smoking and hope the cob recovered,

    Best as ever

    Gerry

    What are you guys using to light your pipes, an airstrike (try echelon rather than wing-abreast)? I just use a lighter myself.

    There should be no mushroom clouds seen above yer cobz! No if's, ands, or butt's about it, no mushroomz! :)

    yeah, I let a cob-top catch fire once.......was lighting my cob and watching a girl cross the street (dirty old man that I am ;) ) and the next thing I knew, a flicker of orangish-yellow flame danced right in front of me.......bet it was funnier than all get out to anyone who noticed what I was doing or "not" doing. Oh well..........mind yer bowl!

    I've found Firedance Flake and Shortcut To Nosehairs to be particularly volatile....
