Not the band, the saying...Keep It Simple Stupid. I've decided to try a little experiment. I've decided to rest my briars for a bit and exclusively smoke my cob (soon to be cobs). I've also decided to only smoke one tobacco at a time while I'm doing this. I only have a small amount of a handful of tobaccos on hand so this is easily doable for me. I have to say at first I did not get the whole cob obsession; I was less than impressed. BUT, as I've smoked mine a little more here and there it's really coming into its own. So, in the interest of keeping things simple, I decided to exclusively smoke my cob for a bit. I figure if I burn it out, I'll just get another one. Their cheap and easy to replace. Heck, I've already chewed through the stem on the one I have anyways. I'm starting this experiment with a pouch of CH I used to break my cob in with and will move to the random pouch of PA that I've had sitting around when that runs out. Then I'll move through a couple of English blends I have, mostly a couple of the Frog Morton's. If everything goes well and once everything runs out, I may try to stick to only 1 OTC tobacco at a time for a bit, as they are relatively cheap and easy to find. Like I said, trying to keep it simple. I may have also forgot to mention that the wife and I are also trying to get out of debt so this will help. I really like my briars but I also find that everything gets a little complicated; trying to keep up with which one I smoked last and how long they've been resting, what blends I've been smoking in what pipes, etc etc etc. I know it doesn't have to be that complicated but my OCD kicks in and I cant help it. The ease and simplicity, and the price of the cobs is very appealing. I'm on my third consecutive bowl in my cob as we speak and I'm noticing no ill effects so far. I know there's a lot of guys around here that only smoke or at least mostly smoke cobs so I'm sure I'm not alone in this. I'll let you know how it turns out, or if my ADD pulls me back to me briars.
