    I like cheap pipes and I can not lie..... :banana:

    So a friend of mine and I bought one of the new Missouri Meerschaum Diplomat pipes, it's a hard maple bowl with a cob look. Finished in a natural color. It's also a filtered pipe with a nice drawl.

    Smokes a bit hot if you are a heavy puffer, but for a relaxing smoke I like it well.
    One of the advantages to me is I smoke when I'm in my shop or working around the house, I like a good smoker but do not want to break an expensive pipe during a project.

    This is not a pipe to sit and relax with a glass of Brandy, but it's nice to relax with a good vodka and 7UP or a hot cup of coffee. :dkn:

    They came out with the maple bowls when the corn crops were really bad. What blends have you smoked in it up till now?

    I get blended tobacco from a local smoke shop, I like their Amaretto, Great Dane, and Rum Runner.
    It's just now getting a decent singe to the bowl and the tobacco flavor is starting to come into it's own.

    Objection your Honor. :doh: A cob can be smoked with Ripple, box wine, Koolaide, Beer, Brandy, moonshine, or anything else you can think to drink. :wedg:

    Jeez ..... and they say I'm a redneck :beck:

    I like the way the maple looks but would imagine a cob smokes cooler

    While I have no desire to try one, I am glad it works for you.

    The "Conventional Wisdom" is that maple will burn out sooner than briar. But how much does that matter. Is it a case of one lifetime vs 2 lifetimes. Maple is very dense and durable, so it should be a good smoker for years.

    I would guess as it gets caked, it will give you years of pleasant smoking.
