I dried out a flake to the point it was bone dry and crumbled when I broke it up, but when I smoked it it still gurgled. I'm using a peterson B10. I don't get it, I don't think I was smoking too fast. Could it just be a gurgly pipe? It tasted great dry (probably better than moist) and the pipe seems to be well broken in, 8 months of semi daily smoking, until now I blamed the gurgle on moist tobacco. Anybody have any idea whats going on? Also if you want dry tobacco, I have found the air conditioner in my car sucks the moisture out. 8 hours ago this flake was moist as, well, a very moist flake. I could have rubbed it to dust.
