Hello fellow pipe smokers. I noticed today when smoking Orlik Golden Slice (thanks Fbones24) for the first time in my pipe that it was snapping, crackling and popping. Granted I haven't had the longest of pipe smoking careers, but I have not experienced this before. Is it just the tobacco, or is there another cause, any cause for concern? Otherwise it smoked very nice, a pretty cool and long smoke. Very enjoyable. At first I thought I might be burning through the briar, but the bowl remained luke warm to the touch throughout.
