    Congrats on discovering that "aha" moment. You'll learn over time what works best for you. And sometimes what worked well one time (or many times) can't be replicated. That's the nature of pipe smoking. We're always trying to get that next "aha".

    Oh, and by the way, as others have already said, like what you smoke and smoke what you like. There's absolutely no hard-and-fast rule that says you must smoke the most expensive blends. Some of the most ardent and experienced pipe smokers only smoke OTCs.

    Congrats! Pipe smoking is great. When I'm starting with a new tobacco, I don't pack it in the pipe at all, I just drop it into the pipe until the pipe is full. I think this is called a gravity fill. Then I push the loose tobacco just to the point where it's not spilling over the pipe, and light up. I can tamp and play around with it to find the sweet spot where it stays lit, but not too tight.
