Thanks! I hope it breaks in well, as right now it's got a case of the gurgles.
4Noggins Prairie Wind in a large IMP meerschaum. Lemon Zinger tea, just because I haven't had any in a while.
Noticed that I haven't smoked Frog Morton on the Bayou much since Prairie Wind and Painter Hills arrived...
I've been smoking that shape of Peterson for a while. They can be a little wet until broken in. I tried drilling out the stem on one of mine and it did make a small difference.
Vanilla Creme Flake in my $40 ebay poker that's my best smoker
My Kapet 68 (bent brandy) gurgled like mad when I got it. I almost gave up on it. After a handful of smokes it started smoking better...now it only ever begins to threaten to gurgle slightly. Keep smoking it slowly and deliberately, and it may very well surprise you. Partial bowls for a while sure wouldn't hurt. My Kapet isn't my best smoker, but it sure is getting better every time I smoke it, and I suspect it may keep getting better still. I've read elsewhere that others have had similar experiences with Petersons requiring a particularly long break-in period compared to other pipes. Can't think of any reason for it, but hopefully that's the case for you!
Thanks. I'll try for some more partial bowls and see how things go.
Irish Flake in a cob. Overpaid at a shop while visiting a friend, but glad I've gotten to try it. Not bad at all, just not willing to pay $16.99 for it again. I may order some online when this tin is gone.
SWR in my Savinelli Duca Carlo
PA in my pete donegal 68
Troost Aromatic in a MM General.
Orlik Bull's Eye in a smooth meer.
Good morning, Cob Plug in a small 1/2 bent meer, before a run to the B&M to top-up my SG jars, and a pub lunch!......retirement is hard!
McLintock 'Black Magic' in a MM cob.
Stimulus Package in a Ser Jac. Lotsa coffee.
Lane 1-Q in a DG Savoy
Rum&Maple in a westbrook 36s.
Todays choice is Mississippi River in my David Jones stubby poker.
"Haddock" is dead fish or something like that: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Captain_Haddock
Well look at that, it's not too far removed from Captain Earle after all. No wonder you like Ten Russians.
