Aromatic Dutch Slices in a Peterson Shannon 999
More Anniversary Kake this morning.
Normally I don't start my day with latakia, but Sextant in my Weber Picadilly is hitting the spot. I only had a chance to smoke about a third of the bowl on the way home from dropping my daughter off at daycare. Now I'm selecting some photos of my daughter to print and frame for last-minute gifts and then down to the Strip District (historic produce/meat/fish market district) to put together a basket of Italian sausages, cheeses and that sort of thing for my dad. Then to the liquor store! And a few other stops along the way. I've got a lot of my own work to do today too. Yesterday I felt overwhelmed by today, but right now I'm raring to go.
I'll bring extra Sextant to keep me going!
Merry Christmas eve eve, pipe smokers!
Smoking some Irish flake in my larsen with some coffee at my side prepping for an easy day at work. Today is the day of the Christmas party. My duty is to pick up the food later. Once I return I ca start into the case of beer that I will grab on that same trip. Hope everyone has a great Monday.
What about using a VERY THIN coating of just regular honey to coat the inside of the cob before you smoke it for the first time? I do this with all my new briar pipes before I smoke them, but have never tried it with a cob. What are you thoughts?
Oh to be 25 again and know what I know now...I'd probably be dead before I hit 30. With a permanent grin.
Morning folks, still raining but I can turn the A/C off. Cranberry/orange bread toasted and slathered with peanut butter (chunky).
Schippers in a cob to start the day ... think I'll take in a movie. American Hustle!
A belated happy birthday to JWG!
Seems like it's about to get cool finally. Still up in the low 70's for now, but I can feel the wind cooling down.
I'm starting my day like yesterday, with ODF in the Basil Meadows and plenty of coffee.
It's a blend of two tobaccos I mixed from our local shop, very smooth and a slight sweet aftertaste.
First smoke of the day is some sherlock holmes in a peterson plato. Really enjoying it
Haven't been smoking as much as i'd like. Ive been on vacation for 20 days now, and have been sick for 16 of them.
So over it, cant wait to fly back home.
Thankfully a pipe seems to soothe the sick and grumpy
well my better half left the better half of a pot of coffee in the pot this morning...its been 3 weeks since ive been off coffee but what the heck its the holiday season...mac b scottish blend in the dublin, hopefully i finish it before this coffee makes me poop.
After a good lunch (i cooked with my son), smoking on the balcony with some Motzek #7 (again) in Winslow Crown, Cidre on the side. Sun's still shinig ^^
coffee makes ya poop??
I think its caffeine.. I have the same thing with a morning Mt Dew.
Morning all. CH in the bent Dip. , Coffee.
Just honey works too - no doubt
My mixture is about 3/4 JackDaniels Honey Whiskey 1/4 Honey
it makes the honey a little thinner and soaks into the grain a little better than just honey by itself
on a new cob and on hardwood pipes too it does raise the grain a little which is alright because that burns off the first couple smokes and chars nicely into a carbon base to start the cake process
it don't seem to raise much of the grain on a briar pipe but does make the honey soak in better
here is a picture of my new pear wood oyster pipe after about 4or5 bowls
off to good start
Back on subject....
loading up a bowl of my wintertime blend in the above pipe
Merry Christmas PSFer's
Raining hard here and still rather Spring like, 59 (F).
Starting off with Sir Walter Raleigh in an MM Pride straight Along with a mug of coffee of course.
Oh yeah forgot to mention we gained 0 degrees
still 12 outside
I need to go to Florida !!!
I like this post for the smoke and the movie, but that bread and chunky peanut butter sounds appalling!
Yes you do.
