Removed, sorry again..
I had a Pete that tasted like cat piss (smells). Could not get the scent or taste out until I really sanded the inner bowl out quite a bit.... Good luck.... ( I think a cat did piss in it). I took a dremel with cylinder type sander and reamed her......
Send me all your Jobeys I am running out of firewood.
I'd give it a good (but carefull) sanding in the bowl and remove any stinger etc, worst case try a different stem perhaps.....
Gotta be the bowl, shank or stem. I would put the stem in an Oxyclean soak, which then will require a re-polish, and give the bowl a sea salt/Rum soak. That should address any possible problems in the three key areas. If that doesn't change anything then it is probably a complete lost cause.
I have a Jobey that is a great smoke, with good flavor, so not sure it is necessarily associated with the brand.
