    I know folks say you can't ghost a corn cob ...

    But I'd swear I could taste a bit of Walnut while I was smoking Cherry Blend last night.

    And the other day I was smoking Carter Hall and I thought I was getting hints of RLP-6.

    So is it possible to ghost a corn cob at all?

    Even glass ghosts. Cobs do but don't have the property of holding them as readily/strongly as briars do.

    Yeah, you can ghost a cob. But in my experience you can mix it up as much as you want and not have major problems. First smoke after the last, you may taste the last like you would in a semi-seasoned briar. Next smoke, it will be virtually unnoticible. Third smoke, and it's like the cob was just MADE for that blend.

    Thats just my personal, limited experience.
