    Call me crazy, but fewer things in life are as awesome as Carter Hall in a cob. What is your favorite tobacco to smoke in a cob?

    Agree with CH, and Walnut works very well too.

    Hang guys I always thought the only tobacco you can smoke in a cob is CH. I am sure I saw this in the pipe smoking rule book,it also says if you put any other tobacco in a cob you will go straight to hell without passing go and collecting the $200.00.

    Burley in general, just seems to taste better in a cob. I don't know why, but I've tested it. Killer cob combo's-

    Mac Baren Golden Extra
    Esoterica Stonehaven
    Peter Stokkebye Cube Cut
    Solani Aged Burley Flake (did I say that already?)
    Uhle's Blend 00

    And my favorite Burley parfait: Solani ABF folded & stuffed in the bottom of a MM CG with Carter Hall on top. :bing:

    Glp Cumberland. That 7yr aged burley just sings a glorious song in a cob!

    They sell it in pouches in large grocery stores. Or offer to trade something for a sample in the trading area.

    FYI volume 1,chapter 36,paragraph 12,section 13,subsection C, line 7 then see the footnote, that should explain why one should only smoke CH in a cob.Hope this clarifies everything. If you are still confused check volume 2 its in there somewhere.
