So on friday afternoon, I was working outside and having a bowl of escudo in my MM Great Dane. It was rather breezy and the wind seemed to be stoking the fire in my bowl as i couldnt get the tobacco to stop burning so hot. All of a sudden i started to smell something burning other than escudo so I tapped out the bowl and sure enough the side of the bowl was smoldering. I let it cool and all seems fine with the pipe, smoked it this morning, but now I will be cautious of what the wind is doing to my bowl. Just a heads up. lesson learned.
