I've received a gift of some tobacco and my very first cobs. I have had only one briar before and as I said it was cracked, I had an ok time keeping that pipe lit but this new cob seems to be a challenge. I do not know if it has anything to do with the breeze or cold outdoors or the large size of the bowl but I have a feeling if I puff too much to get it to a reasonable burn it's going to have some bite. Another friend is sending me some smaller briars with smaller bowls with I feel will be much easier to work with but I want to get good at mastering the large cob as well. Tips?
