    What should I smoke in it?
    I know...everything! Right?
    I think I read that Old Ted likes BBF in a clay...
    any more suggestions?
    (BTW it's a 7 inch tavern pipe from Ebay. Looks sweet. looks delicate!!!!)

    I'd say a good Virginia leaf like our fore Fathers smoked in their clays, like McClelland’s Boston 1776.

    Everything. Because all blends smoke differently in a clay from what you're used to. It'll be a good experience.

    For the record, I smoke Dunhill 965 in my churchwarden every Christmas Eve.

    McClellands Deep Hollow, W.O. Larsen 1864, Parklane Red Paramour or even Club House. I would smoke the 1864 in it because I'll smoke that in just about anything! :th1: Yea, 1864 is awesome.

    Maybe it would taste tolerable when unencumbered in a clay.

    I wouldn't know first-hand but I've read you can simply throw them into a really hot fire to get rid of ghosts.

    Never had it or heard of it.
    Just saw that TR gives it 2 stars, but that doesn't mean anything....sometimes. ;)

    I find Orientals sing in a clay, as do Perique and Lat blends. Oh, and VA's. And burleys. Aromatics taste like dog rockets in them, but you can't expect miracles.

    I like rope and shag cuts, possibly due to some notion of tradition, but ribbon, cube, plug and flake are excellent too.

    (Man, have I narrowed it down for you...) :)

    I guess the only sure thing is...

    THE RED WINGS SUCK!!! :beck:
