    I smoke anything and everything through my clays. A clay is the proving ground for any new blend. And yes, placing them in a fire will clean them right out. The only downsides are: 1.) They are easily broken. 2.) The stem will naturally want to stick to your lips; especially if you are a clencher. Coat the tip with a bit of white beeswax for a more comfortable smoke. 3.) They tend to burn very hot. Be sure to sip slowly.
    As to the matter of what to smoke? Why, Kickin' Chicken, of course!

    One of the McClelland 221B series. Probably a bit one dimensional for the TR crowd but very 18th/19th century.
