    Hi Brian,
    Secondary sub-brand pipes are a good way for new pipe smokers to start without investing a lot of $$. The book “Who Made that Pipe” is a good source to check out some of the older sub-brands.

    Missouri Meerschaum is an old established name in America. It was interesting to hear how the pipe production is tied to the farming and was at the whim of the weather, etc. Can’t wait to try the new tobacco at Chicago.

    Interesting music selection.

    Ha Ha, Pipe smoking dating service. Don’t think I need to use one. It may be a good idea.

    Good one.

    Brian, excellent info on sub-brand pipe Marques . Learned a lot. Also good interview with the GM of Missouri Meerschaum Pipes. Extremely interesting process from planting to tamping. This entire show gives the wannabe pipe smoker, and the new pipe smoker, avenues to follow to get started or continue at a modest cost. As usual, I totally enjoyed it………the first and the SECOND TIME.
    NOW FELLOW LISTENERS LETS GET ON EBAY…..GO TO PIPESTUD’s STORE AND BID ON THE PRODUCTS TO SUPPORT JUVENILE DIABETES RESEARCH …….ITS TIME TO FIND THE CURE!!
    Be well, God Bless,

    Great broadcast! As a conformed corn cob pipe smoker, I especially enjoyed the interview with my good friend Phil Morgan of Missouri Meerschaum…best pipes in the world! I will be looking forward to trying the Missouri Meerschaum-label pipe tobaccos when they are available!

    Once again it is great to meet the nice people behind the famous brand. I have always had a corn cob pipe in my rotation, and always will. They are especially great to smoke when it is hot and humid outside because they “breathe” and dry so well. Also, when working on projects or repairs where I don’t want to dent or damage the finish on my briars. They are a terrific “fishing pipe”- I don’t worry about dropping my pipe in the water. Heck, they are great anytime!

    Please let us know when the special Missouri Meerschaum pipe tobaccos are available. I can’t wait to try them- with blending by Russ they should be a hit.

    Great show as always- thank you!

    Brian,

    Can you remind me which episodes you talked about “show etiquette”? I plan to attend the Chicago Pipe Show and have never been to any pipe show so was hoping to re-listen and see what pointers I might pick up before attending.

    As always, enjoy your show and look forward to “meeting” many more pipe folks through your hard work!

    Another fine show. The “Pipe Parts” segment on on sub-brand pipes was really good. I personally prefer the estate pipe route for introducing new comers to the world of pipe buying, but sub-brands and an okay alternative. And you sure can’t argue with the idea of buying a Missouri Meerschaum when looking at low cost pipes.They really do smoke well.

    Scott, some simple etiquette points at a pipe shoe:

    1) Don’t touch anything on a vendor’s table without permission.
    2) Haggling is permitted but don’t be a jerk about it. If the vendor wants more than you want to pay just move on. No need for snide remarks bout the guy being “overpriced” or “Doesn’t know what he is doing”.
    3) Relax and enjoy yourself. Some people walk around as if they are having a testicle removed orally.

    Loved the interview with Phil Morgan. It is clear he is working hard to make Missouri Meerschaum a brand name to be reckoned with. To me his grasp of what it takes to be a farmer is very important. I grew up in farm country and to this day I don’t know why anyone does it. You can bust your butt, do everything right, and still lose everything.

    This episode was beyond amazing. As a huge fan of MM, it was awesome to hear Phil talk about his trade. And the second they started talking about an upcoming line of tobaccos, my brain was going “Please be Russ, please be Russ!” I can only pray they won’t be all aromatics! Keep up the great work on the show!
