    I just finished making an a pipe out of applewood and no I won't post pics because it looks like something a drunk carpenter made and I can't handle the crap you guys will give me. My therapist has enough to work with already. I a sensitive guy you know. Has anyone else made a pipe out of applewood? Can you taste a difference?

    I prefer apple pies to cherry pies. But for pipes I have zero clue.

    I wonder if it will add sweetness i use apple wood chips when cooking chicken on the grill adds some sweet flavor.

    I read Just Finished Making An Apple Pie and started drooling. The mind sees what the mind wants to see.

    Sorry I said no to pics. I'm too sensitive to take the criticism from all you trolls. I expect I'll smoke 965 to break it in.

    Even after seeing what happens when I get mad at one I'm carving?

    If I told you once I told you a million times, don't exaggerate the power of the Troll.

    Besides, how could it look worse than a cob?

    Now look at what you two have done. You've hurt my feelings terribly. Shame on both of you.

    They make great bonsai pots!

    I love both, they are among my favorite work pipes.

    A pipe adding sweetness is a myth, at least long term. What you hope for its for the pipe to be neutral. Where is that sweetness adder going to come from? Would have to be like guns in a movie where they seem to have an endless supply of bullets.

    I've made a few ugly pipes out of crabapple wood. They taste good,there's a little bit of apple wood smoke taste for the first bowl or two but they're pretty neutral tasting after that. Show us pics!
