    Hey all, so I have a question for all the experienced members. What is the best way to pack a bowl in your opinion. Perhaps you could walk myself and other new members through the process in a step by step. All I am doing right now to pack a bowl is I just put it in pack it down and repeat until it is full or at where I want it. But I would like to know your process as well, this is just so I can try some other packing methods to try and eliminate the bite.

    You could check these http://pipesmagazine.com/python/pipe-smoking/tobacco-pipe-packing-methods/

    I guess I just stuff the tobacco in the pipe without even thinking at times.

    No problem -- it can be intimidating at first as there are a bezillion methods and thousands of different tobacco blends and a ton of different pipe styles and ... OMG I've a headache already

    Just take your time Read everything you can about it. Watch some of the dozen videos on You Tube. Take notes even. Do some trial runs of this one, or that. Practice.

    The more you put into it, the more you get out of it. The best method is what works best for you.

    So get busy and let us know how you make out

    I'm no veteran pipe smoker, but there's also some great tutorials on YouTube that you might be interested in searching for!

    There is a ton of information in the left-hand column of the Forum Pages...
    Just scroll down and just below the site sponsors are the "Featured Articles."
    Nothing but great stuff there.

    One thing to remember is that there should be some resistance when you check the draw, like sipping through a straw. Many new people pack too lightly and the pipe will go out a lot and will smoke hot.

    thesmokingbrony,

    I'm not an experienced pipe smoker so I bookmarked a few youtube videos into a playlist so I could easily refer back to them. Funny enough, most of them are by pipesmagazine... It's much easier to see these methods than just read about them. I tend to stick with the 2 step method and Bob method. Nothing helps like practice.... Enjoy...
