I like my one and only Pete. It can gurgle but that’s only if the tobacco is wet or ambient humidity is high. I also think that because it’s a bent pipe there is a void in the mortise that causes whatever moisture is in the smoke to condense. It’s a military mount so I just break it down, blow out the stem and wipe out the mortise and it’s back to a gurgle free smoke. I figure if it condenses moisture then that just means a dryer smoke even if I don’t dry out my tobac all the way.
