Approx. 15 in competition. I finished 2nd with a time of 1 hour 20 minutes. Winner took it with 1 hour 22 minutes. 2nd place was a nice 3 Pipe MacBaren ashtray with cork knocker.

For everybody it’s different. One factor is it was a flake tobacco, the pipe I picked was narrow chambered with thick walls and third, candence. I’ve come in 1st, 2nd, 3rd and points in between in 6-7 attempts.

However, I did smoke it hot enough to put a dark spot on the bottom of the pipe. Guess that’s the price you pay and risk you take. Thankfully it was not an expensive pipe.

Mechanic, everyone gets the same amount of the same tobacco. Usually 2 matches to light in one minute, no additional delights. Then it’s a marathon. Slow and steady. Some competitions supply a pipe, some don’t.

Mechanic ...thus the competitive nature of the competition. My strategy is to not be the first person to go out. I tend to sweat and stir up until the first person has gone out, and then I relax and just enjoy myself knowing that at least I wouldn't be the worst smoker at the event, ha ha.

We had fun. Congratulations Jason. I came in 4th. Won a tobacco pouch ( plastic bag the tobacco came in)& a box of matches .:-D Always win useful items ! Didn't pull the trigger on anything (end of the month ) but have my eye on a couple of Meerschaums if they're still there a pipe club meet.
