@halfdan I knew of slow smoking competitions but I didn’t realise there are fast smoking competitions. Not smoked a clay yet but I will one day ?@Ettrick puffer Fastest time; but I would like to improve my slow smoking times - the most I've ever managed is 24 minutes with a clay pipe of Condor Ready Rubbed. Problem is I puff a bit too hard because I keep thinking it's going to go out and relighting is against the rules!
I think Redcoats would be more impressed by keeping your pipe lit the longest than smoking it the fastest!
About 10-15 minutes is more normal for me as clay pipes burn hot and they have fairly small bowls.
When re-enactment starts again I'd like to see how long I can keep my clay pipe burning...
@Birddog66 Sounds delicious!Afternoon everyone, It seems a good night sleep has healed my tongue and I feel much refreshed. I’m starting the day off with some of the Frankencake I stoved a couple of weeks ago, in the smaller Caveman. Stoving has brought the Chocolate to the fore (SG chocolate Cav blending tobacco, a thick broken flake) and fruited up the Perique, it’s also taken some of the rough edges off. I’ll do a side by side comparison later to fully understand how the stoving process has effected it. Stoving also had the same effect on GH Louisiana Flake, bringing the chocolate forward, something I wasn’t expecting. View attachment 88765
