I'm looking to understand the whys of cOB smokers.

If I made a pipe with a Briar bowl... and I glued in a wooden stem and I put putty in the bottom of the bowl.. and if I used a terrible, cheap bit.. and if the pipe tasted like epoxy and corn as you smoked it... who would enjoy such a pipe?

just because you had a bad experience does not mean we all have.

I recall having 2 bad cobs. I threw them away. At $5 each it's no big deal. There are many many bad briar pipes and guys are out lots of money for them. I had one to throw away and had to fix a few.

Fact is cob smokes cooler and dryer, with out having to use special puffing techniques to keep from burning yer tongue or making the smoke taste bad.

the link is bad advice. when a guy starts pipe smoking everyone tells him to get a cob and captain black. It is bad advice.

a beginner should never smoke a cob, and a beginner should never smoke a goopy aromatic.

Zed, with all due respect, nobody should EVER smoke a cOB or an aROMATIC.

An amateur pipe smoker always, ALWAYS, will gravitate towards aromatics and cobs?

Why?
Seriously?

cobs are easy to learn on.

Aromatics taste good to beginners.

Both are cheap and readily available.

It makes these an obvious first step for most beginners.

Even guys who say -- "That's a cheap, ugly cob. If I like this hobby, I'm gonna get a pretty wooden pipe as soon as possible."

It just makes sense to spend $5 and check out the hobby, before dropping $30 for that Dr. Grabow.

Del, you said that when you were in college you burnt your tongue on crappy aromatics in a cOB and then quit.

A simple yes or no would do just fine.

I'll assume you meant to say "no".

With that said, do you think that I am a beginner pipe smoker?
