General Observations

Post by sweetandsour » Mon Jan 08, 2018 11:58 am

DGT is much more effective in warm weather. Warmer than in the 50s at least. I'm sure there's other factors, but the colder temps here lately has definitely seemed to be a main factor.

Got it, but I was just a lieutenant. Now I'm married. I have no rank at all.

naw.

I haven't tested this. I don't usually to DGT unless pipe is sitting in the truck waiting for me to get done and relight for the ride home. I don't think that counts.

I DGT almost every day. Sometimes it's intentional, sometimes it's not. It's hard to find time lately to smoke a whole bowl at once, so I'm frequently picking up previously smoked pipes and relighting. I have not noticed a difference between cold weather and warm.

But you're azalea is blooming....

I find nothing hits the spot, fresh or dgt'd, if it's damnably cold. I noticed little diminution in flavor in burley or virginias. Periques get stronger. Aromatics get flat.

YMMV.

I like English in the cold. The still quiet cold of the non-damnable variety. Where you can walk w. dogs or what have you.

MM isn't varying too much from your noted experience. But particularly I've noticed that I'm just dumping out unfinished bowls lately.

Sort of the same here. I've been packing more half or third pipes.

Sorry S&S.
I got drawn into the silliness.

Maybe we can get it back on track.

I hadn't observed any effect of temperature on DGT, but I am usually able to smoke my bowls to the bottom and my limited experience is likely the reason.
