1. Clean Your Pipe - It’s very important to make sure your pipe is gratis of any preceding ashes or concentration for a preceding smoke. Run a pipe cleaner through the stalk and then blow on the stem to make sure nothing is blocking the air passageway to the bowl. I would extremely propose you turn the bowl away from your face otherwise you’ll end up with a face occupied of dottle (ashes and unburned tobacco).
2. Prepare the Tobacco - take away the estimated amount of tobacco you’ll need to fill the bowl and place it on a napkin. Make certain the tobacco is gratis of any clumps and that the dampness height of the tobacco isn’t to wet. If it is let it sit out for a couple of notes while you take in the clean air of the evening.
