Is anyone putting together a "Pipes, Tobacco, and How to Use Them Tutorial" (Jim, jwhite, or Ouch perhaps)?

I don't have a pipe, but I'd like to read some condensed information about pipe tobacco and how to properly use a pipe.

A breakdown of tobacco types and treatments (processing, flavoring, etc.) would be helpful. Where to purchase pipes and tobacco online would also be great.

I wouldn't mind working out something like this at some point if there was any clear idea on exactly what people want beyond just learning how to load a pipe. Otherwise, I'll leave it to someone more experienced.
 
A tutorial on how to load a pipe would be good. :thumbup1:

Yes. How to load, clean, break in a new pipe properly (without damaging it) and some maintenance/use advice (dos and don'ts) would be helpful. Also, some info on the basic types of pipe tobacco and perhaps some good examples (brand names) of each.

I think I could pull together something like this at some point.:001_smile

Then, again, you might not. There are some curmudgeons and braggards on there, but it won't take the discerning gentleman long to learn who should just be ignored. There's a fabulous wealth of information there, if you can strain out the occasional olive pit in your martini. :001_tongu

Hey, I used to be on there, so, well, umm, never mind. :w00t:
