Re: New Smoker! sOME tips?
I would Def. suggest getting some Al Fakher. Also, try a small MYA or a medium sized Egyptian to start out with... as much as I hate them, I can't deny that they are a good new smoker's pipe... as far as the ice torrent goes... I question even having cold water in my base, as ti definitely has a negative effect on the flavor, although the smoke is a little cooler. If you want cool (feeling) smoke, might I suggest AF Mint? IMO, the most delicious flavor of any brand I have tried... of all time.
