What you do is pull off a good size chunk of the brick, soak it, squeeze it, and pull the stems out as detailed above. Instead of throwing it in a bowl, wrap the leaves around the top of your pipe (No bowl attached) like a giant cigar. Use an Ice pick or kebab skewer to run some holes down the middle, than throw some coal on top and you're ready to go.
That sounds a little rough on the lungs. Are you still 'creating a heat screen' at that point? Does the coal still bake the tobacco? or is it just straight up combustin'?
