Default What do you do with the stems?

So I was doing a batch mix of my favorite sweet melon/watermelon/mint earlier and was using my bowl as a measuring device, and realized how much of a pain the Naklah cut can be. With that said, i was tossing some of the big stems cause they didn't fit in my phunnel so well, but kept some of the smaller ones...what do you guys do with your stems? smoke em? toss em?

I throw them out, even the short but stubby ones. I hated stems in my cigars and I hate stems in my shisha

dont care unless they are really big im not going through the trouble of cutting them. DMCWEBD did an experiment and he smoked only stems, and i believe he said it was better then the real deal. soo from then on i didnt toss stems.

Smoke 'em. If they're really big, just break them up and mix them in with the rest of the shisha.

I usually just throw them at the bottom of the bowl as filler, I don't put stems on top of perfectly good leaf.

I don't understand why people make a big deal about stems. I've not noticed that they affect the flavor at all.

For what it's worth, I'll pick out any trees that are big enough to screw up my pack. Other then that I just smoke it all.

I collect all my stems and put then in a ziploc. When I've got maybe a kilo or two of stems I put them all in a big *** with water, boil them, and make a tasty stem stew!

I never have problem with stems, unless its starbuzz then you find tree trunks in there. I just throw them out usually.
