Shake that ash

Apparently, my “shake that ash” technique is not as widely known as I had believed, so here I am writing a post regarding this helpful tip for breaking in a new pipe. The goal for a new pipe, as we know, is developing a fine layer of cake (carbon) on the entire interior of the bowl, including the bottom. It is important to smoke your new pipe all the way to the bottom, even if it tastes assy/ashy at the bottom.

Once you are finished smoking, and all that remains is ash, you’ll want to tamp it down a few more times to break it up into a fine powder. Next, put your thumb on top of the bowl, and unless you have a Boswell Grizzly, you should be able to do this. Next, shake that ash all around the bowl to finely coat the entire interior with a fine layer of carbon. Since the bowl is hot and perhaps a tad moist, the carbon should stick to the whole thing and help you build that elusive cake!

I see you baby
