Every evening I fill 6-7 different pipes with several different blends, just waiting for tomorrow. The pipes vary from small to large. The pipe rotation changes constantly. The next day I light one off and enjoy. As the day progresses, I go from one to another. The overnight stay has dried the tobacco out to the point where it lights perfectly, and I continue throughout the day on my quest of enjoyment. This has been my routine for quit a while. It seems like it works for me. I have done this for many years and it works for me.
