Burning Questions

I bought my friend a pipe last night. The gift was well received but we soon realized that neither of us knew the proper methods used in pipe-smoking. The totality of what we knew was weaned from smoking dope, but these skills proved ineffective. Tobacco and cannabis pack, light, and smolder very differently.

Could anyone here please lend me some advice? (I'll give it back later, I promise)

find a smoke shop in the area that sells pipe tobacco and ask there.

Actually, I do have a little sled that he can go in if he wants to.

It makes him do this:
