2nd UPCA FAST Smoke Competition

2nd UPCA FAST Pipe Smoking Contest

Friday, 4/28/23  9:30 pm
Smoking Tent
Lincolnshire Marriott, Linconshire IL

1st Fast SmokeIf our slow smoke contest is too boring for you, let's see how FAST you can smoke a pipe. UPCA is holding its first FAST SMOKE contest.

Everyone get the same pipe and tobacco, just like our slow smoke, but the first one out it the winner!   
Use as many matches (or a blowtorch) as you want. If you go out with unburnt tobacco, you must refill your pipe and light up again.

The Pipe is a Bent Rob Roy Natural from  Missouri Meerschaum.


The Tobacco is Sutliff Tobacco's Molto Dolce.


Contestants may bring their own source of ignition in addition to matches provided and can use their own tamper.
