Step 5. Use a knife to carve a bowl. It helps to smooth it out with your finger at the end.
Step 6. Use a skewer (or screwdriver, or straighten out a hanger, or whatever) to make a hole through the apple slice. Be careful to line it up properly. It should connect at the bottom of the bowl.
Step 7: You may want to dry out the bowl with a paper towel (or napkin, or your shirt, or whatever) before you pack it. The keeps your bud from getting too wet. Any additional moisture usually dries up from the heat. Some people use tin foil (or sockets, or whatever), but I would advise against that. Just keep it all natural.
That’s it!! Pack it and enjoy. This method is great because you can cut up the rest of the apple, and have a snack while you smoke. When you’re done smoking you can toss your pipe directly in the compost pile (or woods, or whatever). These are typically good for a few smoke sessions. It will last longer if you put it in the refrigerator between smoke sessions.
