"Brule-gueule" pipes are by definition short pipes with a very short stem. A short pipe means that the smoke will not have time to cool down much and will therefore arrive hot in the mouth. It is therefore imperative to smoke these pipes calmly, not to stuff the tobacco too much so as not to have to pull too hard. Once these precautions have been taken, they will not burn anything at all and will have the advantage of being easy to carry because of their small size. They will also be very practical for smokers who work and have their hands full.
