Once you have a basic understanding of how a dugout pipe works, you’ll be well on your way to smoking a dugout with the best of them. There are many ways to pack a dugout box but following a formula can help you achieve the best results and the most convenient high.
How Dugouts Work
Dugouts are portable storage boxes that include a one-hitter pipe and storage space for your herb so you can smoke on the go. A one-hitter pipe is typically a metal pipe that looks like a cigarette and is shaped like one, too. Dugout boxes are made to be discreet so it’s best to pack it up before you head out on your next adventure.
Make Using a Box Easier
Before you go out and about, make sure your dugout box is prepped and ready. Grind your herb before you hit the road. A grinder card breaks it down to a fine consistency. Having finer weed gives the best possible smoking experience and makes the one-hitter easier to pack.
Proper Pipe Loading
After grinding your herb, you’ll need to prepare your dugout box. Traditional dugouts have a twist top that reveals the one-hitter and storage area. The chamber that holds your herb is often pretty narrow so its best to funnel your herb over a rolling tray or flat surface. This is so any spillage can easily be gathered and put into the dugout pipe.
You can gently use the one-hitter pipe to poke the herb down into the storage area, but make sure it is not too densely packed in. As you load the one-hitter over and over, the herb will condense itself down even further. Using a poker or scoop will yield better results.
One-Hitter Packing is Key
Using your one-hitter as efficiently as possible is going to make or break your smoking experience. Remove the one-hitter from the dugout box and gently press down into the herb storage side. You want to twist as you do this, as that will help pack the bowl. Forcing it in will result in getting the herb stuck at the bottom. A poker can also assist in getting herb unstuck from the bottom.
Be sure to clean out your pipe and remove any ash or herb for the best results.
