Boxcar??

Can someone explain what this is? I see it being referenced in the forum as a way to snuff, but am clueless other than I think it has to do with your thumbnail.

    Wrap your index finger around the tip of your thumb so that it forms a basin. Pour snuff in this fingery receptacle, bring up to your nostril and sniff. This works well for larger portions. Choo-choo!

  • Aaaaahhhh.... Thanks! That about sums it up!
  • That does seem like a lot. I'll have to work my way up to that amount. Baby steps....
  • I use the boxcar method all the time...

    Pluses:
    It allows you to get a lot more snuff in a single pinch.
    It works well if you are outside in the wind.

    Minus:
    It only works as well as the free flow of air into your nostril.
    If you are congested, the effeciency drops dramatically.

  • Using the locomotive technique (plastic straw) after several drinks will make the horn blow louder and possibly make you jump out of you boots.

    I couldn't snuff toasts or scotches without sneezing and tearing up until i learned about the boxcar (a recent development). now for some reason I can snuff HDT without it hitting my throat. I think its because I can really regulate how much air i'm letting in through my fingers.

    I am not sure I understand @chefdaniel. Does that mean that you like to take it in the caboose? I am referring to snuff, of course.

  • Pros - increased strength due to better distribution in nose (less clumping, more of a "snuff-mist" effect); altered scent due to same effect

    Cons - messy, harder to control

  • boxcar
  • Damn I thought my boxcars were big!
