Yes! I have one Meer lined bowl (I have a dozen Falcon bowls in all) and it has given a no-fuss, dry smoke each time. I noticed a slight aroma from the Meerschaum when first smoking it, but it wore off, so I can only assume that it was an initial reaction to the heat.
On balance, I’d say go for it. I love Falcons anyway, so I may be a touch biased!

I also have Falcons including the international and Alco.
They're so easy to maintain and smoke that they are a main part of my pipe smoking.
The great thing to is you can get 2 or 3 bowls more if you like and rotate between them.
For work I have three bowls normally filled with tobacco so when one is fully smoked ill wipe it out with tissue and the humidor where it sits too then pop another full bowl on and I'm ready to go again.
Falcons and Alcos I can highly recommend, and other than being careful to screw and unscrew the bowls as you don't want a cross thread, they're very robust.
