And liked it! :ss

Normally I dry box my CFO's a good week before smoking them, they just seem to smoke and taste better dry. So last Saturday night I pull a CFO out of the humi and it seems a little too squishy (wet). At this point I have about 4 beers in me and figure if I can dry a slice of bread in 20 seconds using a microwave, why not try a .80 cent cigar.

Needless to say the cigar game out steaming hot and really soft. I took it outside and used the cool night air to take a few pre light draws. This cooled the cigar down quick. The cigar dried out considerably and was hard as a rock. Perfect just the way I like my CFO's.

To make a long story short the cigar tasted and burned great! I would never recommend doing this with a more expensive stick, however this seemed to work for me at the moment.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! Just think about it first and then decide you should send it to me and I'll "microwave" it for you and let you know how it is. :D

This works well for pipe tobacco. As long as microwaving the cigar doesn't soften the vegetable glue, I'd see no reason it wouldn't work for a cigar too.

Call me crazy, but I have a thing against microwaves. It's probably because I survived on Hot Pockets during college, BUT...

A microwave heats at very high temperatures. These temperatures may be hot enough to have the tobacco oils reconstitute themselves. It could also cause wet/hot spots that could cause an inconsistant burn.

If I had the option, I'd use a toaster and only give it about 130 degrees for a half hour to an hour or so. The slower you can remove the humidity, the better IMO.

Interesting! I'm always amazed at the ways members either get a cigar to a smokeable state or are crafting something which will only enhance their hobby.


CFO stands for Cigar Factory Outlet?? Made by Oliva? Hmmm, I just might have to try these since I love Oliva.

I dont think they are affiliated with Oliva ... Here is their website www.thecigarfo.com

Check them out they have some great deals and good smokes.

Hmm, oh ok. I googled CFO because I didn't know what they were and this was what it came up with: http://www.discountcigars.org/cigars.asp?parentval=229
