Purging should be added to the sticky on smoking technique.

I second this. Doesn't need it's own sticky.

I'm surprised how many people havent heard of this...

I wonder if the people that havent heard of this are fairly new to cigars. I've been enjoying them for about 5 years and I just thought this was a "known"...

I almost always purge, but flame purge at night cuz it looks cool. Once I singed my eyebrows, so be careful when purging a full bodied stick when its in the last 3rd!

The things you learn here...

After watching the David "Doc Stogie" Diaz tutorial on YouTube, I learned very quickly how to do both this technique and retrohaling, both of which have greatly improved my cigar smoking experience.

I love the interwebs.

Glad you looked; saved me the trouble, as I was thinking the same thing. Tobacco leaves, like lots of Carbon-based substances, will have some volatile organic compounds in it. Another thing that would be present in burning of tobacco leaves, like many other Carbon compounds, is Carbon Monoxide, which IS highly flammable. In the burning of a cigar, combustion of the leaves can be "incomplete", for lack of a better description, and instead of making just Carbon Dioxide from leaf combustion, some Carbon Monoxide is formed also. This flammable compound could build in the stogie also. Purge it out of the stick with an open flame and you will see what is being discussed. I would not think so with ammonia alone.

Also would not think purging would cool the torch-lit end of a cigar, as one member posted. You are forcefully adding air to embers; it will only help combustion and heat up more. Try it on a larger scale by using a leaf blower to help you get a brush fire going, if you're not having much luck; it WILL fan those embers into flame.

I did this tonight with a little ACID wafe (It's all I had available)....that tiny little thing made a fire ball for 8-10 seconds. I was quite suprised as I expected maybe 1 or 2 seconds at the most.

Yea I've purged in the past, but only for like 2 seconds and I never thought it helped. I guess this is why

I know! who comments on a thread 10 years old but i was gonna do my own thread about this subject until i found it here. I just did this for the first time and was impressed with the results. Now, does every cigar need this? No. but it helped the cigar i'm smoking kill that ammonia taste and it'll be a tool i use going forwards now. Anyways, I was just excited by the results today. God bless you all!
