Question Pipe Tobacco Storage

Should I store my pipe tobacco in my humidor? I'm keeping it in an old cigar box right now. If I keep it in my humidor, will the aroma affect the cigars? It's in plastic bags, but I can smell it through the bags.

I use Mason jars; they're cheap, widely available, you can label them and they're airtight.

No, the RH of a cigar humidor is too high for PT.

Do NOT put them in your humidor with your cigars.They WILL transfer flavors to your cigars. Mason jars work the best.

I would definitely keep it out of your humidor, unless the humidor is dedicated to pipe tobacco. You will stink up all your cigars.

+1 on the mason jars, they seal well and I picked up a bunch at Goodwill for a nickel a piece.

Mason jars. I have some 'baccy stashed in some plastic "snack baggies" tucked into tupperware. No issues at all.

But the only reason I dont have Mason jars is beacuse I dont have room enough for them, otherwise Mason jars are the way to go.

Tupperware was easier to pack.

Gonna go with most here and second the motion for mason jars. I get the half pint sized ones which seem to hold right around 2 ounces ribbon cut and slightly more in flake form. The are 6$ for a case of 12 around here. Plus they are reusable.

Mason jars are great, I use those ziplock twist containers as well, they stack better and I don't have the space for so many jars. Don't put pipe tobacco in your humi, as others have said it will leave a smell and the humidity is far too high.

Here's a good thread on prepping the jars if you are cellaring.
