Default Drying tobacco

Would one recommend drying wet tobacco (lots of PG) in the oven or not?

Set it at about 150-200, put it on a wax paper-lined cookie sheet and check it peridically?

I personally would not. I would leave the tin open, and maybe put it in a tupperware container with the lid on (not sealed) with a small container of Damp Rid.

I am by no means an expert. Just brainstorming. I wouldn't try it without someone saying it's okay.

Default Re: Drying tobacco

By heating it, you are fundamentally changing the tobacco. It may be better, it may be worse. +1 for leaving the top off or putting out a bowl's worth some time before you plan to smoke. Lots of folks recommend a lamp for this purpose, but if it's exceptionally wet, and you're exceptionally impatient, your refrigerator has the lowest RH in your house.

Thanks. Seen some boards saying yes, and some no. The problem with leaving it out is that my wife might start likng the smell.

I would find a nice place to lay it out To dry it. I Dry my amount that I use for each day, so everyday I set some in a tin with the lid cracked next to my computer fan for a few hours.

just put a bowls worth on top of some newspaper for about 15-20 min. and you should be ready to go. Newspaper is such crappy paper it will suck the moisture right out.

I am under the rule of thumb that only time u add heat to baccy is when your lighting it, as for container in lid idea you risk drying out whole batch. I am with the few bowl sit out a few minutes method but not on paper , on a tin or something the baccy isn't going to absorb taste wise as well.

Default Re: Drying tobacco

Depending on just how much PG in on the tobacco, it may take considerable time to dry it out enough. I'd spread it all out and check back on it often. Sometimes the tobacco has so much stuff on it it'll never dry.

I've found the bowl style coffee filters work great - give it a couple of hours and you're good to go

Default Re: Drying tobacco

I have "stoved" tobacco in a sealed container, it is a way to change the character of the tobacco.

Do not however dry tobacco by using a stove.

As others have said, if you want to dry it all out, just lay it out (I like to put it on a brown paper bag) and let it dry, checking it often.

Otherwise, I dry out what I need for a pipe, maybe an hour ahead of time.
