Default Newb here, Just bought my first setup.

I've always enjoyed a good cigar but living in the middle of no where 180 miles from the nearest cigar shop makes it hard to enjoy a GOOD cigar.

SO, with that said, I decided to invest in a humidor so I can have my own stock pile.

Here's my setup. Art Deca 60 cigar humidor $119.00


Heartfelt beads


and a digital Don Salvatore Hygrometer to replace the one it came with.


Pretty excited here people.

Nice set-up!

There is only one problem. If you hang out here with all of us sickos for any amount of time, you will fill it and need another in a month. Probably less.

Do you guys think I should silicone the glass before I season it or just leave it?

Up to you. I would be more concerned with the Analog Hygrometer that came with it. Make sure you goop the crap outta that thing with silicone and stick it back in there nice and tight.

Then Scott (shilala) showed in a thread (Here) that you can successfully leak test with water buy filling up the humidor with distilled water to check for leaks. That's probably fool proof.

But if you're a handyman, the old fashioned strip it apart and seal it up good method should work.

I bought that digital hygrometer to replace it............

As for the silicone, I was just gonna run a small bead on the inside or outside, let it dry and call it good.

Could work I suppose if you got a good seal and it gets it's readings from the back of the Hygrometer. But if it reads from the front, it might not work. Most people just leave the stock one in and set the Digital one on top so you can see it thru the glass.

Yep! And maybe go ahead and keep an eye out for a good deal on an Igloo chest cooler!

This is a replacement for the analog ones, just pops in place of it.

Don't get too bent out of shape about sealing it up right now. Sometimes the units have no leaks or very very small leaks. And if you don't mind your RH being down 1-2% then it might not be an issue for you.

Try out the Newbie Sampler Trade. Trade a couple sticks you like and you'll find new favorites in the sticks that are sent to you.

Also if you liked the Kuba Kuba try the Blondie.

So the "experienced" people send you back cigars based on what you sent them in attempt to show you different cigars that would be comparable to what you sent?

Understanding correctly?

The newbie sampler trade in a nutshell

You send some sticks you enjoy. You get back a bunch of sticks that te person you sent to loves and you get to figure out what you really like!!! You'll love it! It really gets you into the community here.

Make sure you read ALL of the rules on the first page of the thread and the other stickies you have access to here. They set the foundation to a great future here!

Enjoy bro!
