Well how would you go about setting up a cooler to use as a humidor.

Buy a cooler that seals well (coleman, rubbermaid or the marine coolers)
wash out cooler with soap & water and allow to dry, if it smells like plastic, repeat or leave out in the sun w/ the lid off for a few days
place cigar boxes in cooler
add humidification element/device
close lid
drink beer

You forgot something -- the most important thing -- and have a cigar!


BTW Adam: where to you find a suitable beer in a box? (I know you how disdain using bottles and cans )

That particular humidor is made in China. I have one and it has not done well for me in the past

Just use empty boxes from your local B&M. Usually they are free or maybe a couple of bucks.

Default Re: A Basic Humidor Buying Guide

My brother is going to build me a humidor for my birthday, are there any tips I should impart on him? I told him the inside wood must be Spanish cedar and it HAS to be airtight. What other stuff can I pass along? This will be a birthday present for me (lol grats on me knowing) but I would like to help him where I can, as I know nothing really to tell him.
