    Hi everyone,
    So im doing some DGT today with some Frog Morton on the town. Ive had the tin for a few weeks now and today was the 1st time i opened the tin. I Probably should have let the tin open for a few hours? because I had to re light every 2nd minute and when i wasnt re lighting the smoke was very thin but for a few seconds after a light the smoke was very thick and white then would drop down to a thin smoke and then extinguish.

    So up to now i got half way into the bowl and the ashes are very dusty like and there was no bite what so ever, the smoke was very cool and i had a bit of a cedar smell and i could sometimes taste a bit of a nutty sweetness and no after taste what so ever. Besides the constant relight this was very nice.
    So did you guys have the same problem as me ?

    I wouldn't recommend letting the whole tin air out at once. First of all it will take a while for that to even work, but additionally the stuff in the can, if left unjarred, will dry out on it's own, but this will significantly accelerate the process and do the tobaccos no favors. I would suggest only drying the tobacco you're about to smoke, bowl by bowl. It's slightly more time consuming to do this than just leave the jar open, but I'd rather do that than have to worry about rehydrating the tobacco later.
