    Hey, I have a bag a of tobacco seeds. While I am pretty confidant of growing, harvesting, curing, and fermenting. My only concern is cutting up the tobacco so that can be classified as pipe tobacco. So if anybody knows as to how cut the tobacco to the specifics of pipe tobacco? If so it will be greatly be appreciated.

    korkman... I grow burley.
    For my use and friends I bought a small food processor called NINJA that works well for me.
    Remove the stems and large veins (this is as simple as pulling them out), knife cut the tobacco into small chunks, and feed it to the NINJA.
    This is the first food processor that didn't break. I also make burley cake with a homemade press..
    For what its worth ted
