    The smallest size canning jar goes to 4oz (of what's commercially available for canning) BUT if you needed to go even smaller (your preference) baby food jars or jars that seal well and don't "flavor" the tobacco heavily are ideal. Since baby food generally is not spiced much at all, the lids are usually "ghost" free. Another good example would be the tiny jars that jams, jellies, and preserves come in (the hotel size).

    All large enough to keep a small amount of cherished toby you are savoring, only have a small amount (left), and don't want to take up the space. Just a suggestion of course.

    Good advice. I'm always left with a few odds and ends that I just dump in a 'slop jar'. While this makes for some interesting and surprising smokes, it also leads to smokes that don't make any sense and end up being "muddy" for lack of a better word.

    I'm not going out of my way to buy any baby food but I will keep my eyes peeled around the house for small, airtight containers instead of just mixing up the leftovers.

    Thanks.
