There is only one place within 50 miles of me that seems to sell Virginias. Everyone always has aromatic blends, but they aren't my thing. Anyways, he had a bulk jar of Virginia. Hey, it was $2.29/ounce. I picked 4oz up. I was looking for something to smoke during the day, to save my good stuff for more relaxed times. This tobacco smokes way too hot, burning my tongue and making me unable to hold the bowl of my pipe. There was also not much flavor, and coupling that with a hot bowl and burnt tongue, also no enjoyment. I looked online to see why my tobacco was doing this. Seems everyone was saying the dryer to tobacco, the hotter it smokes. I dumped my dry, crumbly, and brittle tobacco into a ceramic bowl. I let the kitchen faucet run water til it was as hot as it would get. After soaking a paper towl with the hot water, squeezing out the excess, i laid it over the bowl and put saran wrap over top. I then put a rubber band around the edge, just to make sure the saran wrap and paper towl stayed on (damn cats). This was done at about 10:00pm. The next morning at around 8:30am, I noticed the paper towl completely dry. I took the rubber band, saran wrap, and paper towl off the bowl instantly giving me a huge waft of sweet virginia smell. I felt and squeezed the tobacco--perfect! It stuck together, slowly expanding and falling apart. I loaded my pipe and went to the porch. Wow, what a difference. A nice cool smoke with much more Virginia sweet flavor. My pipe only gets slightly warm now. What a great reward! I am so happy it worked. Just thought I'd share my tip and experience with you all. While I slept, I changed an almost worthless tobacco into something worth buying!
