I do know how to dry out tobacco and prepare it for smoking but i don't have the patience. i want to just pick up a pipe and some tobacco and put it together with some fire and enjoy without waiting 15, 30, 60 minutes for it to be easily lit and kept alight.

I find Condor Long Cut is usually good to go straight from the Condor moment of opening. St. Bruno not so much. +1 on the US OTCs, PA, SWR SWRa, CH can all be procured packed and puffed in quick succession. Some of the less heavier cased Pete aros are difficult to moisten but also difficult to get drier, they're just right when opened.

Any American OTC tobacco will do that easily, but I'm sure there are many others, you Brits seem to have designed your OTC tobacco to make it more difficult, almost like child-proof lighters. :)
only tried 2 OTCs and one was pretty good in this area(Clan) and the other is less than stellar(St. Bruno).

Well, depending on your budget, you can get samples of many American OTCs shipped from 4Noggins.com, maybe you'll find something you like. But there are many blends available that are pretty no nonsense in terms of preparation, the trouble is figuring out which one you want.

I was gonna say, I seem to recall being able to smoke just about everything right out of the pouch, with maybe a few minor exceptions. I don't have any issues with needing to dry out tobacco generally.

I've been meaning to try some Condor for a while, this is a push in the right direction. also been thinking of getting some of the Peterson baccys I used to love so much - Sweet Killarney and Irish Whisky stood out for me.

I guess it can maybe change the flavor some say,but instead of waiting for things to dry out I just stick it in the microwave.1792 ready to smoke in 8 seconds.Tastes fine to me.I've had no problems with any of the Dunhill mixes. McClelland mixes also seem ready to go...

I do enjoy Condor on occasion, but I can manage to pack a bowl of CH, Granger or the like while driving, and light it up easily, I don't have that option with the Condor, that I save for more deliberate smoking enjoyment. I've had pretty good luck with most of the Peterson blends too, I'm the kind of guy that keeps it simple with OTCs during the week, and smoke the blends and flakes that require preparation on the weekends.

dinner and dried tobacco all in one amazing piece of equipment! seriously though, i might try this on the FVF I've had for a few months. I've actually had some moisture issues with Dunhill London Mix, don't know if i got extra free water or if it's just wetter than the others.

That's the way to go for FVF. Capt turned me on to that method. It's perfect. 8 seconds and it smokes like a dream. No more, no less.

I have the same impatient problem as you, which is my jars full of FVF last forever... Captain Black, any OTC, Sutliffe stuff all smokes well right out of the container. You can also let your jar/container dry to the perfect smoking moisture, then seal it back up, and it'll be ready to go when you want it.
