You might have better luck than I, Turkish/Orientals are usually cured by hanging them in the sun, I can't do that in MA, it's just asking for trouble. I'm not sure how much difference it would make to flue cure them, but I think a lot of the mildness and flavor in that type of tobacco comes from the exposure to sun.

I wouldn't trust Wikipedia for everything, most US brands use mostly White Burley with other varieties blended in to taste.
