Smile Tips on keep your tobacco from drying out?

Well I've cut back on smoking recently. I only smoke like two cigs a day, but I'm not changing back to filters since I smoke the occasional spliff. Thing is, I'm not running out of tobacco fast enough now so it always dries out. I hear putting bits of apple peel in your pack is good. Not sure though, so do you guys have any tips maybe?

E: keeping*, sorry

Exclamation Re: Tips on keep your tobacco from drying out?

Keep any you're not using for a while in a airtight container to start.
In a fridge can help.

Rather than the old fruit/vegetable trick, which can flavour your tobacco, though not always in a nice way, i prefer to actually wait for it to get dry, then put it in a bowl, covered with a damp towel. Leave this overnight and your tobacco will be perfectly moistened. Worked this one out when i smoked my way through a kilo of duty free American Spirit

Adding fruit peels to your tobacco is going to make it taste like dying fruit.

If you smoke less.

Buy less.

Putting it in the fridge or freezer is just going to continue to fuck with the flavor.

And humidity.

What ever slight odor you have in your fridge.

Will be taken directly by your tobacco.

If you think you will save money by purchasing in bulk.

It's not true if you smoke less.

I got a solution. Boil a cup of water in the microwave, let the thing fill up with steam. Then put in your container of pot/tobacco and close the door and let it sit a little while. After a bit mix the tobacco on bottom around so it all can get exposed to the moisture, then just take it out when it feels good and moist. Works like a charm.

I think that would probablky make it too moist and run the risk of moulding if you aren't a fast smoker.

Does putting orange peel really flavour the tobacco? I have never done it but have been told that this is an effective way of keeping it moist. I think you can also get some little humidifiers things which are designed for the purpose.

Also, avoid keeping your papers in with your tobacco, as this will dry it out much faster...

Yeah the point of that is to just get something ultra-absorbent in there to "soak up all of the unwanted crap" as I like to say. Personally, I use a cork and a slice of bread. They act as a sort of sponge, and keeps dry things dry and wet things wet. You can use the same method for just about any food, I know that bread also keeps baked goods from going stale, but I guess that must have something to do with the yeast?

Just buy golden virginia. It uses a zipbag to keep the tabacco moist.

Stick it in a glass jar with a bail closure, pipe smokers keep tobacco for years using bail-top Kilner jars.

Even the zip lock bags dry it out, I buy the bulk bag though. I have heard of people using apple peels, but personally i wouldn't want that decomposing in my bag of tobacco.

The best solution is to set yourself a small amount for a few days and vacuum seal the bulk of it.
Some people like to put it in the freezer, with my own experiences, once you take it out of the freezer it drys out twice as fast, I just throw mine up in the kitchen cabinet and it holds really nice.

I pit mine in a ziplock baggy and toss in a fresh banana peel every three to four days. It not only keeps my tobacco nice and moist but it gives it a smoother sweeter flavor. I have tried apple wedges but they don't seem to offer as must hydration as the banana peels even thought it does add a nice flavor.
