I got a crazy idea the other day. I think it may have been from a post that I read somewhere...

Anyway, I was jaring up a batch of Stonehaven thinking that I would really love a bowl, but the darn stuff was just too wet.

So, I popped a flake in the microwave for ten seconds just to see what would happen.

The flake came out warm (obviously) and, most importantly, dry! affraid

That was the best bowl of Stonehaven I have ever smoked.

Anyone else ever tried this or am I just way behind the curve?

I have done it a few times. No longer than 10 sec but usually 5-6

I know a few other guys that do it.

I usually just let my stuff air out for a bit. Or I pack a bowl at night and smoke it the next morning.

I guess the microwave gives you pretty good control over how dry you want a blend... You could just make a note of how much tobacco for how long yields the desired results... study

Sorry George.

I wasn't trying to steal your thunder. pirat


Your method involves efficient heat recovery whereas mine is wasteful (and quicker Laughing )

Microwave drying has been talked about before. I'm kind of into going old school... ashtray filled with bacca, or a piece of 1/4-folded paper, and wait. Either wind or a space heater (in winter) does the job. *shrug* There's something about the premature heating of the 'bacca that makes me think the volatile taste goodness might be affected, so no nuker for me, either.

Cool
