Does anyone have a resource about how different types of processes are actually done and not just a general idea. Things like how to make cavendish, stove va, hot-press flake, etc... Like if i wanted to make stove VA how would I actually do it? I know the general idea but specifically hot would I go about it?

The most common method for stoving a tobacco is Fred Hanna's 220 for 220 method. Basically, place the sealed tin or jar of tobacco into an oven heated to 220°F for 220 minutes. The process is detailed by Fred in this old ASP thread: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/alt.smokers.pipes/tVsv5v3tT7k

Tried the 220 at 220 on some John Pattons quadruple virgina. I mixed with distilled water to over normal moisture level. It smelling like roasted peanuts. I'll smoke some tomorrow to see if there's a difference. It's a little darker. Not black though. Maybe I'll try some with a lot more water.

I tend to slow roast it in the oven on a cookie sheet, spread as thin as I can, at around 200 degrees. Watching, stirring, light misting with a spray bottle. Sometimes it takes a couple of hours, sometimes more or less, (Perhaps RH is a factor). I also hand chop the leaf rather wide, as it tends to shrink as it roasts. The first few attempts were educational, to say the least.
