    Re: Cigarette casing recipe

    I made this recipe lastnight and changed it up a tad
    ___________________________________________
    1 tbs hershey's original cocoa powder
    8oz purified water (as hot as the tap would get it, I have a Brita purifier hooked up)
    1/4 tsp glycerine
    1 tsp honey
    ___________________________________________

    No chocolate taste when smoking, no honey etc but it sure did make the smoke smooth. I used A 80/20 mix of YTB and green brior (respectively).

    I will definitely add the recipe to my note book of all things tobacco.

    I added all the ingredients into a small mason jar, tightened down the lid and shook vigorously for 2 minutes to mix it thoroughly.

    The end result smells like hot cocoa which did and didn't surprise me.

    If anyone is interested I can bag the mixture up (minus the water) for you guys to try it on your own baccy.

    Correct Smokesahoy, Johnlee, I did probably 2 ounces and used maybe 1/8 of the bottle after 4 or 5 rounds

    OK Got it. Thanks. I've got some burly that's too harsh for me. I think I'll give it a try and see if it mellows out a bit.

    Re: Cigarette casing recipe

    So I finally got around to using chocolate in a casing recipe. Here it is:

    1/2 square unsweetened bakers chocolate
    1 teaspoon maple syrup
    1 1/2 teaspoons honey
    1 oz. dark rum
    1 oz. water

    I grated the chocolate and added the rest of the ingredients. A little gentle heat to mix it all together. Filtered with a coffee filter (takes forever). I used some whole leaf TN90, about 6 leaves. Soaked the leaves in the casing for a day at room temp. Then I layed all the leaves in a stack and put them in a preheated oven. I turned the oven on 350f, let it heat up, turn it off and put the tobacco in on a rack. I let it dry crispy this way. Upon taking it out I spritzed it with some water and put into a closed container to rehydrate it some, overnight. I just shredded it this morning, rolled a cig with just this tobacco. Smooth, little to no throat impact, mellow flavor, can still taste a little burley, no other flavors. I tried another cig, 20% bright leaf 80% cased TN90, I could taste the brightleaf through the cased TN90. I would call the recipe a success

    White rum, eh? From what I remember maple syrup and honey are two different sugars, or was that molasses and honey? I don't remember lol. Smoked a few more cigs of pure cased burley, no harshness, no tongue bite, smooth all the way, light flavor of burley, I'm impressed
