• Dear Guest,

    We've been using a forum format called vBulletin for over seven years and the program is no longer being developed, so that means no more updates or security patches. vBulletin has never been compatible with search engine optimization and it does not support the multitude of various devices most people use to access the internet, so it's time to say goodbye to vBulletin.

    For these reasons we have moved our forum to a new format that will support and encourage growth for the next generation of grower and DIY tobacco users.

    So please post any issues you're having with using the new site.

    As usual, you may login with your old password.

@Muggs : Could you be more explicit ?

Are you talking about color curing ? Did you find a reaaaaaaally fast way of color curing your leaves ? :rolleyes:
Or are you talking about something else ?

I have used a microwave to dry out tobacco. It works really fast. 7 to 10 seconds at a time, pull it out, and stir it to let the steam out, repeat. I have had suspicion that it was somehow changing the tobacco. This is probably something like toasting.

What variety of leaf are you talking about? Is it green? Is it already color-cured?

A microwave excites the water molecules, so I would expect something of an uneven Cavendish effect. Nothing about the process relates to curing.

I just tried this with some "mud cured" leaves off the bottom of my plants (Virginia Gold). They were cured to a uniform light yellow on the ground.

Man it was a good tasting smoke! Im amazed, so much better then any commercial cigarette and my first taste of home grown tobacco! If just microwaved sand lugs are this good I cant wait till I harvest and get a bit of age on my crop. Will defenitely toast a portion of my harvest when its ready as I believe that should get a resemblance to the microwaved stuff, probably better.
