I have an idea on fire curing. As I read Latakia is fire cured using wood and herbs, is it possible to use herb such as lemongrass? It is abundant in my area and if you ever smell burning lemongrass leaves, you will know that it is wonderful. However, I wouldn't know if it safe to consume by inhalation. It is just some idea came to me when researching about Lakeland essence and naturally flavored tobacco (I found some pipe tobacco with actual rose petal included). It just some idea. I don't know how it will taste in a pipe and I wouldn't dare to try it before I can be sure it is safe for smoking. What do you think?
