I think it might be very interesting to see if others notice unusual or novel burning qualities of their smoking tobacco. My small stemmed black mammoth has this strange energy release when I smoke it. I notice audible crackling or burning noises and I can see sparks of energy release from it in very small and quick amounts. I am trying to discern what this is and what the cause is. The tobacco was grown with minimal fertilizer, it was sun cured until golden brown, and was not picked too early, but it was planted later in the season. From the previous post I made about sugar in tobacco and the flue curing process, I wonder if my tobacco being completely sun dried and cured made the burn composition differ. Has anyone else experienced any unusual burning patterns or other oddities?
