I am new to this Forum but I have to say it is just an incredible source of knowledge. My tobacco is growing great and leaves of some my plants are starting to yellow some plants more than others. So I have been trying to get a strategy together for curing them. I am going to build a curing box/kiln for my Virginia bright leaf and Samsun because the climate is so cool here I don't think sun drying is a good idea. For my Golden Burley I have a small 6x8 greenhouse I am thinkng about using I have some of them leaves already in there for a week or so and they are half yellow half brown already. I have another option for the Burley a metal carport like structure with walls open at both ends and will only get as warm as the outside temperature is and where I am at avg day is 65 degrees 70% humidity that would be slower but would it be better? What I am aiming for is cigarette tobacco to stuff into tubes. My favorite cigarettes are Benson & Hedges(I know additives) and Winstons (non additives) I am not aiming for anything like American Spirit they like Winstons are non additive but taste too earthy too me. I use to make my own cigarettes for years I would use mix this and that i bought. My favorite was Peter Stockkebye Danish and mixed it with other stuff but the best was I mixed it with some whole leaf Turkish and Virginia I bought. The Peter Stockkebye was too sweet not mixed something else although smooth and no after taste. Anyhow with what I am aiming for any thoughts on my curing strategy? Any input or different recommendations would be appreciated.
