Years Back, I can remember pure burley cigarettes, which I believe were made from the lower burley leaves, what us farmers called trash lugs, which had a lot of weathering and damage, which reduced alot of the more pungent and undesirable tastes in burley. At the time the leaves were highly sought after at the tobacco warehouses, especially if they showed "frog eyed" white leaf spots, which meant they were extremely ripe/diseased when harvested. Anyway, does anyone have any experience with processing lower stalk burley leaves into pure burley cigarettes? I seem to remember these cigarettes being advertised as toasted burley, which was rather common for burley types. I imagine the PH needs to be changed considerably, to smooth out the smoke as well, and I wonder if anyone knows what the ph range should be. Any info would be appreciated.
