Ok I understand now. And you are right. I just scored a Stainless Steel double door commercial fridge. So I'll be repurposing that.The way I do flue-curing (without a wet-bulb thermometer or a hygrometer) is to keep some water in my Crockpot (my heat source) during yellowing. This just prevents the leaf from drying instead of yellowing. Once mostly yellowed (but not entirely yellowed!), I remove the water. The yellowing phase is the only phase during which you can peek inside the chamber. After that, do not open the chamber until the flue-cure run has completed. Now the temperature (ignore the humidity) is ramped-up according to the chart. The only variation in the schedule is the time it takes to mostly yellow.
The fuss over humidity is necessary when you have a barn full of tobacco. You won't.
I've been following through as I got time. Sometimes it's better to get direct answers. Sometimes I'm thick headed and have to have an answer specifically to understand it. LolCheck out the flue cure threads and the curing: other threads here. Great info.

Good thread: http://fairtradetobacco.com/threads/2757-Leverhead-s-Flue-Cure-experiment-2013
the double fridge thread actually starts on page five of this thread: https://fairtradetobacco.com/threads/leverheads-flue-cure-experiment.1036/page-5
That's what I was hoping for. As this is my first grow I have to get 2 years in. I have 140 ish plants hope they all make itThat thing held over six hundred leaves per load. Paraphrasing the movie ”Jaws” .... “You’re gonna need a bigger patch.” lol. That was a good find though, should make a great flue cure chamber.
You are welcome.Thank you
I agree. I'm in North DakotaYou are welcome.
Since you do plan to grow this season, it would be very helpful if you gave a general location in your profile. It will become especially important when you start asking curing questions and you get twenty different answers from twenty different locations around the world and maybe only one of them will have a similar climate. With a general location we can tailor our answers to your area, your climate, your conditions. Best for everyone. If you didn’t grow but only showed up to watch cigars being made, it wouldn‘t matter.
You have to change it in your profile so it shows up on every post. It currently shows US which covers a lot of ground. Click on your screen name on the top of bar. When that opens click account details and remove US and add general location. Mine says NE Alabama to narrow it down even further as topography and climate is different from south Alabama. If your state is pretty much the same over the whole state, just put in the state.I agree. I'm in North Dakota
