best way to explain it is like charcoal. charcoal= wood heated until the volatiles in it off gas, same thing we are doing with the tobacco, just off gassing it

ive been thinking about this for a while, never more than a "would it work" but i have wondered. i think it will taste like sallam flavor but missing under tones
