Most fo the time you only have to let certain flavors sit out. In utah, we can't smoke Tropical Flavors, period. Yet citrus flavors are always perfection. I rarely have to acclimate any Tangiers I buy. As a matter of fact, I don't acclimate because it's not needed.

It is packed very tight. That's it. And poke a bunch of holes in it. Sounds easy enough to me...

And the Nakhla flavors like Cardamom, Marguerita, Cinnamon, Double Apple all benefit from breathing.
