Re: Scared to try Tangiers!
Personally, I wouldn't bother.
I live in the phoenix area and never got it to smoke right.
Tangiers may be good if you're able to connect all the dots and then get lucky, but there are plenty of brands that are great right out of the package with no special preparation.
Personally, I'd suggest going with something more respected and known for quality than Tangiers. If you've got some money to waste in the future, maybe give tangiers a try.
