Default Acclimation with LUCID Tangeirs!?!?!?

K so i just got Tangeirs Lucid Blue Gumball and i read that you don't need to acclimate it, but it smells like burnt barbecue sauce which means i do need to. It probably has to do with the humidity of South Carolina. My question is how long do you exspect it to take. Im thinking around 6 hours just checking.

I don't see why people can't get it right. I set it up perfectly the first time with no problems at all.

I think the humidity claim is a bunch of BS.
Cas in point:
wacawaca has problems in S. Carolina where the humidity is usually over 90% (I know. I used to live there).
I've had the same problems here in Arizona where the humidity is often down in the single digits.

It's something else.

And yet we get the exact same results? Even going from one extreme to the other?
It's not humidity.

well.. for me thats not the case... i can smoke OG tangiers right out the bag... because im still in SoCal except when its raining (because the humidity rose).. but when its moved to a place that has a higher or lower humidity level it has to get acclimated.. yea it sucks but ehh... kinda like a cigar but not really...

I just stick my tangiers in the oven (WITHOUT TURNING THE OVEN ON) and let it sit usually in about 45 mins it smells fine and ready to go.

I live in AZ and I have never ever had a problem with tangiers og, caf line, or lucid. I never have even accu. Lucid in AZ.

I guess I'm just lucky

but I rarely smoke Tangiers I have about 5 Kilos sitting here. Nakhla owns me =]

I haven't had any problems with Lucid, Only took overnight for it to smell right. But definitely try Tangiers Horchata a very good flavor.
