Default Acclimating in NJ

Well I decided to finally buy some noir tangiers new lime. This being my first time trying to acclimate the shisha I knew it was going to be bad.... but I didnt think this bad.

I have been acclimating for almost 2 fruckinngggg days! How long does it usually take for you tangiers smokers in New Jersey?

As soon as I got the shisha I put it in a long tupperware, I spread it evenly and every hour I gave it a stir and respread it. I did that for about 5 hrs and I still got the bbq smell. Then I just left it over night since I was going to bed. Check in the morning and still a bbq smell. Still till this very hour it got a bbq smell.

EPIC FAIL!!!

You may have gotten one of those legendary bad batches. I just ordered a good batch and it worked for me even though im in a dry climate. I think the best way to acclimate is to lay it out on some tin foil so that it is all spread evenly. Not sure what else you can do........

Man I live in Tennessee, and it started raining this week, and I have had this Tangiers Horchata open for close to 4 days. I'm about to give up and smoke this oatmeal bbq shisha.

yea.. same happened to me.. tangiers = pure fail.. tried acclimating for like 2 or 3 days.. nothing.. so to the trash it went lol...

some batches refuse to acclimate.. its retarded that you buy something and you have to wait for the tobacco to be ready for you to smoke it.. it's like paying a hooker and she refuses to do her job until she is nice and purdy LOL

ewwwwww

honestly the only reason I bought the noir line was because I wanted to buy a different flavor. The noir line has such a wider selection of flavors compared to the lucid.

Does anyone know if there will be new lucid flavors comming? Or at least will some of the noir flavors also be produced in lucid... Eric is kindof a jerk for doing this. lol

lol MH

Yeah dude good luck acclimating, I don't know if it's the humidity on the east coast during the summer or it being damp in the spring or fall, but I've had the same experience with alot of tangiers flavors, only a few have come through for me.

Haha, let me know how it goes. If it doesn't taste good just empty the bowl and let it sit out again. It's not like tangiers burns easily and you won't be wasting any tobacco.

my new lime was kind of greasy and i didnt even acclimate it and it worked fine. i mostly go by look if it isnt runny and the juices arent running off the tobacco you should be fine

Well the products ready, it's just how it's made. You have to let it get used to your climate (humidity) before you smoke it. I guess it's kind of like a cigar in a way?

Ehhh, not really, a cigar has to be kept in humidity close to it's home climate. No acclimation there, it just needs to be kept wet.

That seems silly to me, lol. But I have no intention of ordering Tangiers anyway.

Try keeping it uncovered stirring it every 1/2 hour and keeping it covered 20 hours and then 4 hours open stirring it again every half hour. Someone told me this and I'm on long Island so we are the same climate and it's humid now so try this. I didn't think it would work but it did and in 3 days it was perfect but even when I take it out now I stir it and I smell something off but I let it sit for up to an hour after stirring uncovered then I smoke off the top and it's been excellent. Maybe I was lucky and if this doesn't soud right then don't try it but it did work for me.

nj almost went into state of emergency due to the weather. i was out of power for over 12 hours and evacuated to the high school. anyway to acclimate it, spread the motherfu--r out on a piece of aluminum foil. spread it out so each tobacco has its own section on the foil and not ontop of each other like in the Tupperware.

let it sit @ room temperature between 67-72. I keep mine in the basement to acclimate.

Local Tangiers Fanatic checking in !

First question, what flavor did you order ?

Second, if its been acclimating for more than 2-3 hours, just put it back in the container, never needs to sit out that long.

Just remember when you smoke it to pack tangiers heavier than you would other tobaccos, and use less heat.

What kind of coals do you use ?

I got Tangiers New Lime.

It has been acclimating for like 3 days now LOL It still reeks of bbq.

I had one session with it and it was horrible. I know how to pack it because I have been smoking the lucid version and I have had no problems with that.

I use coconaras.

It is raining like crazy over here. I now have it spread on a big a$$ piece of foil, hopefully this will work out.
