Default Whats better to do ?

Is it better to keep the tobacco in the refrigerator or not, and if so is there any sort of difference ?

My tobacco is more than happy just sitting in a cabinet.
Which leaves more room in the fridge for beer.

what about the freezer? wouldn't it freeze the juicy goodness, then just let it out to get to room temp and stir it around to get the flavor back to the leaves

Just leave your stuff on a shelf or somewhere not in direct sun all day and somewhere cool not to hot but not too cold..

Fridge or Freezer will just dry it out and why waste Fridge and freezer space for tobacco when you need that room like Uglybiker said for beer and also food. Gotta have some munchies and drinks while your smokin some hookah

I don't have the foresight to decide what flavor I'm going to smoke that far ahead of time...I'm a little to fickle. I find its much better to store the tobacco in my closet away from the sunlight, hasn't done me wrong yet.

+1 on the avoiding fridge and freezer! Good way to dry and freeze dry shisha.

Refrigerators and freezers work on the idea of compressors. You compress the air and it makes it colder but also extracts moisture from said air because it is turned to liquids and solids. This is why food drys out in the fridge and it will do the same to tobacco. Moisture moves to the area of less moisture until an equilibrium is reached.
