to lazy to read all the posts but heres my 2 cents on tangiers.

the noir line is harder to deal with and honestly a lot of times has to much throat tickle depending of the flavor. the lucid line is easier to deal with and i have had a lot less hassle with it. i smoke all tangiers out of a vortex, pick up my mixed up tangiers out of the container and put it in the vortex about to the rim, push it flat level with the spire about maybe a touch below it. poke holes in the foil not down to the bottom of the tobacco. i have good results with this compared to any of the "right" methods and i save tobacco compared to using a tangiers phunnel

ALthough not there right now, my current home is in El Paso, TX. Its not like most of west texas, because it actually has some elevation to it due to the franklin mountains. However, it is much like west texas in that its hot, and dry. Sounds like we have some similar conditions. I will tell you this, when I smoked Tangiers near Dallas, it wasn't so bad, when I smoked it in Atlanta, it wasnt so bad, but when I smoke it in El paso, there's basically no hope for the stuff, its too touchy to bother with. That's why I gave up on noir personally and went for lucid.

Some may say noir is where its at, but honestly, why? You get the same flavor on lucid every time, it doesnt ever taste like soy sauce or worcestershire or bbq or any other thing that belongs on meat and not tobacco. And, it still packs a decent hit of nicotine.

Pay the extra dollar, save yourself the time, hassle, and cookout flavors.

He should atleast give it a shot with noir because it's cheaper.

Stay away from Tangiers! I am backed up on posting my videos from vacation, but I did do a Horchata video last night. I got a sample of it and was surprised that my opinion of Tangiers is still the same. It still sucks!

your not supposed to need to but i have noticed its good to give it 30 mins to an hour if you smoke it right out of the package. if you put it in a zip lock container and let it sit a few days it seems to even out more and be better. over all it is no where near as temperamental and is smokable at worst out of the package
