Default Acclimating Tangiers

Hey everyone. I just got my first Tangiers in yesterday. I've been doing a BUNCH of research on it for like the past 3 months. I know everything I have to do and after I got it yesterday, I set it out on a piece of wax paper in my room and spread it all out to acclimate. That was yesterday at 1pm. Its been almost 24 hours now and it still has its soy/barbecue sauce smell. It's not as potent as it was when I first opened it. Should I leave it out more or just put it in the container and hope for the best? Thanks for all the help guys! Happy smoking!

copy and paste from a previous tangiers thread:

No no no, what they are leaving out is that oyster forks are made with a special metal composite, and it helps with the acclimation process of tangiers tobacco, smoked in a special glazed tangiers bowl and if you don't make special tangiers holes in your foil then you wont get anything other the bbq sauce. It is super important you follow every step in the marketing campaign or you will not get your tangiers to smoke right.


anyway... ignor the above it was just a quote i wanted to bring out of retirement, we have plenty of tangiers fans here that will answer the questions better than i can

The best results i've gotten is leave it out for four hours, stir it then pack it up for 4 hours. Bring it back out, stir it, pack it up after four hours. Do this for about 20 hours and it will be good to go.

haha this is more of a slow burn. You DON'T need an oyster fork at all. Its really no different than a regular fork, your hands will work fine. I'm sorry you purchased the fork, but you may as well get your $$$$ worth from it now.

That was my feelings. I've just seen videos of Eric packing bowls and he always uses it. I just want to get Tangiers down the right way lol
