Default pipe tobacco..

ok so i have this bag of pipe tobacco laying around. i smoke a loaded bowl once or twice every so often. in other words..i have a good amount lying around..so i was wondering..is it possible to make some of my own moassel using this tobacco..? the brand is apparently called Criss-Cross, made in the US. its a vanilla blend, since i rlly like vanilla, and the cut is obviously a fine cut, so i figure the end result would appear like a hookah hookah or HF. so all in all..is it possible to turn my pipe tobacco into a Mo'assel? Please help me out guys..!

Most aromatic pipe tobaccos have sugars added that you're going to need to remove by rinsing first.

After that, you're going to want to cut it, I suggest getting some soaked tombac for this.

Cut it together with your tombac and add molasses until you get a moassel texture.

Bake it in the oven at about 175. 90 minutes should do it.

Add some more molasses, not too much, and a bit of glycerine if you want to. You'll have something pretty close to moassel.

Should have some Tombac with it. But may as well EXPERIMENT LOL GO!
Double bake with honey (not from the bear) or not blackstrap molasses. Let sit for 24 hours in between baking. Add a bit of glycerin if you can at the end and let it sit overnight at least. A full 24 hours.
Bake at 150 for atleast 3 hours.
SO to recap (shorten rather):
Add high quality honey
Bake for 3-4 hours at 4 hours
Wait ~24 hours
DO IT AGAIN!
Let sit for an hour, add glycerin (small amount).
Wait 24 hours.

That's what I'd do :3

Second thought, I recommend Coyoteros method, he's done things similar a lot more.

Honey is great if you've got delicate flavors that molasses may overpower. It sucks because honey-based tobacco (Called tobamel) is harder than hell to scrape out of a bowl when you're done. I recommend a screwdriver.

Glycerine is nice but unneccesary. It helps with the clouds and can make your tobacco a little more heat tolerant, but I've made tobaccos without it and it works fine.

I suggested it for that reason. I also use it to preserve DM.
Which seemingly failed; RIP Khus.
