  • What are Green Leaf Cigars?

    Green Leaf CigarsThe tobacco in Green Leaf Cigars, a.k.a. Candela Cigars, is baked instead of fermented, which retains the natural green of the leaf.

    For about 3 days, the tobacco leaf is hung in a barn and is cooked with high-temperature fires on the ground. This cooks out the same compounds that normal fermentation does, except it leaves behind the chlorophyll, where the cigar gets its green color. The fast process allows manufacturers to supply the masses more efficiently.

  • How To Smoke Filtered Cigars

    Filtered cigars offer a smooth taste while protecting lips from particulates and discoloration from the smoke. They still provide a quality smoke similar to premium cigarCriss-Cross Filtered Cigarss.  Here’s how you smoke them:

    ● Clip the tip of the cigar with a cigar clipper.
    ● To prime the tobacco, keep the tip of the cigar just above your flame. Spin it around for an even burn.
    ● When you see an orange glow, it’s time to puff. Put the cigar in your mouth and “suck” in the smoke like you’re drinking through a straw. Fill up your mouth with smoke and blow it out. Do this 4 or 5 times until you see white smoke.
    ● Keep it lit and smoking by taking a drag or “sip” every minute. Hold it for a couple seconds then exhale gently and experience the rich flavors left behind in your mouth. **Some people prefer to inhale filtered cigars, however, this is optional.

  • Smokin' G

    The Birth of a True Family of Tobacco Products

    Created for Smokers by Smokers!

    smokin' g pipe tobaccoThe quality tobacco and unique blends that became the Smokin' G family of smoking products were crafted to satisfy picky smokers because there was a need for great value coupled with quality flavor profiles for what we have termed the "unsatisfied smoker" market. We discovered that you are tired of settling for a less-than-perfect smoking experience. How did we do it? Each unique flavor profile was painstakingly hand-blended and smoker-tested for years at our own retail stores until they were "just right".

    We considered everything, from the first Turkish blends (we've had several brands try to replicate that great idea... but we believe ours is still the best you'll find) to the highest quality PET packaging weight and double-sealed bags for optimum freshness. We even designed your bags to include a transparent "window" so you could actually SEE the quality of your rag cut.

    With the exception of the Turkish Tobacco leaf included in your Turkish Blends which is imported, your Smokin' G tobacco is grown by hard working American farmers - many are small, hard working family-owned farms. ALL Smokin' G products are blended, and manufactured right here in America, providing local jobs in several states. We are pretty darn proud of that!

    The family of commercially available 8oz Smokin' G Blends was launched in 2009. Thanks to our Loyal Customers and the BUZZ they create around Smokin' G, local retail availability has jumped to include nearly three quarters of the states in the USA.

    From our Family to yours, Welcome to the Smokin' G Family!

    All our Best,

    Lisa & Donnie

  • What can I do to re-humidify my tobacco?

    During tobacco rag processing, raw tobacco is sent through re-dryers, which pull out all of the moisture. Later in the manufacturing process, the desired amount of moisture is added back to the tobacco. What does this mean to you?

    The Good Stuff™ Tobaccos are packaged based on net weight. One cubic foot of water weighs 62.37 pounds. It is to your advantage to buy dryer tobacco because you are getting more for your money. If you receive a bag that is not to your preferred humidity level, there are several remedies which are readily available in tobacco chat rooms and/or blogs (short for web logs).

    We suggest that you use a mist/spray bottle filled with water, preferably distilled, and lightly spray the tobacco once inside the pouch. Seal the pouch back and let it sit for approximately one hour. You should notice the difference in the feel and taste of your next smoke. You may repeat this process to get the tobacco up to the humidity level of your preference. Be careful not to apply too much moisture as this may lead to a host of other problems. However, in the event that it becomes too moist, simply spread the loose tobacco across a paper towel and allow to air dry. Then, if needed, you may restart the re-humidification process.

  • Pipe Care

    Get more pleasure from your pipe. Follow these few simple guidelines.

    Tobacco should be packed firmly, but not too tightly, because it will be hard to draw and keep alight, not too loosely as the pipe will then smoke hot.  When smoking a new pipe for the first time fill it not more than three-quarters full, subsequently increasing the amount of tobacco in gradual stages.

    For your own enjoyment, smoke slowly.  The tobacco of your choice will taste better and give you greater smoking pleasure if you follow this rule.

    Light your pipe carefully, applying the flame over the entire surface of the tobacco.  Tamp the tobacco down, relight and tamp again.

    After a while, a carbon deposit or "cake" will build up inside the bowl.  Do not allow this to exceed 1/16" in thickness or it may crack the bowl.

    To remove or replace the mouthpiece, wrap you palm around it and detach it with a gentle twisting action.  Never remove the mouthpiece from a hot pipe.

    Clean you pipe frequently for a sweet smoke.  A little spirit on a cotton cleaner will remove obstinate tar from the smoke channel.  Never use water or steam to clean a pipe.  When not in use your pipe should be kept in a rack with the bowl down to permit moisture to evaporate.
