The Effects of Humidity on Lighting.

Post by PineyWoodPiper » Fri Jun 26, 2015 9:24 pm

I am currently visiting my family in South East Texas, and needless to say the humidity here is nearly unbearable.

Earlier this evening I was sitting outside smoking a favorite house blend from my local B&M in Little Rock, in my Savinelli and I noticed that the pipe was smoking different than usual. The tobacco seemed to have trouble staying lit, could this have been due to the humidity or am I just imagining this and perhaps didn't pack well enough this time around?

Nothing crazy here. Humidity definitely impacts the burning of tobaccos. We've all been there.

Okay great. I move away for a few months and forget what it is like in 120% humidity.

To remove the smell of "stinky pipe" from the house, I've moved my pipes on to the back porch. Living in Florida, the summers are hot and humid. To make it easy, I brought some of my tobacco out there as well. Interestingly, I found the added humidity to the baccy actually improved my smoke.

Off Topic
Lacking sufficient coffee I read the thread as, "The Effects of Humanity on Lighting."

Carry on.

I thought this was going to be about problems with high-efficiency LED bulbs in humid tropical environments.



I'm glad that it's a smoking thread.

I thought I read the title as "The effects of humidity on Lightning". It's fairly disappointing compared to that.

You should start a thread on the effects of changing locale on pipe smoking. Things not only light different but actually taste different in different places. With enough coverage we could make a map of the world with pipe smoking as a metric.

My no. 1 spot for enjoying a pipe was in the hills of central New Mexico. The Jack Daniels wasn't too bad there either. This was in the summer, btw. Your map would have to be seasonal, of course.

My issue where I live, in S. Arizona, is low humidity (except for monsoon season; July - Sept)

I am just getting back to smoking pipes, and in a learned way. I am amazed at the wealth of knowledge about the subject out there. And I love the new terminology I am learning: "Room note." "Cake." Dottle."

I love Captain Black white package, and got a couple 12 ounce tubs

I see 4Noggins sells bulk in this, to 5 pounds. $160. Skeptical me. I wonder if they are selling a copy cat Captain Black in this volume.

Anyway, I've read mason jars are the best way to store baccy.

And I guess the moist Captain Black will do OK sealed up like that?

Don't be skeptical. Try the Lane bulk. Great to see you dive in.
