    I recall reading somewhere that snus is actually made from the stems. That may be misinformation though.

      I've got a ton of dried up leaves in a bag too. It ain't tobacco but its for smokin only.............

      hee hee hee :wink:

      Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of the people I killed because they were annoying......


      I've been wrong lots of times. Lots of times I've thought I was wrong only to find out that I was right in the beginning.

          Nah, they use the proper leaf - maybe the cheap stuff uses more stems as filler, that I could believe.

            Now that would make one interesting pris. Ground, salted, boiled and freebased.

              The only problem with using cigarette tobacco over plain fresh or air-dried leaves is that cigarette tobacco is, generally I think, fire cured, which means it's already polluted with toxic crap. :?

                I've gotten pretty good results using additive free American blend cigarette tobacco, which is just flue cured Bright (Virginia), air cured Burley and Turkish tobaccos. For a test batch, I used 1/3 cup ground tobacco, added 3/4 tsp. sea salt dissolved in 50 ml of boiling water, and stirred it in while still hot. Put the uncovered bowl of tobacco in a crock pot with a couple of inches of water in the bottom and steamed it on low for about 5 hours. Then I mixed in 1/4 tsp sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) and back into the crock pot for another 4 hours. Took it out, let it cool and added 6 drops of heavy mineral oil (food grade paraffin). Packs beautifully and doesn't taste half bad altho' the flavor would definitely be improved by a few drops of sherry or other hooch. I think that the light weight flue cured tobacco probably wouldn't stand up to the prolonged sweating that most snus recipes call for.
