smfdff posted a topic in Humidor TutorialHello to FOH's; I have spent the last few hours jumping from site to site trying to figure out who has the best humidor for me. I recently joined FOH and rather than dip a toe in to test the water and try my new hobby out, I seem to have dove right in by purchasing 2 box's of cigars from 24:24 and the basic's; torch and cutter. So now that I have these 2 box's heading my way, and on the words of El Presidente, these 2 box's need to sit for about a year.So I am hoping some one here has a good web dealer for supplies. I started with the recommended tupper-dor method by get the small seal-able plastic container and the boveda but I don't think I can get 50 sticks in to the container. Thanks for the help!
Hey guys, Scouring the internet for new lighter ideas has raised a question, and I bring this question to the community. What type of fire do you prefer? I have noticed a lot of higher price point lighters such as: S.T. Dupont, Brizard, and a few other that I forgot the names of, are soft flame. From my beginnings of cigar smoking I have appreciated the fact that you don't ruin a cigar from lighting off of a soft flame such as BIC or any common gas station type lighter. So the fact that these highly expensive lighters are soft flame makes me wonder why are they different, and what can they bring to the cigar smoking experience, in which, the light plays an important role if affecting the rest of the smoke. I mainly use a jet flame grill lighter which is why I am in the market for a new lighter. Occasionally I will use wooded matches, but I don't have the patients to toast my sticks with matches so I just puff right off the match. Any insight or advise would be great. I am curious to see what type of fire people prefer and why. Thanks, Collin
My 1975 vintage Dunhill Rollagas burns perfectly in all respects except when I get down to (I guess) about 1/4-1/8 tank of gas; at which point the flame initiates at its normal, preset level and then shrinks down after about 10 seconds. I can adjust the flame back up, but if I do so then when I next open the lighter and spark it, I will get a very tall flame for 10 seconds, which then shrinks down to the new set level. Is this just typical for a Rollagas running low? Or is it symptomatic of a pending rebuild? Once I fill the tank again, all is normal; and I'm only using Dunhill butane.
