Hi. While I'm waiting for my first crop to grow I decided to buy some whole tobacco leaves to tide me over. The problem is I can't make a decent rollie out of this stuff. I'm shredding it with a pasta maker and no matter if I make strands or chunks the tobacco is difficult to roll and won't stay lit. Does anyone have any advice as to how to roll their homegrown tobacco? Thanks.

Hello
I bought that shredder (from Poland) the cut is finer than with a pasta maker http://www.tobaccoandmachines.com/fr/in ... odukt&id=8
I also use a cig roller (from tobacco store) easier than rolling by hand.
To get it ready to smoke, I always roast the shredded tobacco a few minutes in my wood-burning stove oven. It works well for me.

Thanks very much. I'll order one of the machines. Is yours a 0.8mm one?

I wanted a 0.8 but finally opted for the 1 mm because they didn't sell extra blades for the 0.8 at the time!

A cheap pair of china scissors works quite well and will generate enough shred for a regular ciggie smoker...
Unless you are among those who enjoy fancier gadgets...

I never could get mine to burn without going out.
So I buy some cheap bags of commercial processed tobacco and blend with it.
Night and day.
It does show there are chems applied to all commercial baccy.
Best
