Good Afternoon Pipers
Here in the far east Phoenix Metro there is No real tobaccinst available on weekends I thought I would come here to ask a question.
Is there a set method in mixing tobaccos? Example: if I wanted to mix Virginia(Burely), Cavendish (natural, Latakia and a Vanilla. What would be a good ratio?
Thanks for your advise
John

Checked out the links. saw they were dated 2009. As for Stag there is only one in Phoenix and it is on 24th street, 50 mile drive.
Thanks for your input.

phxrock, Virginia and burley are two different tobaccos, very different. There are scores of different possible blends just using

a few of the tobaccos you've named. Here's a simple recipe. You might get a scoop or spoon to be your standard. You could

blend two scoops of Virginia, two scoops of burley, and one scoop of Cavendish, with a slight sprinkling (a pinch) of Perique.

I call this kind of combination a mix. A real blend uses pressure and/or aging to bring together the flavors. Mixing you just do

with your fingers, stirring things together and smoking them immediately or soon. Welcome aboards and happy smoking.
