So last night I went to smoke and was too impatient to dry out my flake on a napkin like I normally do, so I put it on top of my coal stove (I heat with coal) After 5 mins it was almost bone dry and quite warm. It was arguably the best smoke I ever had. Flavor like I never had. I have seen the suggestion of microwaving your tobacco, maybe that's the effect you get? I don't own a microwave so I'll have to stick to the coal stove.
