Air cured Virginia i grew a couple plants of last year, ribbon cut, cased with vanilla extract (small amount of PG and alcohol), brown sugar, and water. Mixed 70/30 with some chopped up homegrown Va/bur plug that tasted like smoking "a half a pack of cheap cigs and burning oregano" according to a note I had made. Stoved for a while at 200°, sprayed down with more of the vanilla/sugar casing, and stoved for a while longer. Pressed into a small puck/plug for a week or so. Just cut it open and sliced into thick flakes to dry before jarring. Will report on how it tastes in a few days after it dries down a bit then is jarred for a while.
