I roll my own smokes.

They do contain tobacco, I'd say that much.

My problem is this: though I'm generally a Drum smoker, recently I've been trying more dry tobaccos..

And I've found that after a while, tobacco tends to dry up and break and become very powdery...and in that case it's impossible to roll.

It all comes out on the end when rolling..it doesn't become compact enough to close, and once you've closed it, you tilt it upside down and it all comes out and stuff like that.

Anyone with any experience have any tips as to what to do when tobacco becomes like that? Any rolling tips, closing tips etc?


What I do in that case, when it alls crumbly, is to roll it as you normally do and then pinch the end and twist it a little, pretty much like a joint, then light the part that's twisted. And don't tilt your cigs upside down

Ok cool. I've seen that done.

But it's also the rolling part itself that's harder.

Anyway, gone on to smoke American Spirits, much drier (drum was too moist, it'l like a damn pipe tobacco) and pretty decent tasting.

You know those little tricks that when someone teacher them to you, you wonder how you never thought of it?

Basically he wa getting the tobacco, and before putting it in the paper, he'd put it in between two hands, and roll his hands, rolling the tobacco into a cylinder before even putting it in the paper.

Then you put the paper over it, and turn your hand upside down.

After that, when you roll, you only have half the work to do before closing it.


I do not like this advice. I believe that pinching the paper together with your fingers and then rolling the paper, not the tobacco itself, yields much better results than if you use your fingers to directly roll the tobacco. It gets compressed together if you do it that, which is bad shit.

It's also important that you set yourself up correctly though, you should break the tobacco apart so there aren't any clumped together bits then spread it evenly (this part is important) across the paper. If it's not consistent before you start rolling it, how will it be consistent afterwards?

Most of this will be useless to people who can't roll though, considering the problem 99% of the time is tucking the paper in and then finishing it off, and this is something that you most likely won't learn from someone else (unless you're doing something ******ed), it just takes practice.

what do you mean using the filter?

Have a decently firm grip on both ends
never let go
use the the point 3/4 up your thumbtip to roll
roll a lot
when tucking, roll the paper down so a few mm of baccy is exposed
do one swift clean movement and it should tuck right in and be decently tight
dont let go of grip
roll from the tip of your thumb to the middle bit
work the shaft

Shaft working is more important when rolling joints, just cos its bigger than your finger utensils, so requires a different method. Working the shaft with cigs is only if you can't roll well but utilising the skill will help you learn to roll.
