That's the initial crank down. No cheater bar used on the clamp. Will probably be able to compress a little more

Wowzers! I've seen pics of pressing results in other forums, but I don't think I've seen anything that dense or homogenized. Well done! How's it smoke and taste?

It's pretty amazing stuff. Something about the addition of perique and pressing makes magic happen with good ol half & half

That looks amazing. The Half and Half with perique sounds intriguing. What do you do, just cut some off like with a chew plug and rub it out?

I must sound like a newb :lol: Like I said to you in a PM, I don't stray too far from my wheelhouse, because these great sounding blends and cuts and coins and flakes etc, seem lost on me. :cry:

Yep! I just slice it and rub it. Allow some dry time and go for it

So I've been smoking this Best of The Rest of mine for a while. It's essentially a scrap jar of my usual fare, but I decided to toss in things I didn't care for. It sat and sat and I didn't have it in a sealed tight jar and it dried out. I like dryer tobacco so I gave it a run. Nope, not for me, but on a whim I tossed in a nice handful of Sutliff Rum&Maple and Vanilla Custard for moisture. Normally I just shake the jar when I add something, but this time I mixed it all in a bowl. Don't tell the Mrs! Then I had another brainstorm, or brain fart, and tossed a heap of Velvet and Walnut match in and mixed again. I wound up with something like 1/2 to 3/4 of a pound. I tossed it into a big tight sealing large mouth jar for easy filling in case it turned out good. It sat for a good 6 months or better and boy is it nice! I'll never recreate it and I've decided to burn through it and not jar any for the future. This is why I've been interested in DD and JP lately. Thanks to all for letting me ramble!

You're the second one today that mentioned chewing these pressed hoodads. I don't chew so I don't know?! I bet half & half would be a flavorful cheek load though
