To all those making your own smokes be aware of the fact that the $24 tax applies only to cigarette tobacco and not pipe tabacco. Here in Pa. I buy a pound of tobacco for $14. I know some stores bumped up the price on all their tobacco, blamed the tax increase, and then pocketed the extra money. If it says pipe tobacco on the bag it shouldn't cost you more than $15 or $16 per pound at most. For reference I buy Criss Cross brand but others are about the same price. I got this straight from the store owner. Cost of a pack of smokes for me is about 90 cents.

Criss Cross Smooth & Zig Zag tubes. $11.75/carton. Far less chemical crap than ready mades. I just made a wide mouth pint jar full (About 3 packs) in less than 20 minutes.

There appears to be other advantages too. I got a tub of Bugler just to road test, $35, damn cig tax. :mad: The wife says the awful cigarette smell is gone now. :) Another thing, I smoke less.

Do you guys use a machine and if so what kind or hand roll?

I use a Premier Supermatic (The blue one) injector. It was around $40 when I bought it last year. I've found the tubes are every bit as important as the tobacco. After trying many brands I've settled on Zig Zag tubes. For me Premier & Gambler tubes make nasty cigarettes. If you use light tubes, the perforated tubes are pretty bad, the Zig Zags aren't.

My consumption dropped to half with home made from what I was smoking with ready mades. I wasn't even trying to cut back either.

Once you're familiar with the process, it's no big deal to make your own. This morning I made 3 packs in under 20 minutes including clean up.

Feel free to PM me if you have any othe questions.

Hmmmm... how about licensing smokers? If you can pass the written test (including multiple choice questions about additives, health risks, and proper use of matches and lighters), complete the eye exam (which ashtray is closest?), and then demonstrate actual skill and ability in smoking, then a license could be issued. Obviously, if you are a moron with your smoking, your license would be revoked. (Haz Mat endorsements can only be obtained in California).

Two different kinds of rollers, old school and new, the new works great doesn't make them too tight that they don't draw.

I used one of those orange ones with the belting quite extensively in my youth. Here's the injector I use now:

This link is broken, either the page no longer exists or there is some other issue like a typo.


If anyone wonders, the tubes cost around $3/carton after the tax hike.

Any viets out there ever smoke Park Lane, a special blend sold in Vietnam but I think it was made in Red China. Two bucks a pack, back when a pack in the army cost 15 cents state side.

Need more info, error? White page with nothing on it? If there is something wrong I'm not aware of it and will fix it but I need the steps you have taken or more information so I can duplicate it to find out what the issue is. Browser you are using, etc.

Note that for video it only accepts WMV, there's directions here. Also note the page will time out after about 15 minutes so if you're on slow connection it will fail to upload.
