    Is it okay to stick a brand new box in its entirety into the freezer?
  2. General Cigar Discussion
    Well, I'm freezing most of my stash this evening (and into the next few days). I was looking at a few of 'em, trying to decide what I wanted to smoke tomorrow, and noticed a hole in the wrapper of one. I'm not sure if it was a beetle hole or not (my noob status prevents me from posting...

    I've got a few coffin cigars - my first, which is why I'm asking - and I'm wondering if it's OK to freeze the entire thing? Can't really see why it WOULDN'T be, other than issues with the wood splitting?

    Well a recent post scared me into freezing. My 50 count humidor is full and has been holding 65% with the help of KL for a solid month. Just such a beautiful sight to finally see it full and I just didn't want a beetle to ruin it all. These are my cigars before and after the vacuum seal...

    NOT ABOUT FREEZING....well maybe. Picked up a 5er of the Camacho Pre-Embargos. I always freeze my sticks. Never had a beetle problem and Im keeping it that way. Im wondering though with these cigars, because of the age, would or wouldnt you freeze these sticks in particular?

    I was wondering how everyone handles box purchases?

    Being on this forum I read a lot about infestations of those pesky beetles. Is it common practice to freeze ROTT? Or only when suspicion is raised when getting a new box? I'm realizing the kind of investment I am building in my Humi.

    I thought I would start this thread because of all of the trades and bombs going on. It got me wondering who freezes their cigars. It seems it would be redundant to freeze cigars that have already gone through the process. So, if you freeze your cigars please post your name in this thread...

    I've got a wineador and a humi. I put daily smokes and friend hand outs in the humi which I freeze first. These are usually smokes like Bahia Maduro, Puros Indios and Padron X000 Naturals. In my wineador I have my personal favorites and singles which I haven't been freezing considering the fact...

    I put my digital hygrometer in the freezer today to check the temp. And it showed -22 F. Is that enough to kill the beetle eggs?

    Do you freeze everything? Even the expensive stuff? I did a trial of freezing some cheaper sticks, still havent smoked em yet, but I wasnt too worried if they got all messed up. But Im thinking about ordering some RP Vintage 90 and 92 smokes, and I dont know if I should freeze them or not...

    Does anyone have a list of what vendors and/or brands freeze their cigars prior to shipping?

    I appreciated reading this from BaliBob, I think he wants to be fair in letting us know of the remote chance that insects may be in our tobacco. As a result, I've bagged all my stuff for a 5-day stay in my freezer, "just in case". Anyone else do this as a precaution?
  15. General Cigar Discussion
    I typically buy my sticks at a B & M here, but recently sold my soul over at cigarbid. My first shipment is about to arrive, and before I go putting them in my humidor, i wanted to get some clarification. I've read multiple threads about freezing cigars that come in the mail to prevent...

    Do you freeze your cigars before they get into your humidor? Yes, Always? No, Never? Sometimes, depends on where/who I got them from?

    Just curious how many people on this board freeze there cigars before long term storage. I have never done so but wanted to hear the boards thoughts.

    I'm about to embark on taking the freezing precaution for beetle protection since I sometimes have issues with keeping my humi 70 or lower. Was planning on refrigerating them for 24 hours, then freezing for 3 days, then refrigerating again for 24 hours before putting them back in the humi. My...

    Greetings, I posted an intro in the sticky above so I wont repeat that info. I live in Montana and spend a fair bit of time hunting and fishing. The other morning I was duck hunting early morning in some fairly cold weather (like 10 degrees) and I'm thinking my pipe was freezing up. I'm...

    I just got done with my first freeze treatment on bunch of stogies that had been aging for quite some time before a small beetle problem. My questions are: Has the aging process been reversed by the freezer, fridge, room temp process? How long should I let em sit in the humidor before...
