Someone spain the farming/recipe for smokeless tobacoo
 
I'm familiar with growing/harvesting of burley which is used in the production of cigarettes. I'm also familiar enough to know it's not as easy as putting some dried burley in your mouth and getting any enjoyment from it (unless you like turning green and throwing up)

Does anyone here know what variety of tobacco is typically used for the smokeless, preferably dip, but chewing is fine also. Also, what is done during the growing, aging or processing as far as added flavoring or anything else that needs to be done to get similar results that you get from that bought in stores.

A side note. I've used the twist type tobacco like Mammoth Cave/King Bee and some others and while it will do, I would like something I won't have to use a knife to separate portions. Twist IMO is just a slight improvement from straight out of the field non improved gut wrenching tobacco. Not to offend those who like this type. It's just not for me.

Slightly off the original post, but when you mentioned "twist" I thought back to my dad and his brothers. My uncles would take us on a tour of the farm on the Missouri River bottom land, point out witness trees, old school houses and other landmarks. Uncle Paul always wore bib overalls with a twist at the ready in one of the front pockets. One day while on one of these tours my older brother, he was 17 at the time, thought he was grown up enough to try chewing tobacco. Dad let him have a bite off of Uncle Paul's twist. My brother turned 3 shades of green and it took him several days to recover. His suffering aside, it was one of the funniest things I can remember.

You can also make a chewing tobacco referred to as plug, you take cured leafs one at a time layered flat, drizzle honey or molasses’s in between each layer of leafs until it is about two inches thick with the cured leaves, then press it flat, chewing tobacco contains a large amount of sugars, made it when i was younger but have since given up chewing. Here's a link to a recipe I just found, it seems right for twist.

I'd been using chewing tobacco and dip for years before I got the urge to try some twist tobacco and I had a difficult time with it.

I remember taking a bit early in the morning while gearing up for a day on the tractor. It took about 30 min for it to soften up enough to be bearable and I spit black until I took it out for lunch. Stoutest, longest lasting stuff I've ever tried.

Didn't enjoy it enough to swap over though.
