A good 20-40 count?
Posted 21 March 2012 - 09:46 AM
I'm torn between a tupperdor and a nice small humidor. About 4 yrs ago I went the humidor route from cheaphumorous.com and had a heck of a time keeping rel. humidity up. It was a constant battle. (used beads, digital calibrated hygdrometer). Fast forward a few years and I'm slowly getting back into cigars. Currently it's a golf / weekend habit, with special occasions thrown in here and there.
So I'm thinking that i won't have to fight with a tupperdor, but, it's not exactly "presentable"... I'm really leaning toward a humidor and want a "good" one that is easy to take care of. I'd like to hold about 20 smokes + beads.
I'll be doing my first noobie trade in a looong time soon, so I need something to store them in!

Plus if you want it to be "presentable" I'm assuming youre having people over who care about humidors so you might want to stock some extra cigars for them.

100ct is way too much. Id have to fill it all the way up, then I'd have to smoke them.... Hmm... There are certainly worse things! Seriously, I think maybe 40-50ct might be my max.

but i dont think the sticks will age that much given the environment
What makes you say that?

You'll have plenty of storage but wont have to worry about regulating RH. If you decide on the Lock and Lock, all you'll have to do is open the lid once in a while b/c it creates so good of a seal that air will not be able to pass through it. You can still get a smaller humidor as recommended above for display purposes. I am doing this as well. Good luck.

Do you use cedar trays or separators to better organize things?

The top is almost identical though!

I have a lock and lock that holds approx 15 sticks.
What size is it?

What im not sure about is if you need to leave the lid on or off and if on, opened or closed.
