I have been using them for about 2 months now and until someone comes up and does better by me I will be a customer for life. We use thier premium blend and usually get the giant refill (2 full flavor, 2 mild and 1 additive free) and never had to wiat more than 2 days, never had any damage and have always been satisfied.

If I had to sum them up in two words, "THEY ROCK"

One thing I forgot to mention. Their tobacco superb quality and I have 4-1 gallon wide-mouth jars and I transfer the tobacco from the bags to the jars when my order arrives. I usually have less than 3 ounces of shake per pound (which compared to most I have tried is freakin excellent) and since I live in Arizona I usually place a moisture button in each jar then as I use it i let it dry 10-15 min on the table before injecting and have never had anything other than perfect daily smokes.

Is their tobacco just Farmers Gold in a private label. I'm already stockpiling Sagamore Virginia but I'd like something else also in case I get burnt out on the Sagamore. If it's just Farmers Gold I can buy it a lot cheaper at Lil Browns than I can at Tobacco Station.

Tobacco Station has apparently been bought by Roll Your Own Tobacco in Texas. Check out the respective addresses.
Maybe they will improve the stock.

Thanks; I didn't realize that. It will be interesting to see what they do with it.

Well I did see that their addresses were the same, I have never ordered from ryo but have ordered quit a bit from tobacco station.

We use their premium blend full flavor and having smoked farmers gold I can tell you that the premium ff is NOT farmers gold.

I consider farmers gold to be pretty nasty and the tobacco station premium is quite the opposite.

I think I will order some sagamore platinum and see if I like it this month.

What we most enjoy about tobacco station is we get a giant refill kit which has 5 lbs of tobacco and 12 boxes of tubes. we get the zen tubes at 250 to a box and at about 110 bux total we get 3000 100 mm tubes and 5 lbs of tobacco 2 days after we order...everytime.

Cant go wrong with that.

I've tried their mild in the premium and American. I thought they were both quite good but their product line exactly matches that of farmers gold and I've read that M&R holdings is the largest supplier of private label tobacco. I suspect it might at least be the base of their products blended with something else.

I hate to say but I'm just a little leery due to the fact that their site says orders received by 12:00 noon CST are normally shipped the same day and I ordered at 7:00 am CST and almost 12 hrs. later, my order is still being processed. Maybe I'm jumping to conclusions, maybe not. I'll post back later. I have been wanting to try their premium blend and their giant refill kits if I like the tobacco.

I ordered a pound of the Premium FF and the Zen tubes. Hope I like it because I like the looks of the Giant refill kits...8 bucks and change per carton of smokes. Maybe I'll have to try some of the Premium mild blend.

Re: Tobacco Station
Posted by David Wilson on Wednesday, 31-Jan-2007

Sounds like a good choice to me, I have tried allot of tobacco in past few years..Like Stoker's #2 FF and Lt, Stoker's Premium, Stoker's 117, Gambler FF and Lt, Old Hillside FF and Lt, Midnight Special FF, Most if not all D n R's tobacco's (not all bad) and most of the local Tobacco shop FF and Lt House blend tobacco's.. And lets not talk about the enormous selection of tubes haha :-) I have found that different tobacco's with different tubes can be a difficult task to reach the desired taste and burn.. I didn't just settle with Tobacco Station, I like you was drawn by the cost per carton after purchasing their Giant refill kits.. The Zen FF tubes, well lets just say.. They are well made, they come 250 to a box and the they say the filter is 17mm.. Get ready for a large and hot puff or draw from the cigarette.. These are my first Zen tube's and I'm not sure If I will continue with them or not.. Let me know what you think of the Tobacco Station Premium FF tobacco, this site has been a BIG help to me as far as trying new and different tobacco's and tubes..

.. C YA ..

Well I placed my order on Jan. 29 and it arrived Jan. 31. It was well packed and no damage. I ordered a pound of the premium blend ff tobacco and 2 boxes of the zen tubes. The tubes were the ES tubes and came 250 per box. The tubes are good with a longer filter than premier tubes. They do go on my supermatic a little tight though. The tobacco is ggod with the zen tubes but to me, it's better in the premeir tubes. I'm going to try some of the premium mild blend and see what it's like.

Re: Tobacco Station
Posted by David Wilson on Friday, 02-Feb-2007

I agree,
the Zen ES king size FF tubes seem to be built good, but they seem to burn a lil hot for me..Think I will stay with the Premier king size FF tube for now..Tobacco Station used to be stationed out of Ohio, no longer though.. They are located in Austin, Tx now (woohoo) and under new ownership as well..Apparently this is why we weren't able to order from them for the past few months..Depending on what you smoked before, for me it was Marlboro reds..I prefer the Premium mild blend and the American mild blend (both are great tobacco's) remember each to his own..Different tobacco with different tubes allways has a different taste, to me anyways.. Have a nice day .. C YA ..

I'd like some feedback from those who've ordered from Tobacco Station.....
http:www.tobaccostation.com

I just ordered 3 lbs of their various blends last night for the first time. Now, I'm concerned it might not have been a good move after reading a couple of comments on the ryo forum.

Posted by Bobzarry on Friday, 07-Jan-2005

I have been getting my Tobacco from tobacco Station. great company in IMHO. I get the additive free and when I got my first order it came with the American blend. The American Blend was very smooth and an easy to smoke as a daily tobacco. They have fast delivery and I usually get my order within 2 days. I usually order by phone and Gary there is very personable and easy to talk to....although he will talk your ear off if you let him.....LOL.

Burley facts + Tobacco station smoke shop
Posted by Bob on Wednesday, 21-Jul-2004

Being and avid RYO/MYO like many of us here I'am always on the web prowling for new tobacco shops,new blends to test/try & good prices!! I was surprised when I ran accross Tobacco Station, North Canton,Ohio;
http://www.tobaccostation.com/
A new find for me,I noticed their good tube prices along with their 'house blends' starting with an 'American blend'at $13.65 per pound & 'Premium blend' at $14.51 per pound available in SEVEN blends! I wrote to them about burley in their 'premium blend' as after D&R's double toasted "two timer" I have certainly changed my opinion toward burley & was surprised to recieve a very informative e mail in return that I hope will be of interest to other myo'rs on this forum. The following is part of an e mail recieved from Gary Corbit of Tobacco station in response to my burley question.

"It is great to hear from you!
Yes, our Premium Blend Mild Cigarette tobacco does contain some Burley (formula is proprietary, of course).
It seems that most smokers of American-Blend cigarettes crave the taste of toasted Burley, whether they know it or not.
You no doubt know that Burley in it's un-cased form results in a high alkaline, harsh smoke.
However, sugars (honey, licorice, corn-syrup, etc.-again proprietary formulas) added to Burley produce several desirable results:
Sugars neutralize the Alkalinity of the smoke, resulting in a sweeter, more mild reaction.
Secondly, properly toasting Burley caramelizes the sugars to produce additional complex and pleasing flavors. Flue Cured and Oriental tobaccos generally contain enough natural sugars to produce essentially neutral smoke reactions (of course, it helps to use good-grade, well-aged tobacco; which our manufacturing partner does indeed use).
Our target market is smokers of American Blend cigarettes so some toasted Burley in our blends is, in our opinion, essential to satisfy these smokers who crave the added sweetness provided by the tobacco casings (Burley more readily accepts casing sauces than do Fluecured and Oriental tobaccos).
I'm sure you know that Marlboro, Camel, etc. contain casings & flavorings and are huge sellers. However, Winston, with their "additive-free" ad campaigns, is going down hill fast! Sherman and Natural American Spirit cigarettes are exceptions to the apparent rule as they use high quality, high natural sugar tobaccos in their blends.
This is probably why English and Canadian blend cigarettes have never really caught on in the U.S. (not enough casings and flavorings in their blends).
Regarding Tobacco Station: we went online in September of 2003. We are a partnership of a tobacco blend R&D guy who was also a manufacturer and consultant for around 25 years (me), a catalog and online marketing professional who has also had over 20 years in the tobacco business and a current tobacco manufacturer who is also a seventh-generation tobacco grower.
I have been in contact with Doug Kennedy (nice guy). We are exploring the possibilities of online advertising on the RYO Magazine website."

Re: Burley facts
Posted by Dave L on Saturday, 24-Jul-2004

That Burley needs casing (various forms of sugars, natural and artificial flavoring, humectants and other 'functional' additives sprayed on the the tobacco) and toasting (fuses the casing into the leaf) to make it palatable? :-)

Burley is popular because it can absorb up to 25% casing by weight (its also relatively high in nicotine), Virginia can only absorb up to 8%. Burley is predisposed to additive abuse. With enough casing you can hide any number of sins.

I haven't found anything to explain TwoTimer's "natural sweetness", how D&R has overcome Burley's lack of natural sugars without sugar casing.

Re: Burley facts + Tobacco station smoke shop
Posted by Bob on Wednesday, 28-Jul-2004

It looks as though tobacco station's cigarette products are a
private label job packed by Farmer's gold!, I recall seeing Pink Hill NC on a FG's bag & that stuck in my mind when I saw the return address of the package I ordered from tobacco station! Theres no law against private labeling so "buyer beware"
I found the tobacco's quality to parallel the reviews found in the tobacco reviews here on this site-I no doubt have spoiled myself tubing Peter Stockkebye danish export, McClintock Virginia & some of D&R's blends so I have not had any "bulk" tobacco for some time & must say this does taste better than the generic gas station brand I was smoking before I started Making My Own five years ago-and so it goes in my MYO/RYO ongoing adventure.

What did you think of the Tobacco Station tobacco? I am thinking of ordering some, but not sure if I want Farmers Gold tobacco or not..Any comments would be greatly appreciated..

Re: Burley facts and Tobacco station smoke shop
Posted by Paul on Monday, 01-May-2006

I tried Farmers Gold one time. It really made me think about quiting smoking. Tasted very bad, composition, make up terrible. I only boutght a half pound but 98% ended up in the garden. Could not think about mixing that with anything. The next tobacco I bought was the best tobacco I ever smoked. Just my thoughts.

Re: Burley facts and Tobacco station smoke shop
Posted by David Wilson on Thursday, 04-May-2006

Thank's Paul,
I have tried allot of tobacco including most of the D & R blends, Stoker's #2, Gambler (the worst), Tobacco Station American Blend, and some bottom of the barrel local Tobacco shop blends, I'm currently smoking Smoker's Warehouse Light in a Premier FF tube.. I don't buy tobacco for the price, even though it does matter considering the cost of pre-packaged smokes, I want a goood quality tobacco that has flavor and taste to it.. And I don't mind paying a little extra for it if need be.. I understand everyone has different taste and expectations from their smokes, but from reading on here and talking with other friends that roll their own, there seems to be a common starting point depending on what was smoked prior to rolling your own.. And lets not talk about the many different style and brands of tubes :-) filter size and composition of the paper used.. Different tobacco with different tubes has many different characteristics, some good and some not so good.. I'd like to thank Mr. Lers for this wonderful site, it has helped me tremendously and I do appreciate it.. Rollin Rollin Rollin gotta keep those ciggies a Rollin....

Re: Tobacco Station Tobacco
Posted by David Wilson on Sunday, 07-May-2006

It's me again,
Well I just had the opportunity to try another one of Tobacco Station's tobacco, its the Premium Mild tobacco in a (Premier FF tube).. I tried the American Mild blend and didn't care for it much (plain and boring) but this stuff is pretty darn good.. The quality and moisture content is just right and easy to inject in a Premier or Top-O-Matic.. A Jumbo Premium Blend Refill Kit with 2 boxes of King Size Tubes is only $19.65 with $7.95 S & H.. It's a bit more expensive than some of the other tobacco on the market, but it's still allot cheaper than store bought smokes.. I guess it's like anything else, its cheaper when you buy it in bulk, I received the order in 3 days as well, not 5 like Smoker's Warehouse.. This would make a nice quality everyday smoke for someone transitioning from store bought smokes or is looking for a tobacco that has allot of flavor without allot of the junk and flavorings that come in most of the others.. Try it, you may like it....

Re: Tobacco Station Tobacco
Posted by Dave Grant on Saturday, 15-Jul-2006

I have to agree on the American Mild blend, pretty boring, but the Premium Mild *is* pretty good. I also stuffed it into Premier FF tubes and found the combination to my taste for an everyday smoke. Their shipping was good , although my first order was not packed the best, and one box of tubes was pretty badly crushed and a second was also damaged. An email to Gary brought a quick response and an online coupon code good for $7.95, so my next order was essentially shipped free (and packaged somewhat better, no damage). All in all, a good experience with Tobacco Station so far.
