Quoted from EJS:
I’d say this would come down to personal preference again but that being said I’ll take a stick that’s a little dry on a humid day. To me that seems more satisfying.
Personal preference aside, you don't want to have to suck like a Hoover to keep the thing lit, especially in the first third. Probably my fault though, letting the stick get too wet before smoking it. But as my theory goes, I think it would have burned much better on a drier day.
