I had a flashback.....

Barry Irby
Grew up on a farm where one of the crops was dark fired tobacco. My grandfather was in charge for firing it. He would build small fires under it for days on end and watch a thermometer. The temp in the barn stayed stable for a week or more. At the end, when the moisture was finally gone the temp would rise dramatically. He watched closely for that and at that moment the fires were put out. Otherwise there was a danger of burning the barn down. One did burn.
