Dryboxing has been something that has grown in popularity because some tend to think that a cigar can be conditioned to lose excess RH in a short amount of time. It doesn't....you can take a cigar that has been in a humidor at 68% and want it to come down to 65% and think that by laying it out will decrease the overall cigar down to what you'd like it to smoke at. Dryboxing is a "short cut" and if anything only a portion of the cigar will actually decrease in overall RH. So,,,what's the answer? Keep your humidors at the RH you like and when you want a cigar...open the lid and take one out. If you purchase a cigar that you feel is too wet...letting it 'dry out' for a day or two isn't going to decrease the overall RH anymore than adding a can of STP gas treatment is going to save me an appreciable amount of gas per tankful or whatever the ads say about it.
