Up here in the PNW, especially during the rainy season, it can be almost impossible to dry tobacco by leaving it out. In some cases it can even draw in MORE moisture as it sits. More than a few times I've laid it out flat on a piece of foil. Then put it a good distance under the broiler in the oven, and let it sit for a few minutes. Seems to work well just have to be careful not to let it get very hot as it can cause some weird changes in the flavors.
