1. Use cedar sticks whenever possible. If you prefer a lighter, make sure it's butane to avoid strong odors.

2. Slowly heat the open end of the cigar (also known as the “foot” of the cigar) over the flame without touching the fire. Make a black ring around the end.

3. Put the cigar in your mouth and inhale slowly. Again, hold the cigar over the flame, about half an inch beyond, without touching it. Keep inhaling until the cigar catches the flame. Swirl and twist the cigar slowly for an even burn.

4. Once your cigar is lit, take it out of your mouth and watch the burn that you noticed. If the burn looks blotchy, just blow on the blunt spots to clear the burn, then take a poke or two of cigars to restore an even burn.
