I was running low on shisha and coals, so I decided to go crazy and get myself a Christmas gift.
250g Jars of Al Fakher
100g of Fumari Mint Chocolate Chill
3 boxes of 84 piece Coco Nara Coals
So I ended up getting 1,600g of shisha and 252 Coco Nara Coals. Its a lot more then what I went for but hopefully now I will be set for a while.
During the week my girlfriend and I smoke at her apartment, so I leave my hookah there all week. Then on friday I pack everything up and drive it the 30 mins back to my house. I've done this for many weeks now, and know how my cases pack so if something is missing I can see an empty spot in the case. I really need to buy a another case or a larger case because I am currently using a cardboard box to hold my box of CocoNaras, my small phunnel (in a padded pouch), any shisha that wont fit in my shisha case, my coal holder, and my electric coil burner.
Friday morning when I packed up the hookah I was not feeling well at all. I quickly packed up the hookah and looked at the table to make sure that I had not forgotten anything. There was nothing on the table so I shut the cases and drove home. I didn't realize until I got home and tried to smoke a bowl of AF Grape that I had forgotten the burner. I hoMFed on the Hookah Forum Chat and asked if anyone knew how to light Cocos on a gas stove. I wish i had wrote down the user name of the guy who helped my, but I didn't and I forgot it. He sent me a picture of a small computer fan metal guard. While that is a great idea I didn't have one. Then I had the idea of bending a coat hanger. So I ran to my closet got a hanger and bent it so it would hold a coco.
It took a little longer to light the coals but I worked perfectly! I'm glad that I pulled that hanger up from the stove before it cooled because it had started to weld itsself to the stove.
To make a long story short I thought I got a large phunnel from H-S, so I bought a glass scalli mod from MN Hookah. It turns out that I have a small and a medium phunnel.
I have heard stories that you can't use the scalli mod with a small phunnel. I decided to try it anyway, I figured with the mod in it it would be the perfect size for when I wanted to smoke by myself.
The first time I tried it, I used Al Waha tobacco and 2 halves of a 40mm quick light. The smoke never really got thick.
The second time I used some Starbuzz Orange and 2 Coco Nara's. This try was thicker then my first try, but it never got as thick as I like it.
The third time I used starbuzz again and 3 Coco Nara's. I loaded the bowl exactly the same as if the mod was not there. And only poked 1 circle of holes in the center of the bowl and the mod. This time it worked perfectly.
