    It's been a while since i've been on the forum.  I've since added a few more to the collection.  Custom Crown Hookah inline, Leb pipe, and Elmas 628.  I'll post up pics soon.
  2. Bowl Warmer?

I do it all the time during the winter since I keep my to go stuff in my car. 20secs. done [/quote] do you just heat the bowl or bowl and tobaccy? [/quote] Just the bowl so its warm. I will only heat tobacco if I left my tobacco in the car during the winter. If its hard to mix and tobaccco not at room temp, then I throw my jar in the microwave for a few seconds to get it to room temp.

  5. [quote name='DrSmokes' timestamp='1317600067' post='526163'] [quote name='spoolinspoon' timestamp='1317598672' post='526159'] This is my method of packing tangiers in any phunnel bowl. It works for me and it's a great starting point. 1. Mix tangiers to distribute juices that have have settled to the bottom. (about 30 seconds) 2. Use your finger to put tobacco in the bowl, do not press down. Make sure you keep it somewhat fluffy but fill any gaps. Fill to the rim of the bowl (can be over the rip just a bit). 3. Now pat it down with the weight of your finger, do not mash it down! Level of tobacco should now be just below the rim. If you take a ruler it shouldn't touch. 4.Take your foil of choice ( I use Heavy Duty). Lay the foil on top of the bowl. (it should look like this when you seal it. What I do is pull the foil while pulling it down toward the bottem of the bowl. Use your hands and cup the bowl to pull the foil tighter. Once the foil is flat on top your ready to give it a final seal. What I do is take the palm of my hand and run it along the edge of the bowl. 5. I take a toothpick and poke rings starting with the edge. I only poke to size of the toothpick and dont go all the way down. Usually two rings works for me. If you keep your index finger and thumb on the rim of the bowl, it will help from foil getting loose. 6. Now for testing airflow. Take the bowl and give it a light puff from the bottem and then take a breath in. Two things should happen, should flow nicely and foil should stay intact with blow. If its hard to draw then you probably didnt pull foil tight enough or not enough holes. 7. If your onto this step your on the home stretch. Light up coals and smoke. On the Crown micro phunnel, I use two Coconara's and begin across from each other and on the edge. If the it startes to get harsh, stand one of the coals vertical so less surface area of the coal is in contact.   Keep note that this is[b] how I pack Tangiers [/b]in my phunnels. If it doesn't work its at least a good starting point. Make slight adjustments and you will get it! [/quote] Greatly appreciate it!! I think I have enough Tang left for 1 or 2 more bowls so I'll give it a try. But from the pictures I posted above, the bowl was actually quite nice. Took a lil break when the coals were almost done so I could eat dinner. Getting ready to put 2 more on. Now my question is, do you keep the coals in the same spot the whole time even when you go to place new ones on? Again, thanks! [/quote] I generally dont put it at the same spot. I've noticed that it shocks it and will burn. As for heat management, rotate the coals clockwise or couther-clockwise. When you place new coals place it on the next spot. If it gets harsh, stand the coal up.

  7. Where Do You Buy Your Shisha?

    [quote name='Hassouni' timestamp='1316555758' post='524578'] Khan al-Khalili and Arabica in Northern VA. Nakhla for $6 and AF for $9 - awesome. Various online vendors for Tangiers [/quote] those local places have good prices. I pick up from Arabica.

    ^well looks like i'm going to have to smoke out of it today. lol
  9. heat on little tobacco will cause throat irritation. Take the blue mist and break up the chunks, sprinkle to rim, pat down with the weight of your finger. Now take foil and make sure its tight, poke holes, check flow from bowl, coal toward edge and your set. Check your water level by taking your hookah without the bowl, and take a hit from the port where the hose goes into. Keep putting in some water until you get any water in your mouth. That is your overfilled water line. Now take a splash of water out. Take a hit, if no water then your good. If your still getting water, continue to take small amount of water and checking.

    negative...everyone is asking if i'm selling the teal boho. Thats my favorite glass!

    favorite pipe is definetly the Ma'shal. The exotica and shorter KM is my goto at home. My arcylic is in my car 99% of the time. You never know when you end up somewhere and want to whip out the hookah. Or if my car breaks down (knock on wood), guess what i'm doing?
  12. SB is suppose to be juicy in a thick syrup. Maybe you didnt put enough tobacco? Tang Lucid is extremly juicy.
  13. Tangiers Lucid is good. Maybe try Al Fakher. Nakhla is typically dry but can handle a lot of heat. The SB blue mist was probably a dry batch from what you are describing.
