No Tin Foil :(

so packed up my hookah and planned to break in my new qt, which isnt really a qt cause i have to use my other hookahs base which actually fits quite nice and looks good. but any ways, i forgot the tin foil and we dont have any here, i have nothing, i wish there was a tin foil alternative lol, someone bring me tin foil, grrrrrr.

i remember hearing about some guy that ran out and he used a metal fork to keep the coal off the shisha.

really anything that wont burn or melt would work as long as you could get airflow.

if you are using quicklights use the foil around them.

break a ceramic cup or something!

I vote unbend paperclips and create a grid overtop the the shisha



+1 for ingenuity. That would probably work.. Must have he hasn't posted back.

Heh. I used to work at a gas station like that, but it was next to a grocery store and I was allowed to take about 40 minutes of my shift away from the booth for a paid lunch and breaks. Anywhere nearby that you could grab some from?

Yeah, I used to read books for my entire shift after I'd cleaned up the pumps and taken out the trash. I wish I'd had a laptop back then, but oh well. The breaks and lunch were required by company policy (and law, I think)

Nope. Just smooth it out as much as you can (take care not to tear it!) and use it. You'll be fine.

Actually, that might not be a bad re-usable substitute for crappy screens.

I was looking around on a German forum yesterday and there were pictures of what this guy did when he didn't have foil. He went outside and grabbed a handfull of rocks off the ground. He rinsed them off and then put them on top of the tobacco. They were big enough so that a good air flow could pass through them and still keep the charcoal off of the tobacco. He said it took about 10 minutes of puffing to get it to start smoking, but that's only because the rocks take longer to get hot. He said that it smoked like a CHAMP after that though. So if you're ever there, grab some rocks, rinse em off, and smoke away.
