=P yeah, I'm not sure anyone will know the exact temperature

in fact, you'd probably be doing the community a service by finding that out

I believe Tangiers said something before about coals burning between 350-450 degrees compared to a cigarette at around 900

Contact Tobacco Manufacturers, they should have an answer.

Well, I can hold my hand in boiling water (212 F) for about 4 seconds, whereas I can hold a lit coal for about 2, so around 425F sounds right...

now why in the world would you put your hand in boiling water......

i know a guy who can hold a full lit coal for 3 solid seconds before throwing it on my new carpet angry.gif

and i can pick up a lit exotica for 1 sec before it makes a hole in my thumb wallbash.gif

lmfao you did not hold you hand "in" boiling water for that long, you would have at least second degree burns. Trust me, I'm a chef. I have a probe thermometer tat goes up to 500 degrees and I will test this tomorrow probably.

Well heres my community service for the year.

With a temperature probe i measrued about 461*c on my nour coals. I'm acutally in the middle of mapping the temperature throughout a normal hookah to aid in the designing of some hookahs. Ill post the full map when its complete. I can only smoke so much a day tongue.gif

I just am realizing how hot that is. I cant find the maximum temp of my prob or meter at the moment so theres a good chance that might not be acurate. Note that this was right against the red hot surface, not a dusty coal. Edited by Stealth
