Re: Smoking from a clay bowl?
just so long as the shisha isn't touching the foil, and there's not too much heat, it shouldn't burn at all... i started with an egyptian, and moved to the vortex, and from there went to the phunnel. Of course i like the phunnel, but when it's going to be a smaller session, i just load up my egyptian. Just punch a uniform mesh pattern in the foil, nothing too special, and don't hold back with the holes, the more holes the cooler the shisha. Then try just putting one coal on, usually i use one ******* Hookah QL and move it around the edge of the rim, and after about an hour or so of smoking you can put a fresh coal in the center... this should provide you with at least 1.5 hours of decent smoke
