Re: Harsh Smoke
If it starts out nice, and ends up being harsh, not lasting long, the biggest reason behind this, I've found, is that you are burning and not steaming the tobacco.
If you undo the foil, and see under the foil, and there is charred tobacco stuck to the foil. Then you are burning the tobacco.
All you need to do is pack the bowl w/ less tobacco, it shouldnt touch the foil, it should have space.
try this out before getting another bowl...
lets just go ahead and say, the only time you want to use a vortex or a phunnel is w/ really wet tobacco, when you dont want to let the juices drip down the stem. Those bowls arent special at all.
