Re: Noob advice
1) heat management is key, lots of little holes in your foil, and a good moist shisha, letting the bowl "bake" the shisha before smoking is my preference.
2) if you dont mind sporting the cash for it, i myself, like starbuzz. you can always count on a thick smoke, and a unique flavor each time.
3) foil for me, a good 3 or 4 rings of toothpick sized holes, be sure to poke them with the bowl loaded, and poke down to the bottom of the bowl, giving the air a path.
4) the only noob advice! when in doubt... ask someone on the forum!! XD
