I experimented with it today, I was not sure if it would be an epic win or an utter fail, I was leaning towards the latter for a few reasons - size of Ch coals, amount of heat the Mini phunnel seems to transfer to shisha, no Mod, and using molasses with Desi for the first time.
Well, I mixed the molasses in, put it in the bowl, and decided that it would be better to be safe than sorry so I used this - http://www.hookahpro.com/forum/showthread.php?t=9648
- Modification of the phunnel to keep the foil up and not having to poke a hole in the middle (Desi ain't Tangiers).
The smoke started up very quickly, and the flavor was much sweeter thanks to the molasses, and i seem to like sweet notes in my tobacco smoking in all aspects. I have found a new way to smoke Desi without having to scrap the tiny bit of it I usually do. I can smoke this bowl to the end in about 30 minutes or less. For those of you who were lucky enough to score a Mini, Desi works great in it!
