So I've been waiting on my hookah to come in and it finally got here today. Its a mya acrylic with a small tangiers funnel. I'm using some ******* natural coals (thanks to john for the quick shipping) and al fakher.
I smoked my first bowl tonight, I filled half the bowl with cafe latte, foiled over it, and put 2 coals on it and a little dome of foil over them as a cheap wind shield. I wound up getting probably a solid hour and 15 minutes of good smoke, and another 15 minutes of decent smoke as long as I took longer hits. Is that about how long I should get from the coals? Whats a fully loaded small bowl get you? 3 hours of smoke with a coal change in the middle?
