Re: should i use a bowl with a chimney?
My limited experience with this bowl so far is that one coal (I use Shishaco) split in half does the job if it's closed. I like it a lot.
I also discovered that the top will close if you turn the screen upside down. I like turning the screen upside down because because it gets the coals up a tiny bit higher off the shisha. If you do this, you'll have to rotate the tab on the screen away from the latch or it won't close. Well, mine wouldn't.
