I'm planning on sherezade in a phunnel bowl this week. I will be reporting back.
ya i gave up on the phunnel honestly, even a hard pack of nakhla in it i can squeeze 2 rounds of coals out of it thats with a space in there and i use a crap load of tobacco, with the egyptian at least i get the same amount of time and use less and get better results. i do however also usually under pack slightly and smoke times pack it a bit harder than normal and get good results too, so i think a lot of it is just in the heat management as apposed to if its touching or not
