Re: Curious about...
Okay, got the pistachio, and my response is thus: Not bad, but not mind-blowing. It suffered from a severe lack of flavor, there was only a mild sort of aroma to it. A good aroma, but only a ghost of actual flavor.
Pretty sure I'm doing something wrong. I've been smoking hookah for years and used the same setup I do for pretty much everything else. Here goes:
32 inch KM
Just water in the bottle. Cooler than room temp, not cold.
Teeny-tiny egyptian bowl.
Was using nour finger charcoal. When I used a big chunk it started burning, but smaller ones didn't give off much flavor.
Foil with a decent distribution of small holes, with larger holes around the edge.
Any advice from the nakhla crowd?
