Re: phunnel or vortex!!!!
I've got a phunnel, and I hardly ever use it.
Don't get me wrong, it works fine, it's just that when I'm smoking alone I can't really justify the use of 3+ coals and 25+ Grams of tobacco in a single go.
I haven't noticed a significant enough difference between it and your classic egyptian bowl to warrent the huge amount of coals and tobacco consumed.
