Not that very many people here are unaware, but for the poor folks scouring google, I thought I'd share this.
My medium Tangiers phunnel bowl packed with Tangiers Static Starlight (which is excellent, by the way) was lit up last night about 10pm for a party. The hookah was packed up and put away at roughly 4am. With the help of a windscreen, we burned through only three sets of Coconara coals.
Here's what I found when I cleaned out the bowl this morning:
After five hours of near constant smoking there was still
smokeable tobacco in the bottom of the bowl. I'm guessing it might've gone for another hour, maybe more.
So, at this point, I can't think of any reason why anyone doesn't have these bowls yet.
