Re: No foil ?
some people do it
my girlfriends dad said this is how they used to do it when he smoked hookah in *forgot the location*. He said they would pack the bowl, drill a hole through the middle and then sit the coal on top. Cant imagine it tasting good.
I have had shisha with no foil before. it was a different kind from what i normally smoke but the guy didnt put foil. The result was a very ncotine full smoke with extremely thin clouds. I didnt like it and have never done it again.
