Re: smoke thickness help
I pack my pyrex vortex bowl differently then I do my clay vortex. So which do you have? My opinion is try to use less tobacco and densely pack it against the spire in the middle. I usually get about an 2 hour smoke session with about 20-25 grams of tobacco with one natural belgian coal. Good clouds and flavor all the way till the coal dies. My vote, less tobacco, and densely pack it against the spire. It looks weird and sounds weirder but it works extremely well and saves me a crapload of tobacco.
