Re: My first Tangiers
I recently came back from a trip to California and hung out with Eric for four days at his lounge. After reviewing the packing method over and over, and smoking a ton of Tangiers Noir, I definitely have it down. My preferred method is 4 coconut halves with a small phunnel, then add golden canary or a similar type coal as you need it. When packing the tobacco, you pack it dense and to a smidge above the rim. I acclimate for about 3 to 4 hours. If the smoke gets too harsh, drop a coco halve and add it again when you need it. I have a whole new appreciation for Tangiers.
