Re: will this be good?
I've had good experiences using juices in the base.
I usually use something similar to what I'm smoking, when I use peach or apricot I usually use orange juice in the base (usually 60/40 juice/water) and it has greatly added to the flavour.
I know it's definitely enhanced my smoking session because I've used Tropicana orange juice and that has a very distinct flavour that I can taste when I smoke.
No idea about the apple bowl, I think it'd just be too cumbersome to make it if you can only use it once and I think juice in the base would contribute more to the overall flavour anyway.
My advice would be to use a very potent, flavourful juice.
