Re: confused. to dry shisha or not to dry it
Not a good idea. While I am not a huge fan of overly drippy tobacco the theory behind they drying is not sound.
Try lighting a bowl of sugar on fire. Now try lighting a bowl of sugar syrup on fire. The way that hookah is smoked has nothing to do with any "fuel" in the tobacco. The moisture in the tobacco and the volatile compounds are vaporized by indirect heat from the coals. The more moisture there is the longer it takes for the tobacco to completely dry out and become unable to produce smoke.
