Re: how do you get huge clouds with the first hit
I use 3 coconaras on my bowls (vortex, small phunnel, egyptian, doesn't really matter) along with a windcover to start it off, let it sit there and get heated for about 5 minutes and you get big clouds, just watch the heat management after it's hot and ready.
Basically copious amounts of heat will give you huge clouds on the first hit, but without proper heat management you'll burn your bowl alot faster.
