Default Re: how do you get huge clouds with the first hit

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.
I agree with SonOfGram on this one! That is my setup too!

You could try some better coals, a good natural coal (Coconara, Exotica, Starlight, etc) Put you windcover on and go make yourself some tea. Come back and smoke, first pull or second will be tasty and fluffy clouds!

Here is an example:
.. I setup my bowl, placed my coals on, and then got some tea made before shooting the video. Came back, about 5 minutes later, and had about one to two pulls to prime the hookah. Then I shot the video. So the smoke you see is number three and four pull. The smoke is very full and fluffy, but I have a ceiling fan on low and that dissipated the smoke, but you can still see that they are some nice clouds

Good Luck! Let us know how it goes ..
