You also might want to check out Hajo Flettner's thread on making ma'assel. It has a very good recipe that one can work with.
i believe there are some recipes for making your own shisha tobacco that involve SOME pipe tobacco in the process.. but not a whole lot. If you really want to try some "tobacco" tasting shisha tobacco than Coyotero's suggestions will put you in the right direction.
