Clearly it is not a bad idea, because he said the smoke was more flavorful and was a tad bit mellow in comparison to his average smoke.

If I feel like experimentating (I'm lazy), and I think about it whilst I am preparing, I might give it a shot! That is alot of work for the benefits that you get. At least that is what it sounds like to me.

I am pretty much content with my tap water 1/3rd exotica on the bowl. Good flavor and good smoke content, but I can see how it might improve smoke quality and flavor.

He says he takes a quart sized bowl with 1 inch of water in the bottom. Definitely not submerging the tobacco in any way. Unless of course he put it upside down which is unlikely. You put it in steaming water and it rises up through the bowl is what he is trying to say I think.
