Default Re: Vortex bowl + new AF cut = strange smoke

Well I packed AF Vanilla this time (new batch) and over-packed and smooched down - this time w/ slightly longer coals and PT for a grommet I'm getting a MUCH better smoke. It seems packing it heavier will work, although I still kept the amount just below the holes in the center piece (and away from the coals).

Nicer poofy clouds!


EEK! Be careful of over-packing! LOL - this bowl can STILL BURN the tobacco. I smelt burning tobacco and removed the windcover - the bowl was steaming. It's cooling back down to smokable levels, although it's still steaming.

Do phunnels steam (smoke from the top)?
