2) Has anyone ever invented a coal-free way of smoking? Say, by using a bowl which could be heated, like an oven, to a certain constant temperature, and which would then evenly cook the shisha rather than burning it.

These might be stupid questions, but they've been bugging me.
if someone makes such a bowl, I am buying for whatever price !
