kal is absolutely right! cooler smoke makes for a diminished flavor.And the fact is, ice in the base is just fine.Smoke is not so hot as to make your water warm.A half dozen ice cubes in the base and your water should stay cool for the majority of your session. Personaly, I only use tap water in my vase.
And thefact is, while this is theorheticly, a good idea, it's an accident waiting to happen.Do you really think you could strap this onto a KM stem(most kms are simply a stainless downstem w/hollow shapes welded around it, making them very lite.) and not have the rig tip over? keep in mind there willl be a hose attached as well.
I don't mean to be a wet blanket. I wholeheartedly support new inovations regarding our hobby. I just have doubts regarding this one in particular.
