Default Re: Smoking from a fruit bowl?

Some suggestions from our experience:

1. Poke a few random holes through the fruit skin. In the past when using ripe or juicy fruit with a tough outer skin like lemon the fruit has exploded because all the liquid steamed up and had nowhere to go.

2. Make a hole all the way through the fruit, (we usually use the detachable pipe portion from a hookah stem) then on one side of the hole carve out a large section, equivalent to a standard shisha bowl, and in order to support the shisha run some toothpicks through the bottom of the carved out section in a cross hatch pattern.

3. Be really, really careful when punching the hole or carving. I almost lost a finger once.

Hope this helps. If you want to get real creative we did it with a Pineapple once and that was pretty cool.
