Default Best bowl for Starbuzz?

As the title says. I'm trying to figure out the best bowl for SB and I can't figure out which to use. I have a vortex bowl and an egyptian bowl. I found out that the egyptian bowl was the best for AF. Just tried it and it was amazing. Best smoke session I have had yet with AF. Just wondering if the Egyptian bowl would be best for SB because it's juicy like AF. Anything would help. Thanks guys!

I used to smoke it out of a vortex just fine, I imagine it would smoke well out of a crown classic too. If you have a vortex, use it. The spire keeps the foil off of the tobacco.

Yeah as IMC said the vortex works really well for starbuzz. You can smoke it out of an egy just fine, but to keep it a bit cleaner a vortex would be better

In my opinion, the best bowl for Starbuzz is the toilet bowl. Acid Red is the only flavor I still had when I discovered better tobacco that I didn't throw away.

However, when I smoked Starbuzz it smoked better out of my vortex than a Mya. The remainder of my Acid Red I smoked out of a medium phunnel when I had one, which was the best experience. Vortex will smoke just fine if you have one... But if you're buying a new bowl, get a crown micro phunnel or a tangiers small phunnel instead of a vortex.

When I smoke starbuzz, it's out of a vortex.

How come I can't smoke SB out of my vortex? I fluff pack it, make sure that all the holes are visible. Should i double foil it or single? and I use 1 and a half 3K QL setup in a triangle. Is this too much or too less? What else do I need to do because I can't get the clouds and the flavor right.

Try double foil, place the broken QLs in a triangle pattern, if it hurts your throat take off heat, if there is little smoke add heat.

Ha I agree with the toilet but i'm just trying to get the most out of what I have left. Could you please tell me everything about using it with a vortex. How much to put in, hole patterns, how much foil, and how many coals? all i have are QL and I just can't figure it out. Any help would be much appreciated.

The deeper Mya bowl works well. Try lining the bowl with foil. Using a tooth pick, poke the holes through the foil where the bowl holes are. Fill the bowl to just below the rim, or even with the rim (Just not over). Cover. Using the tooth pick, poke about 25 holes in cover foil. When I started smoking hookah, I used a single QL with Starbuzz. That worked just fine. Two nats will work well too.

I still enjoy Starbuzz. I am sooooo very un-cool that way. I wear a Syrian bath robe when I smoke it, just so I can stomach myself.

I never fluff pack in a Vortex... I always fill the the rim and pack it just below the holes, so it's a fairly dense pack.

The best way to smoke Starbuzz is in a mixture. I personally love to mix Starbuzz Purple Acid, Fumari Mimosa, and Fantasia Dragon's Breath.

Dragons Breath and Purple Acid are TERRIBLE by themselves. When you mix them both up and throw some Fumari in the mix though, they're bomb-tacular!

Seriously though, if you want a juicy, fruity flavor that smokes well, go with Fumari. It's a little cheaper and it's two times better quality.

The first time I smoked SB was in my vortex and it worked well for SB. I just loosely added it until the tobacco was to the top of the bowl and gently patted it down until it was just under the spire to keep it off the foil. Then I poked holes in the tobacco where the holes on the spire are. The only other suggestion I have is to learn how to manage heat with SB and the vortex. Trial and error has been my friend

When I went through my starbuzz phase I only had a mod bowl which did the job but judging by other washed and juicy moassels I'd say vortex. What I would do is put three rings of holes around the edge and leave a fair amount of space between the inner ring and the spire.
