Default Packing, someone should say something...

So guys, i have been smoking for some years, i have been arround for a while here and in my effort to evolve, i keep hearing stuff i dont know about and its hard to find....

So to get to the point, i know a little about packing overpacking etc.. but someone should start a thread to explain, is fluff packing the same as spinkle packing? and allthough i know most of them are self explanatory, someone should show with pictures and make it sticky for everyone trying to join....

As of now i have heart:
Dense packing

Sprinkle packing(i guess its the same as fluff packing?)

overpacking

underpacking...

Dense packing: pack tobacco in the bowl above the rim, then tamp it down so its below the rim by the depth of quarter (were you to lay it flat on the tobacco). Tangiers, Desi Murli, and Nakhla perform well when thusly packed.

Fluff packing: sure "sprinkle" packing, same thing. Works best for pretty much every thing else.

Overpacking: pack the bowl so theres as much tobacco above the rim of the bowl as there is in the bowl, smoosh it down a bit and foil it. It'll look like a mound. i really only overpack Nakhla.

Underpack: too little tobacco in the bowl to perform adequately. Not recommended for anything.

As for pics..... use your imagination.

Hope that helps.

Lol. You didnt ask about that..... i do that occasionally. I Sometimes find Nakhla to have a cut that i find " unwieldy" ( thick or broad). I use an ulu ( inuit knife with a curved blade) to give it a good slice, dice and or julienne. I also chop up stems and smoke them sons a biches.

its not rocket science there is too much bullshit surrounding smoking hookah, get a decent clay bowl throw your tobacco in and add coal. its not hard. i throw whatever i am smoking in the bowl push it down so its just under the rim and add foil. i don't count the holes or worry about what way down the foil go's. and each and every bowl is just fine.

Sure, but how many holes do I use when both sides of the foil are shiny?
