Default New experiment: Nakhla DA + Phunnel Bowl

So, after seeing John's video about packing Nakhla in Tangiers phunnel, I decided to do the same with Nakhla DA. Here is my setup:

- KM Hookah
- KM Hose
- Tangiers Phunnel
- 4 CH Natural Coals yes 4

I didn't sprinkle the moassel but I used the same method of packing Tangiers. I have been smoking for 20 minutes and it is the best smoke I have ever had.

Thanks John

Could you elaborate your technique? Im trying to find more about this tangiers method. Nakhla is about all I smoke so i'd like to try this. I already use 3 coconaras.

Just don't sprinkle the shisha. Something similar to this:

Good job thunder, as a vendor I don't care to sell Nakhla since it's such a cheapo product, I'd rather sell SB all day, however as a smoker Nakhla is in my bowl more than 70% of the time these days. The good thing since it's so cheap most people buy 5 250g at a time.
Glad you like that technique.

I assume this will work on a regular bowl. I use a rather wide bowl, not phunnel or vortex.

How is it that the tobacco just doesn't burn right away, it seems like when I* had overpacked in the past, it would burn immediately.

so you literally like, pack it? like scoop it in kinda tightly, and let it sit over the edge of the bowl?

It'll work fine. Just have lots of coals ready cuz you're gonna be smokin' for awhile.

Like damn near all day.

then sprinkle away my friend! I usually dont use a phunnel unless I've got more than three people, and this technique for more than 5 or 6 I'd guess. I've been to a couple cafes that do this, but heat management is tough with their coals

Good one Thunder. I smoke just about everything Tangiers style -- Nakhla, Salloum, AF, even Desi Murli. Always good results. Then again, I actually smoke Tangiers 75% of the time...

I've heard it theorized that the sprinkled, fluffy packing method was invented by lounge owners who wanted to conserve shisha.

don't quote me, but i think the reason we all got used to sprinkling is so that air can get to the holes at the bottom of a normal bowl. With the funnel or vortex, this doesnt have to happen, so you can back all you want. Also, heat is more evenly distributed, so you wont burn like you would in a normal bowl.

If thats the case, I'm guessing this will not work in a regular bowl. We'll see!
