2 square QL might actually do the trick for tangiers!

i use 2 coconaras and sometimes it still strong (no windcover)
although I poke small pansy holes... lol they should be bigger

all you need is a bowl, some coals and some moassel!! It's all about how u pack and how you manage your heat. Funnel this, CH that is fine but you should have an otherwise fine session w/out such luxuries.

Yeah, try less coal, and make sure you're packing a few mm beneath the foil! crucial!

the dryer the moassel is, the less coal you need,

Also depends on what you're smoking. If you're smoking HH stuff, (Black label included), they're really sensitive about heat. When I'm smoking them, I use one coconara and a windcover and that does it for me. If you feel your starting to get harsh smoke, try taking the coals off and letting the bowl cool down for a few minutes. Just be sure to purge the smoke before drawing again

Don't listen to the people pushing for the "best" products that all the cools kids are using.

Use your normal bowl but tell us what products you are using.

What tobacco?
How much?
What coals?
How many?
Foil or screen?
What kind?

Most smokers never need to buy a funnel or vortex as the standard bowl design has worked for generations and still works today. I love the my funnel but I almost always use one of my two Egyptian clay bowls.

Nope. Just breath from the bottom of the bowl. Where have you been? That's how a real hookah smoker takes his smoke!
