put your hookah in a bucket and wrap ice packs around the base and fill the rest of the space on the sides with ice

as said above but instead of just ice a lot of salt and water to get even colder. if you want even more extreme replace all that with just dry ice in the bucket around the base. becareful though you base can blow up so if you have an acrylic base use it. if you go with dry ice please do it with a window open or outside because you will get more co2 than normal in the air so its a little iffy.

also beware that there is a point where smoke is too cold to where the point it almost "burns" your lungs.

hey, boom, did you really try dry ice?
A few days ago i had a good laugh with a guy who wanted to chill his smoke using LN2
LN2 has temps around -175c. It can litterally freeze you.

Dry ice is also around -80c if am not mistaken, which can still cause damage to your lungs. I'd not suggest any of those.
Last time i put my hose in the freezer (-12c) i got a soarthroat for the next 2 weeks. I'd not suggest any of these.

i never tried it but i heard some people who said they tried it and it worked well for them. as i said it is dangerous and it can burn you. sorta like how they say if you touch dry ice its so cold it burns, same basic concept on what your inhaling. its not as cold but it gets close to there and it can hurt. its iffy because of the extra co2 that would be in the air. your already getting tons from the coals so smoking with both is worse ofcourse.

put your hose in the freezer for 20 minutes, that works wonders!

Once in awhile, dependind on what I'm smoking, I'll fill my vase w/about 3/4" of water and freeze it. Then fill to normal level with cold water. This way there is a solid piece of ice at the bottom of the vase.

you could break your vase if the temp changes too quicky! Avoid putting hot coal next to the vase if its frozen or put it in the freezer if you 've washed it with hot water.
My old lebanese vase shuttered into pieces when i washed it with hot water and then froze it.

I've always wanted to make a hookah fridge. My old college fridge, which was slated for the experiment, crapped out on me, so I'll have to get a different one.

Should be like making a hookah table, with the vase inside the fridge. Should smoke cool as long as you'd like and have enough room for a case of beer.

I do two things for an extra cold smoke (or when it's 100+ outside)

1. stick the whole thing in a cooler full of ice
2. using an ice crushing blender blend ice an water until you get a slush a little like a frozen margarita.
