Default what would happen with no tobacco in the bowl?

alright so, i hear all the time that it's actually not the tobacco being smoked,
it's the glycerine, honey, molasses, etc.

so if this is true...what would happen if i got a phunnel bowl and just put honey in it, and just put on coals, and poke holes like a regular bowl? i want to try it but i don't want my phunnel bowl to have burnt carbon all over it.

anyone have the balls to try it?

I think I would do a honey/glycerine mix. You would have to be careful with the heat though, prob burn easy.

i have a piece of shit havana chinese crap-ass piece of shit that i might try it with.
it sounds interesting, maybe i'll try glycerine first, then honey, then molasses,
wash the bowl in the dishwasher, then maybe mix them all together or something.
you could probably get loads of smoke with no flavor.

I'd be curious to see if it actually works. Pick up a bottle of the extract flavorings they use to make candy and add it to the honey/glycerin/molasses to give it flavor.

the honey/glycerin/ moalasses is simply an imulsifier. It allows you to smoke the tobacco w/out actually burning it. However you are still smoking the tobacco.

i dont know about the rest of you but when i smoke a bowl all the way through, everything gets burnt. not ever burnt tasting or anything, just all the tobacco and whatnot is all smoked out. everything ends up crunchy and black when im completely done, as if its all been smoked. i dont think just honey and glycerine will smoke very well if at all, seeing as how tobacco is helping the smoke. the smoke is not purely grom honey/molasses and glycerine.

Right, but the tobacco hasn't been "consumed" in the process, mostly just dried out. Whereas in a cigarette, the tobacco is ash afterwards.

And actually now that photolinger brings up EPIC, i bowled like half a phunnel of the epic glycerin shit into my phunnel with the bowl I packed and it ended up a mess, the glycerin bowled over everywhere, glycerin in the tray, down the stem, HUGE mess.

best way to explain it is like charcoal. charcoal= wood heated until the volatiles in it off gas, same thing we are doing with the tobacco, just off gassing it

ive been thinking about this for a while, never more than a "would it work" but i have wondered. i think it will taste like sallam flavor but missing under tones

i think if you take to tobacco to the point that ALL of the volatiles are gone you will be smoking a lot of really nasty tasting smoke for a while

Its a huge mess with the tobacco in the glycerin tub! So yeah, i imagine it was a horrible experience, almost as bad as actually smoking the tobacco too, but not as bad as realizing you paid for epic.
