Default In Search of a Tangiers Master

So I've tried to acclimate it, pack it properly, watched the videos, done it all again, and it still tastes so much worse than I've been led to believe... my conclusion is there are too many variables for me to do it without some type of mentor. So I'm puttin out the call to anyone in the general LBC/north OC area who knows how to smoke tangiers and is willing to teach me, of course I could provide everything, you just bring your skills, anyone game?

Hey look, a Tangiers doesn't work for me post. I've never seen one of these before. Sorry but these posts are getting old. There are plenty of "how to" Tangiers posts here.

I tried Tangiers and found that I have no skill for it. Maybe in a few years but not right now.

I'll stay with Nakhla.

There are too many posts asking how to do tangiers properly, HOWEVER, this one had a special request, in that they are seeking someone to meet up with them and show them personally. Therefore an old thread would probably not suffice for this purpose.

You guys and your conspiracy theories are getting ridiculous. Post after post after post with accusatory remarks. You'd think this was a Kennedy Magic Bullet or Area 51 forum!

I go to Tangier's about once a months and got the idea of filming Eric packing it and explaining it at the same time so that I could post it on youtube. The only thing is I forget to take my camera since I came up with the idea. I will try to get that done.
I agree the process is really complicated however it seems to work for me and it's simple to me. I think it depends on the climate you are in but I just don't feel like trying to figure it all out.

I have also heard that Eric doesn't like pictures of his place being taken. When I went in his lounge about 3 months ago, he specified that no pictures are aloud? I hope he lets you for all of our sakes!!!

When Phantastik comes back from Laos Friday, the two of us will try and do a video about packing Tangiers.

There are already plenty on the web if you know where to look...

That being said, if John is able to video tape Eric (more like his hands)
packing Tangiers and making a few statement about his product, then I think it would do wonders for alot of the people who initially have problems.

Most def. I was there when Eric packed it so I have a good idea but I live in Arizona and it doesn't quite acclimate correctly.

thanks braded, that was my rational for starting a new post...


My hookah set up is:

Mya Pyramid 24"

nammor hose

I've tried tangiers in the small phunnel and the clay phunnel... no difference

CH natural coals

little ice in the base with cold water

I'm located in Long Beach, of course at this point I'd be willing to drive just about anywhere, (might even go to SD if I find the time) to learn.

thanks for the video/thread links but I've been scouring this for a while (i think i might have johns packing video memorized), i guess, for me at least, this is just one of those hands-on learning deals....

Sadly Brad they, the bashers, didn't bother reading into the post. They stopped at the "Tangiers" in the topic and proceeded to dump. And it IS a conspiracy, and Dunkel is the leader. He is secretly trying to get his homemade Nettle line of shisha out there.

Please leave these NahklaPro.Com moderaters alone. They don't have time
to fully read Tangiers threads because they are too busy making reviews on Tangiers after incorrectly smoking it, as well as hating on the product and the company owner for "personal reasons". Way to lead by example guys!
