Default Bowl Filling

Can anyone tell me where can I find any videos or post the links of videos that show a good bowl filling (A really neat and accurate one) of a MYA Bowl, for a MYA QT Hookah??

I don't know if I'm being to "precise" about what I want with the video but I really want a good explanation because the times I've done hookah with my friend they've been the ones that have filled the bowl. BUT now I have my own hookah....the little MYA QT...but I really want to get the most of first experiences so I can keep on learning and eventually make my own choices...

Please a good basic accurate tutory is what I need to start off with the right foot....and in a near future get a bigger better Hookah...

Thanks!!

J

just lightly sprinkle it in the bowl spread it around but dont pack it in, make sure its just a little under the rim of the bowl. put the foil shiny side down and poke random holes all around with a tooth pick or tac. light ur coals (make sure theres no more black) and ut them on the edge of the bowl not in the middle and enjoy.

I agree with harry... except i do rings of holes not just random. It's more of a consistency thing. It doesn't really make a difference though.

Hey harry sorry if I'm being too bitchy but what do you mean when you say "but dont pack it in", and when u say "make sure its just a little under the rim of the bowl." please be more graphic about this since I'm not a native american some things I don't understand them so well...

I'd appreciate ur help..

when u "pack" the bowl your not really packing it in just sprinkling it in and not pushing it down into the bowl (as in actually "packing" it haha kinda backwards). if you fill the bowl to the rim or above it the foil will touch the tobacco when you put the coals on and start to burn it wich makes it harsh, not taste nice, and make you cough.

He means don't just put in a bunch of shisha and push it down tightly, you want to take a little bit of it at a time and lightly drop it in making sure it's distributed in the bowl evenly (or darn close to it). Here's a video that should help a bit:

You can go on youtube and type in "how to pack shisha" or "how to pack a hookah bowl" and you'll find a lot of useful videos.

I'm glad you posted this question because I know that I'm repeatedly screwing it up. I think I'm getting better, but once the bowl is "dead" I open it up to find sheesha that's not quite burned but, what, caramelized? on top and what's underneath looks good. Saving what's below and trying to smoke it hasn't gone well! I think I just keep trying to put too much in and although I sprinkle it in, I think I'm still underestimating how loosely I can sprinkle it in and how little sheesha I have to use.

Everyone always says keep the shisha below the rim of the bowl. I have always done this myself yet on every video on bowl filling they go over the rim... Whats up with that?

Is it that an hour + isn't enough of a smoke? Just trying to get another 10 minutes in? Is it just me or does that last smiley look Asian?

<<< asian

as long as the foil doesnt touch the tobacco youl be fine
and keep in mind that the foil will sag from the weight of the coals + the drag

what ive found works well if your looking for a slightly longer session is packing it in a lttle tighter
and then using a toothpick to discover the holes so you get airflow
its kinda tricky at first and tobacco will fall through the holes but it helps

Default Re: Bowl Filling

I finally solved my own bowl filling problems simply by adding a homemade Scalli mod to my Phunnel and doubling the HD foil I was using. Really did the trick. Plus I punch the holes before I put the foil over the bowl. I do this by laying the two layers of heavy duty foil over the bowl and pressing lightly so I get an outline of the outside of the bowl then I lay the foil on an oven mitt to poke the holes. Then I put it back on the bowl, nice and snug. This way my foil is staying nice and taut throughout smoking sessions.

Still just lightly sprinkling in the shisha, layering it gently, and only tapping down bits and pieces just enough so that it all stays just under the rim of the bowl.

uhh yea tobbaco will fall through the holes but its gonna get stuck in the water so you aint gonna suck it up through the tube plus its another good reason so clean the stem so it doesent get clogged with tobbaco TAR+small pieces of tobbacco=clogged stem.
