Default how to get thick smoke!

well seing is how alot of you have been very helpfull on this forum and i tried to search and didnt find much i was just wondering how you guys get all that thick smoke like to hide your face and all? do you take like a big ass hit or what?? lol i heard that having ice in your base helps but that hasnt done much for me and i allready got down smoke rings and such so i wanted to figure out how to do that too... could it also depend on the type of shisha you use?? im sorry if this isnt in the right thread .

smoke thickness depends on alot of thing. Brands of shisha, rig usig, coals, strength & length of draw.

Many good brands of shisha will produce good smoke, so rarely is that the problem. Often the heat management is key issue - how much (too little) and placement of the coals on the bowl.

Also, smaller hookahs may produce less smoke due to space - less space, less smoke (also hotter and harsher smoke in really small hookah - 15" and less).

Also, if the hookah isn't air-tight, you won't get good smoke.

Alot of things can alter the smoke quaility.

Some good brands that produce excellant smoke: Al Fakher, StarBuzz, Al Waha, Nakhla as well as others.

Ive found that packing a bowl too tight will not allow me to get "clouds" at all.

Heat management is key.

besides heat management/how you set up your bowl and all that other stuff one trick is to add milk to the vase to make THICK smoke. Please note you only add VERY little milk.....

you can also use Coconut Milk... I added a whole can of that stuff to my Mya Gyro and filled the rest with water and the smoke is impressing. I'm smoking it right now

Well here is what I do to get thick smoke. I pack a loose bowl almost to the brim, but not where it will burn. (Pay close attention to your heat management!!!!). I usually put ice in the base, i make holes in my foil with the poker rod that comes with the tongs and i usually get huge clouds I hope this helps

If you really want a cloud of smoke, and don't care about impact on your lungs/throat. I have your solution. Once your hookah is smoking well, take off the coal, blow on it until it is red hot everywhere and then remove the screen or foil. Put the coal right on the shisha a brace yourself for a harsh huge hit.
