Exclamation Salloum (Taste like Cigar, NOT CIGS!)




Puff is short but man the buzz is hard. This is taken in Malaysia. USD$2.00 per session.

I sometimes smoke my Zagloul/ plain salloum in this fashion. Definitely not for the faint of heart. Looks like a KM btw.

damnit i got ninja'd, haha.

So I'm curious, do many people actually smoke like this? is there a reason for it, or just a culturally different method?

I've never seen someone smoke like that before, I've heard of Moassel Salloum, but usually in traditional bowls w/foil.

I am a huge fan of black style moassels and Salloum plain is something smoke pretty regularly. However, I have found that smoking it the way you show is hot, harsh and not to pleasant. The method i've written about has given me much better results with a rich, heavy and full bodied taste. Personally I don't find Salloum or any other moassel actually tastes like a cigar but that is fine since it's not supposed to.

Hahaha, yea, it was quite an experience but I would never smoke it again. Cause like I mention before, the buzz, makes me seriously sleepy plus with our warm climate, I'm sweating.

About the setting, it doesn't have one, no, you just put the tobacco and there you go, that's your setting, bottoms up my friend. XD!

About the smoke, don't expect it to be like our typical flavoured tobacco, this thing isn't really that wet, just moist. So the smoke is pretty much similar when you are smoking a cigarette or cigar. Its not harsh either just too dry when you inhale too much of it.

Overall, this is recommended for people who loves buzz and nothing but the buzz. The arabs loves it and they claim its for MEN while they say flavoured tobacco is for woman. Damn!

Well frankly I never got the coals on the moassel thing. When I see Arabs/Kurds/Persians or whatever smoke moassel they always use foil or screens. The only time I see anyone put the coals on the directly is with tombac. Basically the reson I adovocate re-moisturizing Zaghlouol/Salloum plain and such is that since the stocks we in the West can get have sat aroun for too long they tend be dried out. In the Middle East that sort of thing is always a good deal less dried out so you can basically just chuck it in the bowl without any extra work.

Anyway, give both my method and the coals on top method a try and see which one works better for.

Haha, its okay man, its just a 1 time try for me and my friend. So basically we are not really into it. Its just a rough review since so far I've not heard people smoking this kind of traditional type of hookah. Cause I understand, foil it not a luxury that they can find anywhere in those rural mid-east place.

My friend have tried the metal screen which uses the same sort of tobacco that we're talking about. Yea, more better of course, but than again, its just different tradition I guess. In the end, Hookah comes in so many different ways, we can't actually comfirm that Pattern 'X' is the best pattern for all.

Hey good for you man, you're trying new stuff and venturing off the fruity reservation so more power to you!

You are right that no single method exists for doing anything. From what I have seen of the rural Middle East/Central Asia people smoke mostly tombac and when they do smoke moassel or jurak they are much more likely to use a screen then foil. But you are right that a single way of doing things is not best for all. My method is just something that works for black moassel that has been sitting around for too long which is a little different then how it is out East.

Anyhow, give both ways a shoot and tell me how it works. Also if you have question about set up I can give you pointers or what ever.

I was smoking some salloum plain and when my coals got small I decided to try it like this... I lasted like two minutes before it got out of my league. I don't know how some people do that!
