Default Cool your smoke?

Any thoughts? I do it sometimes, I like it, but I don't have an ice maker so its a pain in the ass. Plus, it doesnt last through the whole bowl.

How long ice in the vase lasts has a great deal to do with the thickness of the glass. Since I use high quality Egyptian and Syrian vases my smoke remains cool even after an hour of smoking. With an ice chamber my whole stem is cool to the touch.

I voted for most of the time...but it's more like sometimes, because 99% of the time I'm smoking outdoors where there is no ice available to me. I like it though, it gives the smoke a nice smooth, cool feeling on the way in. I'm not too sure that it improves flavor, but w/e...

Every time, even if we have to run to the store to buy ice. I like thick smoke, but hate harsh smoke.

i only voted "i dont see the point" because though the smoke is a little cooler on the inhale, that was about the only thing i noticed, and we had ice and plastic ice cubes in the base with 2 ice packs wrapped around it

I make a gallon of ice water, my frig is mighty cold.
My vase holds almost the whole gallon - because of the volume it stays cooler longer plus the thinkness of the vase as well.

Makes a notable different in the taste of the smoke IMO

But only most of the time. If I smoke twice in one day, I only have enough ice water to chill the smoke once a day.

I normally don't add ice, mostly becasue either it won't fit or the trays are empty (BF is a pain @ refilling them).

BUT... since I have 2 of the same vase, I keep one in the fridge 24/7 and a container of water with it. That way, I'll have a chilled set-up anytime I want (or ateast ice cold water). Seems to work great and the chilled base does seem to stay colder longer than just filling it with ice.

Don't try this trick with THIN WALLED BASE JARS! It will Crack them due to thermal differences! Thick Egyptian jars, heavier bohemian, and the lot are the best.
