Default Phunnels from South Smoke?

I can't really find much info on these bowls, are they the legit phunnels, or do different people make these?

How do these work compared to the others?

That particular funnel bowl is chinese. I have a chinese funnel and a tangiers funnel bowl. If you don't go larger than a small with a chinese funnel it will do just fine. After that they just get way to big and ugly IMO.

actuallly the only chinese phunnel that do work is the large ( IMO ) .. the small is too small and gets overheated quickly.. large is the one I have gotten to work.. but to compare them to genuine tangiers phunnel bowls is not possible.. they get too hot ... its not a phunnel I recommend to anyone..

in the beginning i thought chinese phunnel bowls were a good cheap alternative, however after using a few i decided they are not worth the money. not only that, everyone who thinks they are smart in this industry, ie folks at SB, think that they can take an american product and just go to china and mass produce. only thing they accomplished was adding more "junk" to this industry. yes you will get it to smoke but it will not smoke well nor conduct heat well. they are just copies of a shape but they can't copy the materials used, not yet anyways.

Chinese phunnels aren't very good as mentioned above, plus some give a taste as well, and burn 2 hot

let me make this clear though, i am not bad mouthing any vendors who carry these products, there is a market for them and it's their decision. i have met the SS owner a couple of times and he's a stand up guy. however, i am free to bad mouth products that i see as junk.

John.. You have every right to tell your opinion just as a normal forum user even though you are a vendor yourself.. If u dont like a product you dont have to excuse yourself in my opinion..
the chinese bowls are crap and thats just the way it is..
if people want to buy them its not wrong of the vendors to keep them in stock..

If john says they're crap, then I can only assume they're crap. Thanks for the post John.
