I keep my base in the fridge, and put my hose in a while before smoking. You can't really make the smoke cold, but you can make it smoother. Also, add some mint to give any flavor a menthol taste.

What I do is:

Put a lot of ice cubes in the base and some mint pastilles.
Then I mix some of my favorite tobaco with some mint too.

This will keep the smoke cool and fresh for a whole session!

I live in AZ, so it warms up quick here, even in the house with AC on.

I use a lot of ice in my bottle, more than water. And despite what some people are saying, a pinch of salt doesn't hurt, I've been doing it for years. Maybe it depends on the thickness of the glass? The only bottle I ever broke was one that got dropped (Damn idiot friends.).

Using less tobacco in the bowl might help too. If you have it packed in there real tight it tends to burn hotter.

I seriously doubt the additional few degrees cooler that salt water will be will make any noticeable difference in smoke temperature. I also doubt that the few degrees will cause "temperature shock" to break the glass. Its not like adding salt makes the temperature suddenly and rapidly drop. Now...if you have ice water in your base and then pour it out and fill it with hot water, have fun picking up the pieces.

you will not crack a base if you dont SHOCK it, hence thermal SHOCK. 40-50*difference should really shock it to crack the glass unless there is built up stress from it not being made well in the first place, but if that stress is there tapping it right with metal or another piece of glass will break it too. usually i hear of people breaking their vases when they "drop" ice into it so it makes me think its a lot more of a physical shock as apposed to thermal shock


as to how to make your smoke cold, move to alaska in the winter

if your getting your smoke to start to feel really cold you will be losing a lot of flavor, i agree that it is better to go with mint but you need to get the right flavor of mint to get a cool sensation

Freeze the coals as someone has said already.


But you should def. add a couple of ice cubes in the water and should be fine for some time.

oh man see what you do is get a bucket and make a gold coil as copper isnt conductive enough in it then hook that up to your hookah and then the hose into the bucket then heres the best part you fill that up with liquid helium, and after you manage to contain its awesome superfluidness(is that even a word) then you will get the coldest smoke possible at about -452 F give or take!!

Ever try eating or sucking on ice when smokeing the smoke has to pass the ice before hitting the lungs gives a nice last cooling effect

You should pack your hookah in crushed ice or snow, freeze your hose, put ice in the base, get a hookah with a chiller, put 96% isopropil alcohol and dry ice with salt in the chiller, and sit in a walk in freezer while smoking a mint tobacco

Yeah i have a walk in freezer/cooler at my work if you want to stop by WA state. You might have to bring a snow machine though, i live in western, not eastern WA.
IMO Absolute Zero adds a soothing mint feel without any strong mint taste... i imagine a pinch of that might be nice.

Me and xH00k4hxSn1p3rx were smoking one day, he put the base, and the downstem in the freezer, and used ice water. It kept it cold for about 15-20 mins the it gradualy got warmer. Try it, it warms up slow enough that you get used to it not being cold

I just add a ton of ice to the vase and it's all good. It also has a lot to do with managing the coals. As long as you move the coals regularly and put a good amount of ice in the base, you should be pulling in cool smoke. Only time the smoke gets hot for me is when it's time to rotate the coals.

On my setup I put a lot of crushed ice in the vase and I almost always wash my hose and immediately stick it in the freezer. Coolest and smoothest smoking session every time.

If its warm around the hose, the smoke will generally be warm is what I've noticed. On a hot day outside, or next to my fire pit, the smoke will get pretty hot even with almost pure ice higher than normal in the base. You could try finding a way to better insulate the hose, so that it is less affected by the outside conditions (foil tape, insulation, etc.). Also you are at a disadvantage with such long hoses in a hot environment, the shorter the hose, the less time theoretically for the heat to be exchanged.

Hose in the freezer might work, but I doubt for very long.. Maybe you can wrap part of the hose (closer to your end the better I'd assume) with the blue ice packs and maybe that would help. maybe someone needs to make the ice bowl concept for the hose of a hookah, it'd be heavy but provide a cooler smoke. people like a thick handle you could just make it so you insulate the outside, leave the inside uninsulated to the inner hose, and make it a handle. any ideas?
