Default Good Bowl to smoke Desi Murli

Ok...I got my order of DM last Friday and tracked down a bottle of vegetable glycerin. Now I need to know whats a good bowl to use. I remember seeing somewhere a small funnel with a mod is good but I want another option that is smaller. I figured something smaller wider and shallow would be the best option so I combed through my bowl collection and narrowed it down to these contestants.

a. A small Mya Bowl
b. Two Egyptian Bowls (Lt and Drk Brown)
c. Two Bowls I got from John with my Thabet Yunis and the replacement stem. (Lt and Drk Blue) Dark Blue one is about 3/4" deep
d. A small Tangiers Funnel with or without a mod.

Pictures of the bowls are included except the funnel, if you a member of this forum and don't know what a small funnel bowl looks like... then shame on you

That light blue one looks like it should work pretty well. I've never smoked DM so my opinion may not be worth much, but I believe that's close to what is recommended.

I'm not too sure, but I will say that I don't think the Mya bowl will be good and if I had to guess I'd go with the dark blue one.

Never smoked my DM out of anything but an Egyptian bowl, I need to try it in my vortex... Sounds like something I should do tonight. Thanks for the idea.

I think our resident expert, Hajo Flettner, recommeds you use a vortex or a phunnel with mod. so.... yeah. I am sure anything will work just fine though...

I use a vortex with 4 naturals to start and 3 to smoke without any additives.

Does it smoke well without any glycerin? The stuff I have is a bit dry so I think the glycerin is needed. Really the cut cut of this stuff surprised me, reminds me of potting soil.

smokes great with no preservatives. i threw mine in an air tight container and into the fridge. it got a little moist from the cold and it took about 5 min to fully fire up with medium clouds.

Yeah I just ordered mine. Tried mixing with nakhla earl grey but the nakhla was way too predominant...

Smoked it straight w/o additives but wasn't that impressed. Used my tiny egyptian bowl & two CH coals too.

But I don't get the amazing taste from the spicy apple...nor the killer buzz... not that I need the buzz haha

To be honest I wasn't impressed either with my first 2 bowls. Wasn't getting enough heat with 3 coals and a windcover, threw on a 4th coal without the cover and it made a world of difference. Infact, now that I come to think of it, I never brought it down to 3 coals like I mentioned earlier. 4 is the way to go with a vortex.

I'm yet to try a smaller egyptian bowl, but I got perfect smoke from the vortex

Having tried both the vortex and standard Egyptian and I have to say that the vortex winds hands down. The standard egyptian got too harsh too quickly but did provide more smoke. This being said with the lighter smoke I enjoy the tastes more, and its less harsh than the thicker cigar like smoke.

I've never had good results smoking DM out of typical Egyptian style bowl. What i've found to work the best are: the Super Chief, a small funnel with a scalli mod or a vortex.
You can order DM from Kamal of Hookah1.com. I posted all of his contact info in a recent post in the vendor intro section. They are re-building the website and it should be back up later this week.

I have been smoking DM for a year now and have had the best luck with a medium funnel, no mod at all. Its all I use for DM.

I've smoke Desi out of my Lebanese bowl (similar to your first pic) and my Vortex. Both worked fine. Hookah1 and Texas Hookah sell Desi. Hooka1 however sells it in bigger portions.
