Default OK I finally decided to watch some HP vids

I watched a few of the vids,like how to pack different bowls and tobacco's and what not and I'm pretty blown away At how things are done around here.

What you guys must be joking.Please tell me that you guys don't actually pack your bowl like that.

Now I'm not gonna claim that I'm the greatest hookah master of all time.But I have been smoking hookah for 14 years and learned from my good egyptain freinds long ago.And no one sprinkles nakhla or even Al fahker.And yes the tobacco is supposed to touch the foil.

I was really shocked by the vids.No wonder so many people want to add something to the water or use a fruitbowl or do some other trick to get more flavor from there hookah.Its because there not packing there bowls right. LOL.

sorry this is funny to me don't take it personal.

and double funny the comments for the vids going right along confirming it LOL!

um...... not to sound like a douche.... but you sound like a douche. I never let my tobacco touch the foil because when i do it burns and tastes like an ashtray. As for sprinkling and all that... it really doesnt matte rthat much as long as there is decent airflow...

However, the next time you feel like insulting the community as a whole i would suggest you just tuck that little idea away and laugh at our "stupidity" on your own.

although i can second your opinion killerB i wanna hear what he has to say.
if we're doing it wrong by all means give us a walkthrough on YOUR method or the RIGHT method handed down to you from the egyptians you speak of.
please show me, i'd love to try and further my hookah smoking experiences

wow, just wow. If you don't agree with the info shown in the videos that's fine but they have always done fine by me and i have found them to be very helpful. In the end it all comes down to how you like to set up YOUR hookah, just seems to be rude.

lulz.

I have been smoking hookah for over 3 years... My parents have been smoking for over 15.

Now, I learned from them and others..AND it is common sense to not let your foil touch your shisha. If you do you will have burnt shisha and bad flavor. i always underpack nakhla and i bet i can get better clouds than anybody here. Including flavor.

Nakhla can manage heat pretty well. You sprinkle in a little, not a lot. and gently pack it down.

If you think we do it wrong make your own video and prove us wrong. Or actually make a video that we can all laugh at

You could have stated that you pack your bowl differently than the way you saw on the videos, without taking a shot at the whole community, but you didn't.

You could have explained how you pack a bowl or even better made a video showing your bowl packing technique, without criticizing those that took their time to make a video and share their technique, but you didn't.

It would be nice, in the future if you feel the need to make a post like this that you put forth some effort of your own. No need to ridicule and make fun of those who share their knowledge (whether you agree with how they do things or not) with our community.

twoapplesplease .. go ahead and make a vid for us all then! Enlighten us all with your infinite wisdom. But I can tell you right now, if you setup your bowl the way that most hookah bars setup theirs? Then I will preferably take my own setup to yours .. because I think hookah bars produce some of the crappiest of crap hookah I have ever smoked. With burnt tobacco sticking to the bottom of the foil and mediocre flavor at best.

I'm no expert, but I think I setup a pretty tasty hookah, with exceptional flavor that lasts at least 45minutes to an hour, no harshness and no burnt taste ...

So put your video up .. show us oh wise one

I have to agree with everyone else here. I never let my shisha tobacco touch the foil and i always have great taste. It was also very poor taste to insult all the video makers here.

If you watch vids from the other community you're at, they do the same thing. so why not blow up at them too?

Hmm... what a dick comment... I agree with everyone else, let us see your so fabled ability to pack.
Also, why the hell would you post such an asshole like thread basically attacking the community? Your shoes must be of gold for you to be able to speak so greatly about yourself.

Bad form bro.... We are a tight community here and it is very disrespectful to come forth and trash what we believe is the correct method. It would have been more respectable for you to show us your method.

What works for you might not work for others.

Guys maybe he speaks of the double packing method with nakhla. Searing (not burning) nakhla could be beneficial to its flavor.

But once again....bad form!

Sorry guys I didn't mean it to be taken as an insult.
Rather I was just really suprised to see how the different ways people pack there shisha.
Now let me say that the vids are really great and very informative and if it works for you then great.Its just very different than how I have been shown and doing shisha for a long time and was kinda a shock too me.Maybee thats why I don't like starbuzz It needs to be sprinkled sparinglly and never touch the foil.That Kind of thinking never occured to me.I never seen it before

anyways guys please don't take it personal like I stated at first I was in a state of shock.If thats what works for you guys then great.And having the vidios are a great asset.Its great folks are willing to put there time and energy into these vids.

what I think of as good smoke would probly be conidered harsh by many.So yes its a personal preferance as to how you pack your shisha and smoke it getting the desired affect you prefere.I just prefere a strong smoke.And occasional smoke with out foil at all.

I let my tobacco always touch the foil and almost never have any problems with burning or getting harsh. Not even with starbuzz.

Anyway I learned from people from Jordan, Turkey, Egypt etc. and never had any issues with the way I pack.

Personally, I use a different packing method for every different brand as I'm sure most of the people on here do. What we have to realize is that everyone does stuff in different ways. I think there was a post on here recently about session superstitions and what not. This is a prime example of the diversity of hookah and the people who smoke it. That may be one of the best things about this hobby, the individuality.

I am very sure that fruit bowls were just props for videos, no one is saying that they enhance the flavor or anything. There are many individuals who are recognized because they can craft hookah heads made out of fruit right in front of you, plop it on the hookah, and you can actually smoke out of it. Also a prop, but still pretty cool nonetheless, it's like Benihana but with narghiles.

Everyone has a different way to pack, and different experiences with different things. I may say I hate MZ's, but I know there is a select few that I actually do enjoy smoking from. I still tell people not to buy them though.

OK, and i'm not saying you are a jerk here, but I think you have spent a little too much time over "there".

Well, being as I made one of the videos in question, I figured I better put my 2 cents in. I would like to point out that I was inspired to try the over pack method I demonstate in the video based on photos that twoapplesplease posted.

The method has worked well for me and I would encourage everyone to give it a try. I would NOT go so far as to say it is the "correct" method of bowl packing. I still use a "standard" packing technique most of the time and I get great results.

As was stated by others, we all do things a bit differently. What works for me may not work for you. I am generally willing to try what works for you and come to my own conclusions. Bottom line is a person has to find out what works for them through experimenting with what is known to work for others. (say that 10 times fast!)

If you do watch my video, be aware that recently I have tried this method with a slightly larger in diameter bowl and gotten better results.

Peace folks...
