I smoke zag w/o foil. Definitely works WAY better... But used more so if you are looking for flavor... not clouds... obviously.
MadWolf has a great 'how-to' video for it.

This stuff isn't really like Zaghloul except that it lacks any flavourings other then what the molasses and tobacco provide. If it's fresh I'd say just smoke it like regular moassel.

You can but honestly I think it tastes better when you re-moisten it and smoke it like normal moassel.

Well you can smoke it that way but from what i've seen zaghloul sold in the West is far older and dried then what is normally the case else where. Personally, I think it's harsher and simpler tasting when you smoke it with coals directly on it. Try it both ways, re-hydrated and dry and see which one you think tastes better.

I don't know a lot of Egyptians so I can't say what the norm for them is but I can say that 90% of the time black moassel is smoked with a foil/screen if someone actually has access to either. Basically the only thing that I would recommend with coals directly on top is tombac.

To each his own I would imagine. I use Hajo's method for Zag, DM, Saloum plain and it works WAY better for me. When it comes down to it I trust him more than anyone when it comes to enjoying traditional types.

I've never had Zag before but I imagine this stuff has a better taste and less buzz.

I've been looking for stuff that my one roommate who's a cigar snob may like. So far I have him hooked on DM but usually he makes fun of my flavored tobaccos, yes, even Nakhla, I say to each his own.

I couldn't find my old link but here is a link to TexasHookah on the Desi Murli page. They were good enough to keep this article alive.

Well Zaghloul is nice if you set it up properly and how much a buzz anything has is basically a matter of how you smoke rather then what you smoke. Soft Black is a wetter, less robust version of a black moassel. Personally I think it's awesome and one of the first moassels I ever smoked. I've been using regularly for about 10 years now.

Right on bro! Buzz isn't something I like and clouds? well, if I want clouds i'll fire up a crapped out FIAT diesel.

Well I'm a cigar snob so I suppose I know where he's coming from. Basically I am huge fan of the spice/herb stuff made by DM but I have to say that some unflavoured Nakhla and Salloum can be pretty sweet as well. f you want really mellow, natural flavour and zero buzz grab Hookah-Hookah's Cavendish since it's a nice change of pace. I really have to say that Havana pipe is awesome although it doesn't really taste like pipe tobacco it's a great, natural flavour that simply doesn't taste like anything I can think of. As to Soft Black, well I am huge fan and have to say it's a great product although it was better before they changed the cut.

I would tease my friend about smoking washed hookah tobacco but yeah to each their own. I'm just glad he's smoking hookah.

Havana Pipe is their best flavor in my opinion. I will smoke it plain or will mix with salloum plain or nakhla zaghloul. You can really taste the molasses in this flavor.

Someone should order a Kilo, and then sell it in 50g containers to other hookahpro members (not to make a profit, but to get the people who wanna try it and not buying a kilo...)
