Default HH in a phunnel?

Looked, but didn't find anything.

I picked up a 50g package of HH from my local shop. The margarita flavor enticed me. What can I say, I'm a sucker for interesting flavors.

Anyway, is there some particular way to pack it into a phunnel bowl? Or just go for it?

Personally I'd say avoid HH to begin with...but that's just me.

I haven't tried it myself but whenever I get to thinking about trying something like that, I just go for it! It's the best way to learn what does or does not work for you!

Only problem is a 50gr doesn't leave much room to experiment with a phunnel bowl.

HH has some good flavors, but I would suggest using a vortex if you have one. Phunnel works fine but expect a shorter session than usual, flavor and smoke quality will remain bueno. My only complaint with HH shisha is its way too fine of a cut so it burns out a lot faster and it is almost completely soaked in glycerin, giving it that nasty chemical smell. They say it has honey in it but if it does then its such a small amount that it doesnt even matter. =(

I wouldn't say HH is the best but it's still pretty good. If I had to guess I'd say funnel is your best bet; it burns easily in an Egyptian and is very juicy.

I usually use a vortex bowl for HH. (I smoke it often.) A phunnel bowl will work ok, but as Sui said, it's a bit shorter session. To pack it for a decent smoke in a phunnel, I find it works well to use the thumb and forefinger sprinkle in method, then to lightly pat the top down even so that it doesn't go over the top of the spire. That prevents foil stickage and airway blocking.

Haha, I almost completely agree with you...actually thinking back I do agree with you. I have only bought 300g of HH since I started smoking personally and I must say its on the bottom of my list. I won't go as far to say they are the worst evar, but I'd say the lack of quality is a steep price for the variety of flavors, in which can be found in better brands (SB,JMs,AF)

But back to the phunnel...I would say to try and stick with any med-long cut tobacco with good moisture/vicousity ratios like Nahkla, Starbuzz, AF, Rosetta, Al Waha, Tangiers, El Hennyway...etc the list goes on. I would just suggest that anything with a cut smaller than JM's and has the texture of wet shredded paper should not go into a phunnel, a vortex works a ton better. Granted a phunnel and a vortex commercially are based on the fact that they catch drippies from going down the stem...I still find that because a vortex pulls the air through the shisha and is a bit deeper in the bowl it works better for fine to med cut tobaccos.

Pretty much a stick to:

Egyptian- For anything like Nahkla and for a more flavorful session (reason again being that the air flow is directly through the shisha but being that a egyptian bowl will always create more direct heat for the shisha I find it is better for use with Nahkla styled shisha, and never a good idea for heat sensitive or fine cut shishas)

Vortex- Already explained it for the most part...

Phunnel- Refer to "Vortex-"

Phunnels are the best bowl for hh tobacco. Tell mr another way you could smoke 7 spice for 2 and a half hours.

The funnel will work fine. When I use my funnel with HH I can get fairly long sessions with solid flavor. I usually use a vortex but the funnel works fine as well.

Regarding the properties that HH has, if you are getting anywhere less than a solid 45 minutes out of a bowl of HH you are doing something very wrong. I will not say it's the best but it's damn good. Flavors are just too light sometimes.

I've used HH in a vortex but never a phunnel and its the same principle so I'd say it works well. Since it is such a thin cut you need to pat it down a bit because if you just leave it fluffed up the strands of tobacco will burn quick because they are above the glycerin/honey and this leads to some of the complaints people have with HH. I personally smoked it when I was at college because my local vendor carried it. It smokes fine, really. Just dont push the heat too far because once again it'll burn. Light heat will give you less clouds but it'll keep the flavor and prevent you from having a bad session. I used to use one QL 33mm disk in half for a bowl and it was perfect. Maybe 2 naturals would do the trick. I've stretched HH/HF to 2 and a half hours so like I said it'll smoke if you fiddle with it to see what works best.

I pack it and plop 2 coals on and don't move them. When they die I put 2 more on the opposite sides and smoke another hour
