Default Longest Starbuzz Bowl?

What has been your longest lasting, puffy, flavor-filled clouds Starbuzz Session?

Starbuzz seems to be very Temperamental, like a girl with a period, only a tad bit worse. 2 nights ago i literally could not get it to smoke without burning it. Those were the flavors Lemon Tea and Irish cream (a new tin, my old one was terrible). They would just not go without getting burned, for some odd reason, no matter what i did.

Last night, i packed a bowl of Lemon Tea. i was using 3/4 of an Exotica stick, in 1/4 pieces, on one side of the bowl. This side lasted through 2 sets of coals, keeping full flavor and smoke. I went to the other side with 3 coals, same thing. Then i added two coals on each side of the bowl afterwards and it kept smoking, wiht a lack of flavor of course.

So that was an almost 4 hour SB bowl. It was amazing.

How long can you milk a bowl of SB?

The longest I've ever smoked out of one bowl of Starbuzz is 1 1/2 hours. That's as much as I would want to smoke. After that I get tired of smoking or bored. It's funny that you mentioned that Starbuzz is temperamental. I wrote a review on a sampe pack of Al Fakher I got. I experienced your same situation, but with Al Fakher. That's why I gave it a crappy review. I've never had this problem with Starbuzz. It was so starnge that right since the beginning of the session, the Al Fakher was overheating. I packed it the same way I would with a bowl of Starbuzz, and yet, it couldn't handle two 30mm Golden coals on a small phunnel.

Don't kid yourself, you live in the chat room. :P

Our last bowl of SB was Irish Cream and we milked it for about 1.30hrs

I've def. noticed that starbuzz has a sweet spot that quickly degrades into a chemical taste... ex: XOTB... it's bad, then pretty good... then really bad. I'd rather just go with something that is good... better... amazing... then less good

Me and my cousin have literally sat down shooting the bull, while enjoying SB for about 4.5 hours. I know but it happens to be really late at night not sure if the cold air does anything for it. **Doesn't get too cold in Southern California** but Never the less 4.5 hours. We used insta-lite coals too, so no trouble trying to get smoke out of the bowl either.

Well, If you check my review of Al Fakher Grape, I smoked that for 3.5 hours! And to be honest we probably could have kept on smoking it! Was fantastic! Didn't get bored though, I was online, watching movies, and talking with my GF. So I was entertained

EDIT! Whoops, you said longest Starbuzz bowl! I would have to say X on the Beach for about 2.5 hours
