I think it may be the cheap insta light coals im using and the fact im only putting two on there.

Im going to try tomorrow with 3 broken up into like 1/4's and placing them all even around the rim

I will try adjusting if its not working to good.

Thanks guys.

Damn, i dunno but that sounds like wayy too much coal on top. That'll burn the shisha in an instant. You won't get any good flavor, just burnt taste. 2 QL works perfectly fine for me, especially on SB with a phunnel bowl. 3 QL is alot of coal all at once. The bowl will get really hot and the tobacco will smoke harsh for sure.

Use 2 QL and maybe break them into 1/2's. 2 is usually always a perfect coal number.

Huh. Sometimes it takes up to 15 minutes for the bowl to get going for various unimportant reasons? It took 10 last night, but ti was smoking perfectly after that and til the end of the bowl.

As far as the ice bucket goes, if its available try crushed ice, you get get more of that in there and it forms better than big blocks. but dont do shaved ice cuz it melts too fast.

Great idea, i'll try it later today and post pictures on how it went, and how the second try at coals went.

I could also use snow if I smoked outside again, but its a bit to cold now so I will probably just chill in my house

Well, I noticed when I smoke outside and it is cold out that I don't get as much "thick" smoke? And you are smoking outside in REALLY cold weather! So that could be part of it?

Do you have a windcover? Probably not ... so try using some aluminum foil, and make a windcover. See how that works out for you! Report back and let us know ... try it with just the two coals, broken into halves.

Cheers!

Yah windcovers make so much of a noticeable diference. I smoke in the freezing temp. of SLC Utah every weekend and every wednesday and if i did not have a wondcover, my coals would not even be able to stay lit.

I can't even light QL coals during the winter at all. They just don't light up all the way cause it' so damn cold outside.

I think my smoke is just as thick outside, and it's easy to keep my base water freezing because, well, it's damn frigid cold outside. If the water wasn't constantly in motion it would freeze completely in 20 minutes!

Word, I decided to smoke inside today and tried Al-Waha Orange.

I got a really nice buzz but wasn't digging the citrus smell.

However with 2 3 Kings Quick Lites broken into 1/4s around the rim and a tiny one in the middle, I got really really thick clouds of smoke.

Was definetly fun and relaxing.

Awesome man, i'm glad you finally got the smoke you deserve!

I would try AW Orange Cream. The citrus is not overpowering or too chemical, and the cream adds a nice note (it's not as much cream s it is vanilla). Also AW Vanilla is the nest vanilla available IMO.

Ive read a bunch of reviews on different ones, but its hard because people's opinions vary so much.

Whats the deal with Starbuzz, Al Fakher, and Tangiers?

Those are the three brands I wanna try.

All great. SB is like the step up from AF. SB doesn't give you a buzz unless you are REALLY sensitive to nicotine. AF is a great buy for the amount of money it is sold for. AF gives you a light buzz sometimes. AF doesn't have hardly the amount of flavors SB has.

Tangiers is a whole different ball park, it is not washed so it has a much higher nicotine content so a hardcore buzz ensures. It is made with Molasses, and the taste (if you get a good batch and acclimate it) is the best you can get. it smokes harsh usually and takes alot of practice to keep it smooth. I think ti is worth it, others don't.

I think what i'll do is pick up some AF Grape, since Sam raves about it.

What is another solid choice for a Tangier flavor and SB?

That way I can find a brand I like and go from there.

Hmm, a good starter Tangiers flavor is Horchata, Cool Strawberry, Peach Iced tea.

For SB, I would say White Peach, Fuzzy Naval, Blue Mist, Marlet... Alot of SB flavors are awesome.

every flavor someone may like that you will hate. different strokes for different folks. here is my basic opinion on those three

starbuzz: overall a solid tobacco, fairly forgiving on heat so if it goes harsh you can revive it with little to no bad effect on your session. the flavors are sweet which is what i like because i can taste the flavor easily, some other brands the flavor is lighter so i dont taste much and dont like them as well. its bad point is the pricing, you can get fairly good discounts if you buy multiple ones but not always. check my tobacco pricing list for the cheaper sites to find it.

al fakher: solid brand also, not as forgiving in heat as starbuzz but it will give in. the flavors are not as strong so i dont like this one as much but it does have its good flavors. easy to get to smoke just watch your heat and the pricing is great.

tangiers: great brand, i like it as much as starbuzz overall. people say it gives a killer buzz but i havent gotten one yet personally and havent gotten one from nakhla either. it is VERY heat tempermental and once you burn it you can bring it back but it may be worse off and taste like crap. prices are fairly good but not as good as al fakher.

Is there much of a difference between the KM Parad-Ice and On The Rocks?

starbuzz white peach is one of my favs, and x on the beach as well.

another brand comparable to starbuzz is fusion, which is great because the flavors are just as strong and its a few bucks cheaper. papaya raspberry, mango raspberry, cactus pear, orange, and something else are fusion flavors that have not let me down. i am about to order some fusion banana since i hear many a good thing about it. stay away from wildberry mint

al fakhers sweet melon tastes almost exactly like a cantaloupe.

al waha orange cream is really really good, its almost like a cream saver. california dream is another bomb flavor from them.

i would offer more brand and flavor advice but i gotta take off in a couple minutes, maybe next time i get some computer time

That is great KM! A buddy of mine has that exact model and it's fantastic. I have different, older KM ice chamber and I love it. In terms of what to smoke i'm a huge Afzal fan although H-H Cavendish is damn good as is Zaghoul, Al Basha Rose and Ark Sous. Lately, I've been smoking a lot Salloum Moassel Bahreny and plain.

Its hard to imagine anyone could be a "huge Afzal" fan. I got like six free samples when I bought my hookah and each tasted the same, except double apple which tastes like @$$.

looking at the reviews of Fantasia's shisha, im not sure im going to like it. i bought two 50g of Fantastia... as for Afzal, unlike Fantasia, at least ive heard about Afzal before so it cant be that bad..
