Question How do you dispose of hot coals?

If I finish my bowl and the coals are still hot I normally dispose of them by dropping them into a cold cup of water first. If they're quick lights, they'll dissolve and can be poured down the sink. If they're natural, I just drain out the water and throw them in the trash.

I feel like there is some better way to get rid of hot coals, so I'm going to ask what you guys do.

I throw them at the neighbors when they are still red hot.

Otherwise, I do what you do.

That's a great idea. I got some neighbors I don't like, so I'll be getting rid of coals AND my neighbors. Double Win!

i have a regular cigarette ash tray, everytime i have a session and i usually ash the coal in there also instead of the ash tray on the hookah. when im finish i take the remainder of the coal and break it up in the ash tray until theres no more glowing, then i take a piece of foil and put the ashes in it, also the finished shisha and i crumple it all up and throw it in the trash can.... i know it seems a lot of work but i got use to it and my area stays clean.

I just throw them on the concrete ground, we're always outside anyway.

The few(very few) time I've smoked indoors I just leave them in my tray then when it's time to clean up I go outside and toss them out, they're all dead by then

Must be nice to smoke outside...its like 20 degrees here. But I run water over them and just throw em out nothing too special really.

I wouldn't pour ash down your sink. It'll clog it hardcore.. I just use a cambells soup can, and soldered the lid midway in the can so the heat doesn't transfer through the bottom onto whatever surface it's sitting on. Cheap and effective

I tried smoking outside not too long ago. First off, I don't have a wind cover... so my coals were flying everywhere (bad) and it was also very cold. Not fun.

And I didn't know that ashes bothered "the system." I guess I could just put them in a tin and let them burn themselves out, then throw them away.

I dispose of all my trash from a session in my toilet. Water, ash, coals, burnt tobacco... has worked for me for 2+ years.

You know what the best thing to do after a good smoke is? Eat foil. Yeah, really completes the experience.

Using coconaras, if the bowl is dead, but the coals are still big enough, I grab them with the tongs, run them under water, and set them on a tray to be used again later.

Chances are, I'd completely forget about the trash in the can and reach in for some delicious pringles just to be greeted by nastiness haha

I never even thought of reusing them. hm... makes since though. As long as they're dry by the next time you use them... why not?

They are great for starting up a bowl, and finishing it off.
Say you start a bowl with more than 2 cococaras, and then take one off, instead, start it with 2 coconaras and 2 smaller left over pieces, by the time the left over pieces burn out, it'd be time to take the coal off, it just does it for you. And if you don't want to use a whole new coals when you are finishing a bowl, you can jsut throw the left overs on there.

I have a bucket out on the patio where I smoke that I throw the coals in. There are a lot of coals just resting in a block of ice right now. Also have a trash bin outside for used tobacco so i throw the foil and used tobacco into the bin and take the pipe back in and give the bowl and pipe a cleaning.

I bet throwing it in the snow would be satisfying... watching it sink into the earth. Wicked.
