Well if u wanna go with nats, ull 100% need a burner. Even the ******* Hookah quick lights kinda need a burner since their so hard to light lol. but normal quick lights can be lit by a lighter.

I personally just use the stove for my quick lights and a lighter when am taking the hookah out. Throughout the session when I need more coals I just put a quicklight on top of the coal thats already burning and voila. Some people use a single coil stove top which is sold at walgreens.

I really like this one.
http://**********.com/Khalil-Maamoun...M-Base-616.htm

Comes with a narbish and a free box of coals. With the discount it would be a simply amazing pipe. Might be around $150. Leaving you with 100 for shisha.

Edit.

If your not in CA then it'll come out around 170 with the free coals, a box of discounted coals.

Yeh put some water in the base then fill it up with ice until desired level is reach which should equal 1 - 2cm of your stem submerged in the water.

Welcome to HP, feel free to ask us as many questions as you like. Both Ice cubes and or Ice water works well! I would also highly recommend the Km w a jumbo base.

A narbish hose is a must buy, along with either a vortex or a Tangiers Phunnel bowl.

If you are going to use quicklights a standard bic lighter will do however if you are going to use natural coals you would need a coal burner or use your stove(electric coil works best).

HJ has a 17% discount code right now. The prices I listed were rough estimates with the 17% off.

It's more expensive IN California, because john is shipping from California. I believe there's a required tax inside the state of sale (john or someone correct me if I'm incorrect). It's almost $15 extra for the hookah I showed you. If you're ordering from out of the state of California, you can save your self some cash.

The stem comes off the base, you put ice and water in the base, then put the stem back on.

Honestly, it seems like you're just starting hookah. Maybe you should buy something much cheaper price wise. Just in case you don't like it. IMHO it's much different having a hookah then going to hookah bars. More work involved. It's your choice though, anything KM is pretty much top of the line.

If you insist in KM, perhaps you should go with a cheaper one like a KM Americana Mini from hookahstore.com. Both john from ********** and alvin from Hookahstore are simply fantastic vendors. Can't go wrong with either one. Choose something you like, because ultimately its your hookah and your money.

Here is how to pack a vortex bowl --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxamJyrzVws

Here is a guide on how to pack Nak in an Egyptian bowl --> http://www.hookahpro.com/forum/showt...+egyptian+bowl

I personally like to just sprinkle to the tobacco into my bowl and very gently just pack it down( But not too much). Make sure the tobacco doesn't go above the lip of the bowl because it the tobacco is touching the foil it will smoke very harsh. Then add 2 pre cut pieces of foil(shiny side down) and use a safety pin or a tooth pick to make holes. The more holes you add the easier it will be to draw from however you risk not having enough smoke. Make like 25 holes ( like a 5x5 box) and make adjustments every bowl from there

Get a vortex or a phunnel. Forget the screen. They are pretty much useless. It's quite a purchase you have there. I would pick up an extra hose just in case. Have one for personal use and one for friends and such.

the bowl it comes with is fine. Don't get caught up in all the hype for this n' that. And be sure to check our video section for set tutorials and other helpful tips.

I'm a Nahkla guy myself. Ulimately what you'll wanna do is try different stuff and develope your own tastes. We've got a robust review section in video and text for some ideas of what may float your boat, so to speak.

I'm not familiar w/Johns' package deals but if you see something you feel you might like you should grab it. Some good Nahkla flavors for a new smoker would be sweet melon, anything Mizo, and double apple. Keep in mind the DA has an anise taste so doesn't appeal to all but it is their flagship flavor and all smokers should try it at least once.

fine choices! I would suggest in the future just buy a roll of Reynolds HD foil. It performs better and will be a dollar or 2 cheaper.
