Default Desi Murli tips

After all this talk about DM, ordered some and it will be in my hands in about 12 hrs or so. How to pack it in a phunnel bowl? should i go old school and use an egyptian? should I let it breath before I smoke? Just for the extra info I ordered strawberry milkshake and pina colada. Need advice from the DM pros

I usually use a vortex, but in absence of that, I would use the Egyptian bowl, but that is just me. Just pack it like you would Nakhla.

I usually use a vortex also, but do use an egyptian/mod bowl from time to time. I also did a how to pack DM in the egyptian/mod bowl. If you get a vortex, watch my how to pack AF, thats what I do for DM.

As fas as letting it breath, do you mean acclimate? If so no. This isn't Tangiers, this is Desi Murli, a lot better tobacco. When you get ready to smoke it put 3 coals on it and let it heat up for 10-15 minutes before you take a pull.

Husky can tell you how to use a phunnel with DM. I have never done it before.

Pack it lightly in a funnel to just under the rim, its a very easy tobacco to use.

I use a phunnel for dm also, I pack it very loosely until it's just over the top and then tap it down gently until it's just under the rim
make sure to cook the tobacco for at least 10 minutes before your first pull

You had me all excited for a second there... I glanced at your title and thought DM was starting to license hoses.

Thanks for the helpful tips guys I can't wait to try DM for the first time. I just heard nothing but good things and for the price?....I'd be dumb not to try. But I will be ordering a Vortex sometime this week.

I use a phunnel, and I just pack it in as it falls naturally - and under the rim. I poke lots of smaller holes and use 3 CH nat coals.

I've enjoyed DM in all kinds of bowls. Like most shisha, gotta watch the heat management. Takes longer to get going, only about 5 minutes. Most people use 2-3 coals to start (me 2). Most will tell ya to be careful and not to "hoover" it... Subtle flavors, but awesome taste. My favorite bowl to smoke it with is the small tangiers phunnel.

I think DM will smoke nicely in just about anything. Just don't let it touch the foil and move the coals often. And yeah, cook the shisha for 5 to 10 minutes depending on how many coals you got on there and you'll have yourself some nice flavored clouds. DM is definitely a gift from the hookah gods.

I packed a bowl last night and I wasn't getting the results that I was hoping for. I was getting mostly earthy tobacco flavor, but not really any strawberry/creamy flavor. I did a light pack on my medium Phunnel under the rim, put three CH nats, let it sit for 10 minutes with my windcover. Took off one coal and kept the windcover on. Should I use the Hookah John Nakhla overpack method with lots of toothpick sized holes?

What results were you getting? I pack mine like I do AF and I get 1+ hour sessions. I don't over pack like I do Nak, just my preference though.

Sounds about right. Were you doing Strawberry Milkshake?

yes I was. From the reviews I've seen on DM and this flavor I thought I was doing something wrong. I thought the flavor would be more pronounced with the earthy creamy tones. To put it in a simple way, blindfolded and taking a hit, probabl would think its an unflavored shisha

I thought the same thing last night smoking SMS. you said it perfectly demented... "blindfolded and taking a hit, probably would think its an unflavored DM"

EDIT: don't get me wrong, it's still damn good. I just couldn't taste the Strawberry or milkshake part at all

Wait until you see my new SMS video, I didnt get any of the strawberry or creamy milkshake flavors either, tasted like DM Plain. I am sure you did everything right. I have been smoking DM exclusively for the past 2 years and know how to pack DM in my sleep and I didnt get that flavor from the SMS.

I thought it was me, but I'm digging the flavor that I was getting out of it. Creamy earthy with a bit of spice. Just no strawberry. Even if it was a sub par batch I am a fan of DM. Guess that shows how good it is. It converts people even on a bad day...

On my packaging the mix date was 03/17/10. I wonder if your guys' "non strawberry" SMS was from the same batch or not?
