Default Perfecting the Large bowls

Hey Guys.

I bought Large Egyptian bowl, I want to know why large over small?

I mean you buy large to make it last longer? make more smoke?

You buy small for short sessions? Make less smoke?

I'm wondering why people choose small over large and how to perfect a large one aka get descent clouds and make it last long?

Keep smokin

Well, I dont buy large and small etc. I use what I have an use more or less tobacco in the same bowl depending on session length. Some will say you need both a large and a small. I personally only use 1 bowl, a larger bowl and pack it according to my needs.

Well some people say that large bowls last longer, I dk why, but my Large Egyptian bowl lasts not longer than the small one. I mean on small one I use 2 coals and windcover, on large i use 3 and windcover to get same amount of smoke.

P.S. I bought large one to make sessions with friends last loong time, 2 hours if possible

It just seems to me that the large modern egyptian bowls are just more shallow than the traditional egyptian bowls but hold around the same amount of tobacco. I guess it's easier to manage your heat on a shallow bowl because there's more room to move the coal around and keep 1 "corner" of the bowl from burning.

Because this style of bowl is hand made there is no set standard for design. some will be shallow and others very deep needing different heat management skills.

A larger bowl can offer a longer smoking experience because there is more tobacco to use before you entirely use up the liquid. This is only applicable if the difference in size is great and you use multiple rounds of coals.
