is that what you normally use for a small? because i use 2 afires for a small but they are bigger than 2 of johns coals. also my method of packing was get some on a fork, turn it upside down and slide it off the fork. then keep on repeating until it was filled.

My method was very similar, i have the tobacco on the fork, and the back of the fork against the middle as to not spill any down the middle. I then slide the fork across the top to compress it, and make it even with the lip of the bowl, no overpack.

I think that 1 coal would not be enough, but why don't you light 2 coals, use 1 for about 15 minutes to see if it works, if you need more heat add 1 more. This bowl holds heat extremely well, so after about 30 minutes it will be smoking perfectly.

How do you smoke an alien?
With a big f'n ray gun! What else?!

I'd pack it just like any other phunnel and cut back as necessary.

2 is perfect. takes a while to produce a huge amount of smoke depending on your pack but three is a lot.

storm king duh!
also 2 afires were fine and here are some pictures after an hour of kcherry

heres the tobacco use its about 5 beer (dogfishhead midus touch) tops worth of tobacco that could be smoked alot longer than 1 hour


and heres my complaint besides it being lopsided. i have 6 bubbles the first one is right below the center hole that actually cracked the glaze

and 3 that cracked the glaze and 2 that havent yet


the 2 that cracked right below the lip, one below that that is the biggest that hasnt, one below and to the right that hasnt and a smaller one thats on the far left that hasnt yet either. i expected this to be jesus in bowl form and i was close. its more of the tesla of hookah bowls.
edit: also minor complain its the same size as my soup can homemade windcover so its hard to cover but that isnt a real complaint

We all pay the "Early Adopter Tax" now and again. He will probably work the kinks out as he goes into the second batch. But I do agree that you should tell John so he can, at minimum, fix the problem going forward. Or at least keep an eye out for it.

I tried one coal for DM, needless to say, I had to go to a second coal. Two sets of coals did give me a 90 minute smoke. Received two aliens from John (blue and cream) with no flaws. Some size difference, but that is to be expected.
