Default TOMBAC

I see people talking about tombac but what is it? Also do you just smoke it in a hookah like you would shisha?

I think you have to soak it some how so that it can be shaped to fit in the bowl as a whole leaf, and you poke a ton of holes in it to pull the smoke through, and the coal goes directly on it, no foil

Tombac is smoked in a very shallow bowl. the dried leaf is soaked in water to rehydrate it. It is then piled high in the bowl and wrapped tightly around it. A single hole is poked through the center and through the hole in the center of the bowl to make airflow possible. coals are placed directly on the tobacco and it is enjoyed like a light cigar.

As a side note shisha is actually another name for hookah. The tobacco has lots of names as well but shisha is the pipe specifically.

I smoke tombac fairly often (i'd say once a week or so) and i've got a bunch of stuff floating around here about how to set it up and smoke it. A common mistake that people make is to assume that tombac is the same as black moassel like Zaghloul or Salloum Plain and that is totally wrong.

I think I may have to pick some of this up. I guess for whatever reason I just assumed that it was like every other amazing traditional smoke that we wouldn't be able to get it in the states but since I know we can I am very interested. A more detailed explanation on how to set up and smoke it would be very helpful

Well, as Hajo Flettner and myself were discussing yesterday on another thread, about Tunisian shishas and tobaccos, in some countries, particularly in Tunisia, people would wrongly call plain moassel "tombac" or even "Jurak", and its is even printed on 50 gr, boxes. Examples of it would be the brands SHEIKH EL BALAD, or AMBER from the same Tunisian producer. The boxes are labelled TOMBAC (in the case of SHEIKH EL BALAD it is only written in Arabic, but it says "Tombac"; in the case of AMBER TOMBAC, one side of the box is in french the other in arabic).
So You might indeed have thrown away a 50 gram box in which the word TOMBAC was wrongly written to describe what is indeed plain tobacco with molasses.
