Default Need Hookah Help [Phunnel]

Hey All,

So I'm not new to smoking, just new to the Phunnel bowl. I tried utilizing it today, and perhaps its the way I packed the tangiers or how i poked the holes (or both). But I packed the Tangiers TIGHT, juice was oozing when I pressed. Additionally I made sure that the shisha was not touching the foil.


My hole pattern was many small holes in a circular formation, with one bigger hole in the middle.

I used 3 Coconut Coals, distributed as typically shown.

I wasn't getting much smoke, some decent hits, but nothing like I see in videos. So I need some help to get this bad boy going! Btw, smoking a KM Red Pearl 36" (2 Hose), and of course the other person was plugging their hose when I pulled. Narbish v3 hoses, and the water level is right above the stem notch...

Let me know.

Thanks and smoke happy

SoWz.

If you poke a hold in the center of the spire of the phunnel bowl, all you'll do is draw air through that hole. Poke your holes around the "dish" of the bowl but not over the spire. That way it will draw air through the tobacco and down the spire instead of straight from outside the foil and down the spire. Smoke happy.

dus'

Medium Tangiers. Foil is very close to the tobacco, but not touching. I checked after my session and there was no burned shisha stuck to it.

The medium is a huge bowl. I use three coconut coals on my small and sometimes use four on more heat resistant tobaccos. Are you using a wind cover?

Sorry for the late reply haha

No wind cover, should I try 4 coals?

I tried packing it again today, definitely an improvement, but still not crazy thick smoke. Perhaps I need more heat as you said. I definitely did the foil pattern right this time.

i think it maybe the tightness of the foil over the bowl. it has to be pulled over very tight so it makes a little drum like sound when you tap the foil try that out.

My foil has been that tight, no sag or looseness.
