Default Question about Tangiers..

Ive read mixed reviews on this product.. it seems to be a love or hate it type product so Ive decided to try it out... Is there special preparation prior to smoking this? Or can i smoke it like i would for starbuzz or any other major brand? Thanks for all the help guys

you need to acclimate it for about 4-6 hours.

I put it in a tupperware container and stir it every hour or so

Acclimation....Leave out in open air 4-6 hours stirring every 30 minutes to an hour. Use room temp water in the base. over pack your bowl, do not fluff up the shisha like you normally do, it should stay clumped up like it comes in the bag, the shisha should be packed over the top of the funnel bowl, lightly tamp it down with a fingertip then double foil it, poke tons of good size holes in the foil, use 1/2 the amount of coal you would normally use. It seems like a lot but its second nature after you get the hang of it.

like everyone else is saying, acclimation is the key. Also, you don't pack tangiers like other tobacco brands...Have you have pack it differently. Heat management is tricky as well b/c this stuff is VERY heat sensitive.

I have tried 3 Tangiers flavs and I still can't get that stuff to smoke

i've had nothing but great sessions with tangier's peach iced tea. i'm sure most of it is due to this forum, but it's been good.

a lot of pretty big holes, blow through the bottom after you poke holes, start off with a little heat, add more as you go

Your right about the love it/hate it part. AND the others are right about the accimation part, heat management and so on.

Just remember one thing: if at first you don't succeed, try - try - try again.

Tangier's is one of those tobaccos that you'll probably never get right the first time. Don't get upset if it burns or worse, ask question - tweak more and keep going. It's good if you can handle the nicotine buzz, but takes ALOT of work to get right.

But when you finally smoke that perfect bowl... it's heaven on earth

thats what ive always heard as well. acclimating it isnt the problem, its getting it juuuuussst right when packing and getting the heat. ive been so tempted to try it but its rather pricey for such a small amount i cant try it for awhile...

Trust me I've tried EVERYTHING you could think of. Bigger holes, more foil, less foil, more heat, less heat, more baccy, less baccy, more coals less coals.

Nadda! nothing! Zilch!

Countless threads of asking for help and nothing

Maybe if I'm ever down san diego, I'll visit Eric's lounge to learn it from the man himself! :]

Someone I know went down there and learned! Maybe I'll ask that person to teach me too cuz I can't get Tangiers to smoke for anything. Its always harsh. And if it isn't, thin smoke and no flav. OR thin smoke lots of flav....OOORRR lol lots of smoke, not harsh, but no flav! ahhh
