Default Skewer method of packing Egyptian bowls

I posted this in the elite forum last week asking if it was a new method I had created. I guess it isn't new but folks in there said many people didn't know about it...so without further ado...

I started using long wooden skewers to help increase airflow when I pack Egyptian bowls with great success. The flavor and clouds are just unbelievable. It works fantastic with Nak, HH, HF, SB, & AF as I've been smoking them. The idea is to get a better pack while maximizing airflow.

First, you take 5 long wooden skewers and place them in the holes.



Then pack the tobacco in the middle and around each skewer making sure to get it well below the rim of the bowl. I go with 3 cube CNs so there is quite a bit of heat.



Then carefully remove each of the skewers leaving the holes that you can even see daylight through. You can see the light shining through this loaded bowl at about 9 o'clock.



Foil it up and hold on!

No, it is Nak Shaherazade Cinnamon - the best cinnamon out there I think. HF Atomic Fireball is pretty damn good too.

I've seen people pack the bowl first and then use a skewer to poke several oversized holes for airflow like TwoApplesPlease does in his overpack method(http://www.hookahpro.com/forum/showthread.php?t=15695). He packs a large chunk of Nakhla into a tight disc and then opens up the tunnels with the skewers.

Actually tried this after the fact last night using my poker. i packed Laylalina Blueberry way to tight, not to mention it is wetter than (insert mom joke here). helped a bit, but skewers would have been amazing.

That is very interesting and looks cool, to boot. I usually just punch the holes all the way through with the poker tool on the tongs and then open them up a bit after putting the foil on the bowl but hey, your method looks quite neat. Might give it a try sometime. Smoke happy.
