From what i know, tangiers should be smoked out of a tangiers phunnel, but you could try it with a normal bowl. And just use your regular setup.

ive heard of people smoking it just fine from a reg bowl. im no expert but with the holes, just place em like you normally do, as far as heat goes, add too much heat and it will taste gross, add too little and youll be thinking, "wheres the smoke?!"

1) acclimate the tobacco first
2) phunnel or regular bowl is fine
3) when packing the bowl don't pack it to fat, unless you want a long session
4) you want a lot of holes, that're about toothpick size, not to small but not huge. (and when i say alot of holes, i mean a LOT)
5) start off with about 3 coals and work your way around it, dont put it to the center put it around the edges, if it's harsh move around the coals or take some off
6) enjoy the smoke and the real nice buzz

You have to make sure you pack a lot more than you usually do with normal tobaccos.

Acclimation is VERY important key! If it still smells like BBQ or soy sauce, it is not done. But remember this, do not smell the tobacco directly, kind of "fan" the smell towards you. If it smells like the flavor is should smell like, it is done

main points with tangiers:

pack a lot in the bowl
don't sprinkle it or pack it down, use the consistency it's in
poke a LOT of toothpick holes
use very LITTLE heat
enjoy

big holes.
less heat.
acclimate it, you should smell a difference when it is done.
use more tobacco.
dont sprinkle.
you don't need to use a phunnel bowl but it is recommended.
good luck and if you get it right- enjoy!

Acclimating is getting the humidity in the tobacco to the same humidity in your climate. Tangiers Tobacco goes through humidity shock when you open it if your humidity is different than So Cals. So you must let it sit in the open air in a tupperware container for up to 6 hours stirring every 1/2-1 hour or so.

yup what husky said.
You should smell a difference in the tobacco as it acclimates.
when you first receive open the bag it might smell like a bbq or something.
once it has acclimated enough you should start to smell the flavor of the tobacco.
