Default Smoking traditional mu'essel

Several people have asked me about the subject lately so here is a link to an article I wrote on the topic. Don't listen to people that suggest you shoud place coals directly on the mu'essel, you only do that briefly when smoking tombac. Anyway, here is the link - http://www.hookah-life.com/events.htm let me know what you guys think and ask any questions. I suppose i'll bang up something about smoking tombac and jurāk although the latter is tough because it varies so much with the brand.

New comers to narghile stuff should read the sensible smoking article because far to many people in this hobby are too reckless and sickness is far to commonly ask about here.

That was really informative Thanks a bunch

I did not know that tradition tobacco was to be smoked like that...I thought they that coals were placed directly on the tobacco b/c that was what I used to hear >_<

thank you hajo for this article. I, like yourself, am a big fan of zaghloul, but as you stated, often find it extremely dry due to the packaging.I just wish quality product was more easily availiable .I'm looking forward to trying AF soft black as it should be availiable here in the states soon.great article.

Hello all,

I should say that the so called "black" mu'essel can be very enjoyable as quality tobacco has a wide range of flavours worth exploring. Decent tobacoo in any form should not be confused with cigarettes which combine low quality tobacco leaf ( and often stems, stocks and root in order to bump up nicotine content) which will always burn hot due to lose packing and and overly fine cuttings. I would suggest that one can't compare old fashioned mu'essel with with other forms of tobacco but instead it should be judged on it's own. Those of you that like a lighter bodied session should try H-H's cavendish which is excellent. If anyone has any more questions about more old fashioned styles of narghile tobacco just ask.

Keep in mind that when you add glycerine to "black" style mu'essel you should be by a sink a regularly wet your finger tips.
