Default What do you use? - First thing you grab

Next topic (with a slight twist)...

What do you grab first when you start your hookah set-up & session?

Some people start the shisha prep first, others work on coals, some clean the hookah, and I know my one friend cooks a MEAL before she ever sits down to smoke!

So, what do you do first?

First thing I always do is pop a base either in the fridge or freezer then go watch TV (or possibly clean the hookah if it needs it) while the base chills for atleast 30 mins.

When that's good, I always start the coals BEFORE anything else.

I usually pack the bowl first, unless I am using some natural or finger coals, then I start those first..

I almost always:
Fill the base up with water ,some ice, put in fridge.
Then I prep up my bowl, simultaneously throwing the coals on. I foil that baby, take the base out,
put the stem in, attach the hose, slap the bowl on and by that time, the coals should be red hot.
Only takes a few minutes to set up anyway...then I put the coals on and enjoy.

Turn on the stove to heat charcoal.

Either that or order one of the minions around to make it.
