Default completing a bowl

Everytime I smoke, theres usually a bit of unsmoked shisha in the bottom. I take the bowl off and blow through it to get rid of the ash, rotate my coals, and theres a little bit of shisha left over. any hints on smoking the entire bowl?

The fact that there is a little bit under the bowl is normal, well at least for me it is. I know I cant kill a whole entire bowl by myself in one sitting. So you could throw a second set of coals on there if our heart desires or trash it....its all personal preference. However, when i do have friends over and we are all smoking that bowl will be completely fried by the time the coals are done. It is a matter of how many people are smoking it and how often. Personally i just trash the bowl and make a new one.

I wouldnt worry about it. generally its only a few minutes worth of smoke, its not worth it. unless you get rid of all of the spent shisha and throw more of the same flavor in

as long ass you're satisfied with the length of your session then its fine. If you wanna smoke more, like others have said, drop another coal on it.

I have found this same thing happening to me....thanks for the tips...I thought maybe putting less shisha in the bowl might help also.

You are never going to have the coals die off, at the precise time, the tobacco is exhausted. The burned tobacco at the top of the bowl, works like a "blanket", and insulates the bottom tobacco from the heat. I almost always have some unburned tobacco, at the bottom of the bowl.

Abu makes a valid point! If you have a whole bunch of friends over and want to go completely buck wild!!! Mix the uncooked with some fresh out of the tub stuff and go nuts.

Same thing happens to me but the good thing is...the shisha always tastes good when I'm done...if you smoke it down all the way it tastes funky. It's worth throwing a little away imo.

Due to the fact that you essentially "Steam" the shisha, that little bit at the bottom thats unburnt is still pretty much worthless to spend a new coal on.

I tried to put a new set of coals on the bowl and like 5 minutes into the next set of coals the shish gets all funky tasting and we have to trash it .

That lukewarm stuff at the bottom of the bowl is just as fresh as the stuff in the tub? For some reason it would feel wierd if I did it. It would be like taking the rest of this tub of peanut butter that you left in the back seat of your car and threw it in the peanut butter jar in the cabinet lol.

I would just throw it in the trash can. All in all out of all of my bowl im throwing like 1-1.50 away. That is an amount I can afford to lose.

That is the only way to do it myfriend. So you lose some shish dumping the foil big deal right? :P. If more than half the bowl is unroasted that is when it gets to me lol.

Nah I'm like weird sometimes. Like when I am smoking passion fruit mojito my stomach begins to hurt and then I only take a hit once every 5 minutes then the coal dies and hardley any of the shish is burned.

Usually when it get to that point for me the smoke clouds are weak anyway so either trash it or make a new one. its not worth the couple cents of shisha in the bottom

Eck I never actually try to smoke the whole thing to bits. When a bowl tastes like crap and is done...That means it is completely done imo.
