Default How to pack tangiers

Ok, since people seem to be having trouble I made this how-to for packing tangiers. I understand a lot of people are tired of hearing about it and thats fine. No one is forcing you to try this but if you are having problems and want to get it going this may help.

First step. Pick out your tobacco. (I got lazy and didn't label a bunch of them)



I took indigo flower. Ok, so now we have our bowl, our tobacco, and an oyster fork. This is a small phunnel



How grab the bowl and drag it through the tobacco till you have a hefty amount on top.



This is what I got after my dig



Now you take all that, and even it out, you dont have to push it all in, just take the oyster fork and try to make it as even as possible on top without digging any tobacco out. Here is a pic after a little forking.



Now take the fork, and drag from the center hole outwards with the flatter end. After done it will look like this



Here is a side view


and from above



Then you take your foil, place it over the bowl, and slightly press down to see the stiffness of the tobacco, if you get the shape of the funnel really easily, you have underpacked it.



Now pull the foil sides out so it flattens out and foil it up.



I'm using 3/4 of an exotica stick



Now take a toothpick, and push all the way through the tobacco to the bowl itself. Wipe away any juice. Sorry for the blurry pic




I added some ice to the ice chamber for shits and giggles



Here is everything set up. Sorry for the blur again



At this point, get the charcoal. I took the 3/4 stick and dropped it (by accident lol). Normally I'd break into 3 pieces. It broke into 3 which is good enough for me.



Now personally, I let it sit for a few mins to warm the tobacco up. 3-4 mins. Here are some pics right after that when I started smoking






Smokes great, tastes great.

If you don't like tangiers its cool. I'll stop harassing you guys about it. If you guys need any help let me know.

SCOOP! Thanks for this one bro. I keep wanting to try Tangiers but have heard it has to be set up differently. Now I know. And now I'm going to pick some up. Thanks again for the tutorial.

Great Guide. Probably will help some of those who can't get tangiers to smoke right.

Ill give tangiers a shot. Do you have to have a phunnel bowl for to work really well. Or can this awesome flavor and clouds be achieved with any other type of bowl? Is the buzz super overwhelming, because I am not a big fan of getting my ass super floored to where I can't even stand up.

Nice clouds Scoop!, I am still too scared to try Tangiers. Mainly because of the buzz, I hate them so much.

its recommended that you use a phunnel, it was inspired by the tobacco. it keeps all the juice in and makes it easier to pack.

just mix the tobacco w/ washed shisha for about a week, the buzz goes away .

So what you are saying is that you have to SCOOP the tobacco up into the bowl?

I'm Tired okay?

For those who aren't lucky enough to own a phunnel (like me!), you can phake the phunnel.
Essentially what you want to do is wrap the foil around your finger a little bit to create the centre part then cut a hole in it. Then just press the new phunnel shape into your ordinary bowl. At that point, load it up. Obviously you can't scoop the shisha in with the phake phunnel. What I do is use my fork and drop/pack large bundle of shisha in. The same principles apply as in Scoop's post concerning the proper amount.

This is how I've gotten Tangiers to smoke well without a phunnel. In an ordinary bowl you end up with juice running all down your stem, which makes for less taste and more intensive cleaning when you're done. The phake phunnel also has the advantage of letting you pack less tobacco; using a phake phunnel in my bowl results in the perfect solo smoke, with no unspent shisha in the bottom.

If my instructions aren't clear, I can elaborate or post some pics.

If you get a new batch of Tangiers, no phunnel is required. This is a geat tutorial though on teh older stuff. This is pretty much how I pack mine.

Yup, the foil will touch the tobacco. Make sure you puncha bunch of holes in the foil, it needs to breath. And use about 1/2 the coal you normally use.

For you guys that want to mix the Tangiers with another shisha for a smaller buzz, I would suggest cutting the tangiers into smaller pieces with a knife. Mix it all together with your hands, then pack it up. I do this when I smoke with certain freinds. Layalina seems to work really well for me.

ok. here is a picture i made to try to explain it.

1. you place the fork over the phunnel hole.
2. you proceed to drag it outwards away from the hole, towards the edges, which will lightly push down on the tobacco and even it out

Great tutorial, seeing it all worked out makes me want to try tangiers; it says on the tangiers website it says to let the shisha acclimate to the air for four hours, what do about letting yours acclimate?
