should you use a phunnel bowl only for tangiers and a different bowl for other shisha?

that is just my understanding, if other people know of other ways that work then please chime in

A phunnel bowl is supposed to work great for most shisha's, mainly the wetter ones.
I would say never use any bowl besides a phunnel for tangiers.

So what exactly would happen if you just packed some tangiers in a regular clay or ceramic bowl?

a huge mess, and a crappy smoke.
all the juices would run into the down stem, make the shisha less flavorfull, make the smoke harsher, and of course make the session really short.
please keep in mind that this is only with the f-line and the nour line (nour line is the origonall)

Why not just buy some tobacco that you can pop the lid off, stir it up and pack and smoke?

I know a lot of people that can get it to smoke well in a regular bowl, but phunnel is preferred.

Thats very subjective. I smoke all brands and find good and bad flavors with every one of them. For instance, Tangiers watermelon is horrible! Cherry is Horrible! Blue Gumball is weak etc etc. I love K-Peach, Sweet Melon and Cool Strawberry though.

Tangiers never needed a phunnel to be smoked. The phunnel came after tobacco. Lucid for me, tastes better in a regular bowl. The juices may be too overpowering for me. i dunno.

okay back to this so you slightly overstuff the tangiers small funnel bowl, poke hella holes at the top, and should the shisha be fluffy or should i be packing this mother down.

The density of the tobacco in the bowl should be the same as how you got it in the bag.

Tight.

Sounds like you are doing it right .. and that is the reason I don't bother with this tobacco. But then again, I don't have a degree in rocket science? So that could be my problem.

After trying most different methods for packing tangiers, the one that seems to work the best for me is the 3 finger drop method. Get out the phunnel, stir up the shisha, take your thumb, index, middle finger, and get a big 3 finger grab of the shisha. Drop it into the bowl. Now, you need to groom it to get it in there right. Start by pushing down on the shisha, not to really pack it down tight, but to make sure that it's going to the bottom all the way around the phunnel. Make sure you take out the shisha in the middle to open the whole. Take off shisha from the top, until you have about a 1/4 to 1/2 inch above the rim.

Get out your foil, shiney side down, push it down with palm. it should make a slight indentation from the middle hole in the foil. Straighten out the foil tight, and secure it on the bowl. Take out a wooden kabab stick, and make holes going all the way down to the bottom of the bowl, starting on the outside. I say do a hole every 1/8 inch or so. Then do the same with a 2nd ring. Then do a 3rd ring, but I don't go all the way down, and I make these holes smaller. Say about halfway down the point of the kabob stick. This 3rd ring is very close to the middle hole but I never put one over it to make sure all air is going over the shisha. Some say they put on in there, and see no difference. You can try if you want, I just don't.

Then I throw on 2 cocos, and a windcover. Let sit for a few, without smoking it, then rotate and flip the coals and let er rip. Works like a champ. Nice big clouds, full flavor. If you get any harshness, it probably needs to acclimate more. I leave the windcover on the whole session, as this helps the coals burn much better, so I don't have to blow on them at all to get the red hot when I flip them. Plus it really helps the heat management. Makes 2 coco's perfect for Tangiers.

The only problem I have with Tangiers, is the bowls last FOREVER. I solo my hookah since my wife is pregnant, so I do kinda hate having to smoke the same flavor for a few times in a row to not waste shisha. This is on a small phunnel.

Anyone get Tangeirs to work with a mod? I haven't tried it. Don't see why it wouldn't work.
