Default Try making a bowl of an apple...

Hi guys!

i watched Sambookas cid on how to make an apple bowl, and since i had nothing to do other than smoking i figured i sould try it out, so i did.

I can really recommend this to you. i tried a normal green apple and some vailla shisha, a really great combo. u get the sweet taste of vaila with just a hint of apple. best pipe i hade all day i think.

A couple of problems how ever.

when i carved out y apple i was afraid that it wolud break, so i ended up with a bowl with kinda big edges. and i hade a hard time getting my foil to stick.

other than that it was great. try it out!

Apple bowls are fun, but it takes a shitload of coals to get started. The apple taste on the side of the tobacco flavor is very nice though

did you use toothpicks to foil it? that usually does the trick if youre having problems with the foil coming off and not sticking

Hmm I might have to try this. I don't have any apples right now. I will g pick one up at the local grocery here soon and try this technique. The apple flavor sounds pretty awesome.

I would also love the look on my moms face when she sees a huge ass apple on top of my hookah .

The shiny part of the foil better reflects heat inside the bowl, like using one of the mylar emergency blankets, because it reflects your body heat.

ALright guys, im back.
im now smoking on a bowl made out of a kiwi with strawberry shisha in it. loving it, been going on it for a solid 45 min now and its working great.

U do get the kiwi aftertaste with the kick of strwberry. i think this will work great with vanilla or maybe bannana shisha as well. really recommend u guys to try this. not just with a kiwi, try apple, lemon everything shaped like a bowl.

Thanks again to Sambooka for intruducing me to this!

ill attach some pics on the process on making it aswell

// happy smoking
savage smoker

Ps. shinny side up or down cant really make a diffrence out of it. sure putting it down will get better heat but thats never a problem for me. DS.

Nice job savage smoker! Looks just like the one I did

I hope some other people get daring and try it out too! So we are not the only two dare devils!

Cheers!

Okay Jasmine and I are off to the kitchen to cut our granny smith, I forgot a damn kiwi at the store today.

Edit: Okay bowl took about 3-4 min to make at most and was very easy. I turned it into a Phunel-type bowl and placed the tobacco around the sides of it. I used 4-5 small nails in a cross-cross pattern to stop anything form falling down the stem and placed about a 3/4" by 3/4 piece of aluminum foil in the center in the shape of a thimble with small groves in the bottom allowing the smoke to go through but stopping the tobacco, i held this down by two small thumbtacks.

This method works great and it almost feels like smoking out of a brand new hookah! We used Layalina Blueberry and blackberry on the bottom portion and glazed the entire top with some Layalina mint, the flavor from the granny smith apple and this combo worked very very well.

I give this a 10/10, will do this project again many times over and when we get our new digital I will take a step by step process on how we did this.
