Smile My 1st Hookah, 1st Pineapple Phunnel

Picked up my new friend from the post office today. To celebrate my induction into the hookah world, I wanted to try something different for the first bowl. This is what I came up with. A local grocery store has some mini pineapples on sale, humongous Fuji apples, and Tuscan melons. I decided to start with the pineapple. After viewing multiple videos and searching the forum, it seems the biggest downfall of using fruit is the drainage of the juices into the chamber. The phunnel design neatly elimanates this problem. I started off by cutting the pineapple with my electric serrated knife about 6 inches above the base. I then used the cordless drill with a 1/8" bit to make a pilot hole through the core. After measuring the stem of the hookah, I used a half inch hole saw from the bottom to make the lower connection. Switching over to a 1 inch hole saw, I drilled down 2 inches from the top using the pilot hole as a guide. I love my power tools. Using a sharp paring knife, I carved out the interior to make the bowl.

The bowl was loosely packed with 50 grams of double apple and wrapped in a double layer of heavy duty foil. Methinks that this bowl is definately suited for a large party. We started with 3 Solex coals, could barely get any smoke. More is better, so after bumping the coals up to 6, the smoke started flowing. We blew smoke rings, smoke bubbles and had an excellent time. After 2+ hours, a change was needed. After pulling the foil off, it was obvios that there was a lot of smoke left in the bowl, so the Pinapple Phunnel was wrapped and put in the freezer.

Time for the hottub. Second Bowl. Large clay packed with spearmint. Only 1 coal was needed to produce billowing clouds. There is something special about floating in hot water and puffing. A good night was had by all.

I wish to thank all the members of this forum who have contributed their experincce and knowledge, my first nights success is directedly related to your expertise.

Fly Low and Smoke On

Wow that is nice! You should repost this in the home-made section. I am thoroughly impressed! Did it add a nice pineapple back taste? I need to try that, it looks awesome!!! It looks pretty legit too. Kudos to you and your tool expertise :P. I am kinda bad with power tools :P

Hmm, a fruit phunnel is a brilliant idea. And great job on the pro looking results. I would be far too lazy to use my power tools.
I will definitely be trying this out at some point.

Very cool; that has suddenly become pretty high on my list of new things to try. Of course, that relies on me having access to a hole saw...although, a knife may work as well...

That seems great. For some reason I never thought to make a fruit funnel.... only ever a normal bowl. I have to try that out.

Nice job and nice rotator, I've thought about fruit bowls but the idea of the acidic juices running down my hookahs stem always stops me lol.

Thanks for the positive feedback. I'm to lazy to do it manually, that's why I use the power tools.

The smoke was very flavorful. By moving the coals to the outer edge, the pineapple flavor was intensified. Moving them back towards the center yielded more apple. It was a lot of fun moving things about.

I am studying an enormous Fuji apple and contemplating the possibilities. Grape and Apple? Jasmine and Apple? Phunnel bowls rule. An order to ******* Hookah is imminent.

Thanks again for the warm welcome
