Depends on what tobacco you want to use as a base.

Theres two good routes.

1. Buy cheap chewing tobacco in bulk and "wash" it.

2. Use Asfahan/Isfahan tobacco as a base and I think Karabetian is a distro for that.

Sure... I soak it for a few hours and then rinse and simmer it a little.. Just get the cheap 2 pack at the gas station.

Hell. Ive thrown a wad of straight up chew in a bowl and smoked it. (no it wasnt that great. made my ears ring.)

Lol, Grizzley? :P My dad was always about copenhagen. Anyway, making our own shish seems kinda awesome. I would be interested in doing. I would need tobacco and flavorings though. I got glycerin and honey lol.

I thought you could use "pipe" or "rolling" tobacco as a base. Of course, it would still need to be washed...

I've considered messing around with this as I found a place that has cooking flavors locally at a decent price. Just need to find a "safe" form of glycerin - the stuff I keep finding is the stuff you put up your darie-aire.

There are some posts about how other members made some.... (search: homemade shisha)
