You can pack one side of the phunnel, poke holes on that side, have coals on that side, and smoke it like that. You could also make yourself a scalli shisha saver(i think that's what it's called)

already got the glass scalli mod
lol
anyways I was just thinking you might have to do something special with the foil so it didnt get screwed up on the unpacked side from nothing supporting it.
also anyone know some hole patterns that work well with tangiers in phunnel bowls?

I've never done it before, but I assume that if you pack it nice and tight it wont matter that its only on one side

yeah,
well went ahead and did a full bowl of peach ice tea.
thought I let it acclimate long enough..... guess not
anyways there was a fair amount of peach flavor but you could still taste this odd like burnt bbq type taste is the closest thing I could compare it to...
easy on the throat though. was gettting good clouds and all went well except that still slight undertone letting me know it wasn't quite acclimated yet.

just poke a bunch of holes, it really doesnt matter. if you are worried, i use concentric rings, two or three for a phunnel.

We do it all the time. Pack half of it like you would a full phunnel, leave the other half empty. take the toothpick or tack you use and when you put the foil on scrape a guide line across the foil surface so you know where the shisha stops and to stop poking your holes. great shisha saver.

If you pack it halfway it seems to mess with how it smokes whenever i do it that way..
