Default Hookah Noob...

Hey fellas, I'm new around here. Hoping to pick up my first hookah tomorrow at a local shop (I'm pretty damn excited). Anyways I have a question that I need answered...

As previously stated this will be my first hookah experience and I want to try out several different shisha flavors in one day.

So here's my question, I've read about the proper way to pack the bowl with shisha, What I'm wondering is if its ok to pack only 1/4 of the bowl with tobacco because I just want to get a feel for the different flavors? So I would smoke each flavor for say 10 to 15 minutes with a buddy. Will not filling the bow completely make the shisha more susceptible to getting burned and making harsh smoke? Or is it fine to only put a bit to tobacco in there and smoke for a shorter period of time? Thanks for the help!

yeah you should be able to but i would do that bc then you hookah and ur hse is going to have so many different flavors in it that after 3 or 4 it wil taste like crap and a mix of everything.. just experiment with like one flavor see waht you think.. then smoke another later after you rinse out ur hookah..

If you don't pack high enough, it will be a waste of tobacco and charcoal. First of all, your smoke will be weak. Second, you are wasting your coals because they wouldn't be able to heat the tobacco correctly. Third, the shisha will either burn badly, or not burn at all. You're better off smoking a whole bowl.
BUT
you can use the ring method. It works wonders if you want to smoke for only a little bit.

You make a ring type of thing out of foil, put it in your bowl, and pack only inside the ring.

They also make shallow clay bowls, for those who don't want to smoke a "full" packed bowl.

Just be careful of the heat, I would suggest using half the amount you normally use until you see how the bowl heats - more tobacco can take more heat. Use a windcover as well. Good luck!

Didn't get to it man, but today is the big day. I'm meeting my buddy at noon to pick out my hookah (I'm not sure of their selection) and my shisha and coals. I'll let you know after a few bowls. Got any Shisha recommendations? Cheers
