1. juices don't run down the stem thus making flavor last longer
2. pack it normally
3. put the coals on top
4. yes it's like a normal bowl as they both allow the smoking of tobacco to occur.
5. a mod goes in the center to cut down on the amount of tobacco you use
6. the SEARCH button is your friend

Phunnel bowl are designed to maximize longevity and flavor in a bowl.

The bottom does not have holes, there is one raised hole in the middle of the bowl. The tobacco goes around this. When it is heated, the juices in the tobacco lose viscosity and become thin, sinking to the bottom of the bowl. In an Egyptian bowl the juices fall right through the holes, in a phunnel the juices sit at the bottom of the bowl and cook. This keeps the tobacco moist and the flavor strong.

The Mod is designed to re-direct airflow of the smoke, by pulling it through the tobacco and juices instead of over them. The Mod sits on the hole in the middle of the phunnel.

These bowls are very commonly used now, more-so the Egyptians for the most part, although Nakhla is best smoked out of an Egyptian.

Some people don't use the Mod because they say it does nothing. I like it because it raises the center of the foil up so the coal doesn't sit directly on the foil touching the tobacco.

okay cool.
i feel like if you put the coal in the middle of the bowl it would pull air directly from underneath it and youd taste "grossness"

I would wait 1 week to see how the Vortex bowl performs, it's much cheaper than the phunnel with the discount code.

the vortex bowl is one BIG question mark. lol
The phunnel is amazing though. sure you're using more tobacco, but it's all worth it if you want a GRRReat session.

You dont need the mod, but if you want to smoke a smaller bowl it will help.

you can pack under, but your smoke will be less because of the space between the coals and tobacco.

Default Re: phunnel bowl

this is the way Eric (of Tangiers) taught me:

HEAP THAT SHIT ON, MAN!!
i'll tip the phunnel on its side and try to scoop as much tobacco into the bowl as humanly possible, without squishing it in there. i just let it all rest on top. then you should have as much tobacco raising up out of the bowl as you do inside the bowl. (i know; it seems weird, but it makes sense, trust me.) make sure it's all even, though.

then you corral the little pieces of tobacco inside so nothing is hanging over the edge. it is not totally necessary to clear tobacco completely from the hole in the middle, but i do.

once that is all set, and it appears that you've got twice as much tobacco as you need, set the foil on top, push down with your palm to compress the tobacco down. don't wrap the foil around the sides of the bowl yet. you might have to take it back off and add more or take some off.

keep pushing and rotating the bowl arround so everything gets compressed evenly. once you have compacted all the tobacco down with the foil, the ideal fill level should be a as high as a quarter's width from the edge of the bowl to the top of the foil.

Eric uses a srimp fork to poke holes in the foil. it seems to work pretty well. better than my silly toothpick meathod, that's for sure. when you are done, you'll have a ton of holes all over the top of the bowl. and don't worry about poking a hole in the middle or not poking holes; just poke holes accross the whole bowl evenly and it'll work out just fine.

i've only tried this method with Tangiers tobacco, though. and now that i know how, i never have a bad session due to poor packing. now, to try it with other tobaccos.

i ordered a second vortex bowl since i dropped my first one. the one i have now has the holes just milimeters from the bottom and it accomplishes nothing more than a standard egyptian. The juices flow down the stem just the same and it pretty much accomplishes nothing. they need to make these bowls more consistantly becuase the first one ( that i dropped) was alot better.
