Default Just got my Tangiers Large Towerbowl

Hi,
yesterday I finally received my large Tangiers Towerbowl. Can anyone tell me how to smoke with it, with less tobacco?
It works well for Hookah Hookah, but if I want to smoke Al Fakher or Starbuzz, I need too much tobacco (about 10g).
Can anyone tell me, how to smoke with less tobacco?

Buy a smaller bowl :P

But really.. You could put your finger in the middle and pack around it.. Sort of how a phunnel is packed..

Are you just packing less than the capacity?
10g is really a very small amount. It's about perfect for one person in my opinion.

I'v never tried that personally, but I have heard of people doing that with larger non phunnel bowls.

If you looking to only use 10g this bowl might not be for you.

10g is too much ... normally i use about 5g for 1 session.
if tobacco was cheap here, maybe i would take that much :P for me its just wastage ^^

Yeah I kn ow the problem. We in Germany can buy only Shisha with 5 Percent moistness. Normally Shishas have 20 or more percent :c . This is because of an older law. So when someone here wants to import tobacco from USA or so, you can only order a small amount and have to pay customs ^^. So we don't want to waste Shisha :D
Back to Topic:
Use something like a spacer ring made from aluminium foil , which u place in the middle of the bowl. A selfmade phunnel .

5 grams?! Seriously? That is a pinch. I smoke 10-15 G a session and that is a tiny amount. I know I weigh it. So you get 10 sessions out of a 50 G pack? LOL Here i thought I was a miser.

Yeah, but SB, AF and other US Tobacco are there expensive as well ^^. And the other EU countrys don't have a tobacco manufacturer, and so they get their tobacco from Egypt, Turkey and rarly from USA. And when u order from a other EU country Shisha u have to pay customs as well -.-. At the end it's pretty much the same if u order directly from the US or from other EU countrys.
Yeah but in Germany u can get dry Havanna or Serbetli with original Havanna or Serbetli Molasses. But no Sb or sth :-p

We dont really have to pay taxes and customs, if we order tobacco from another country of the EU. But hookah isnt that popular in most of the other countries here. We could buy tobacco in britain (e.g.), but taxes in europe are too expensive. with all taxes, a 50g pack of nakhla costs about $6 here in germany and the UK isnt much cheaper
so it's cheaper to buy about 2kg of tobacco in the usa and pay taxes + customs ... but it's more than twice the price you pay in america

european taxes and laws really suck ... that's why i think about going to america after school to open a hookah shop

Hope you have alot of money for the shop, plus laws in the States are getting worse for smoking all the time. Imagine, a country that prides itself on freedom telling it's people that they aren't allowed to do the damage they want to themselves. (IE: smoke)

But if you use so little tobacco, then invest in a shallow clay bowl, mine only uses >10g of tobacco, but I have to be careful as it tend to burn. Good luck.

hehe this was just an funny idea but selling german hookahs like nargilem in the USA could work well .. especially, because i could use one of the best domains for a hookah shop: www.hookah-shop.com
maybe i could do this after my school

anyway, the european laws are more strict, than yours. its forbidden to smoke in bars, smoking on many public places is banned and so on. we cant smoke wet tobacco, advertising for cigarrettes and tobacco is forbidden and so on ...
(e.g. we've been allowed to smoke with 16 until 2007. now its all with 18 - driving, drinking and smoking )

Can't you do this in the USA? They cannot bann smoking and drinking completely for children
But the laws about smoking in the USA, as I know, are good and not too strict.
