Default Vortex Bowl Prep...

Ok so the vortex bowl is way nice, but I think it could be even better, so how do you set yours up, from shisha packing to coal placement? Thanks.

fluff shisha in like usual up to the holes, foil, I poke 3 circles with a thin needle, and use 2 coco naras placed on opposite sides of the bowl.

This is what I've found works with my set-ups and the Vortex bowl....

Stir shisha - mix up the juices well. For everything BUT the new cut of the AF that gives a throat issue, fluffy pack into the bowl just below the line of the holes on the center piece. AF throaty stuff, denser pack - slightly tamp down the shisha instead of leaving fluffy.

1 layer of HD foil, with 2 sets of holes: outside the outer edge and 5 closer to the ceter.

Use a windcover and either 2-3 coco's, 2 -1.5" to 1.75" stick type or 1-1.5 QL's broken in half, placed around the egde. Put coals on and cook for 2-5 min with windcover on and should draw smoke on the first draw.

I do it exactly like Mr. Bungle, BUT I use 3 Coco Naras. I use no wind cover though because mine can't fit over the Vortex bowl. I need a bigger one. Anyways, I think you will have great success this way but also a tip, if you use 3 Coco Naras be careful about which tobacco you use. Two will do the trick just fine, the reason I use 3 is for more smoke, however, when I was using Romman tobacco my smoke got harsh. I like to experiment to get the best out of whatever I'm using. But the 3 layers of holes and 2 Coco Naras is probably your best bet, good on you Mr. Bungle
