Default How to increase smoke density?

I was just wondering, what kind of additions / modifications I need to do for my hookah in order to increase the thickness of the smoke? How does different types of bowls or packing the bowls change the amount of smoke? Should I stick in the tobacco tightly (not too tight so the air can flow through, of course) or keep it pretty loose?

Tips please!

1. depends on the hookah. thicker stem = more smoke
2. add more coal or put on a wind cover
3. pack tobacco lightly as you described.
4. phunnel and vortex bowls will not let juice drip down the stem so those hold more juice giving you more smoke and flavor.

Mr Bungle covered most of the basics: it comes down to what brand/type of tobacco your using, what type/how much coals (and a windcover), type of rig etc...

Can you explain what you are using/have tried before? I would be easier to understand how you are setting things up now in order to suggest hints as to what to modifiy or change for smoke.

BIG +1 to this! I would rather go for maximum flavor .. it is all about the quality and not the quantity .. trust us!

I know that the flavor is the most important thing and I agree with that, but it's just pure fun to get good flavor and big clouds at once!

Anyhow, the hookah I ordered as my first one is called Sultana Double II and looks like this: http://www.sikaritalo.fi/catalog/ima...tanadoble2.jpg

It was kinda cheap so I wont be sticking to this hookah for very long, propably getting new one next summer or so.

About the windcover, I didn't get on with my hookah so do you have some good hints what should I try to make one? I've heard about people using beer cans, would that help at all and what should I do for the can except for removing the top part?

There are a couple of DIY windcovers in the Homemade Section.

As too the hookah, depending on the quality of the rig and hoses, you may never get the greatest smoke. For now, enjoy the taste and learn with what it comes with. By the time your ready for a new rig, you'll have an idea of what you like (style, brands, methods) and such not.

Mr B is correct. I don't care about huge clouds as long as I get good flavor I'm a happy man.

A diffuser should make the smoke more dense from what I hear. I haven't used one myself.
