Default funnel?...who needs 'em!

lately I've been smoking my tangiers through my standard clay egyptian using the same method one would normally use w/a funnel and getting great results. Those of you who are sick and tired of burning through massive amounts of tangiers in the standard funnel should give it a shot.I've been using 2- 1/5 pieces of exotica. Anyone else tried this?
It's nice to have a 250g bag last longer than 4-5 days for a change.

Makes sense. I enjoy the hell out of my funnel. Long ass sessions but I should try this some time soon. I get the feeling that acclimation makes more of a difference than actual packing. tangiers was developed before the funnel anyway and intended to be smoked normally.

you pack it down like a phunnel? do you completely cover the holes? If you could take a pic of how you pack and foil it that would be killer.

I like to smoke my Tangiers in regular egpytians now too. I just scoop, pack down, open up the holes in the bottom of the bowl with a skewer, foil and poke holes like a phunnel, and boom! Nice good smoke.

Ya ever notice that the phunnel bowl was marketed specifically for tangiers? and holds a LOT of tobacco? I've always thought it was a marketing technique to sell more tobacco and bowls. Pretty smart marketing actually!
Personally I use a regular egyptian bowl most of the time and the vortex bowl (it holds less then a small phunnel) .. if I am smoking with a lot of people and the tobacco is realllllly wet only then will I use a small phunnel.

I think I understand what you do with your bowl Abu .. but some pics may be helpful for other people Cheers!

i was looking forward to maybe getting soem tangiers smoking tonight but i left it out last night to try and acclimate and my roommate turned off the freaking AC cause his girlfriend was cold (told him 3 weeks ago to get a space heater for his loft) any way the humidity was really high in here this morning so last night was a waste of time for acclimation

for pull at least ive found you dont even need to really push it away from the holes much, as long as you just pick it up from the container and drop in with a little push, some times its a touch hard but nothing major

Acclimation is just to match the relative humidity in the tobacco to the relative humidity in the air. Unless you have central air and never turn it off you will be acclimating fully everytime you want to smoke.

well its very humid here so the tangiers isnt getting to how it should be, i even called eric and talked to him for about 10-15 mins on whats going on with it and he said it may just be to humid here right now (when i talked to him the relative humidity inside was 55-62% about, now its 49-50 as i type so its gotten better in the last week or so humidity wise).

yes its getting it to match relative humidity but according to eric its also letting the shisha dry out a certain amount or at least getting moisture out

keep in mind, tangiers is a wet massel and w/out the funnel you may have to do a little cleaning after you smoke. Also, because the funnel holds the juices in the bowl, the flavor tends to last abit longer in a funnel but because your smoking less tobacco in the egyptian this isn't really a problem. The flavor starts to tapper off around the time the bowl is about done.
