i hope you get this thing done. i can appreciate the the hard work that goes into engineering just about anything (ME undergrad at the moment). it's never just that easy.

Binsky, You should use the search feature to find a recent thread on this same topic as well as some stuff on propane narghile made by Tembo.

that propane heater, SheeCoal, is nowhere to be found. I tried contacting them directly multiple times and have never received a response.

Tembo won't answer inquiries in English but if you can get note out in French or German they respond. The Taiwan based company will respond but all they ever send is a PDF brochure that is no more informative then the website. Not sure what the SheeCoal is.

Im not interested in a propane powered one, mine will be purely electric

The Taiwanese company I mentioned before (a thread exists here about them) is totally electric. Check out the search feature. Here is the link:

the idea of having propane attached to my bowl is more than a little unsettling.

thats close, but not exactly. I think the prototype will be a pretty crude version, but it will serve the purpose of getting a patent so I have time to perfect it.

i was thinking about this

what if there was a "rudder" in the hose port so when you draw it opens telling the bowl or heating source to get hot

Then you would have wires running very close or even into water that lead up to a very large source of electricity

There could very easily be sensors built into the Grommets at the hose or bowl level and instead of keeping the coal in place and putting all that circuitry in there to control the heat and make it hotter instantaneously why not just move it up and down. It stays the temperature of a coal being dragged on but is moved far enough away from the bowl to only provide as much heat as a coal not being dragged on. Probably need a mechanical, electrical, computer, and thermal engineer to really do it right. R&D would be a pain because of the fact that coals don't heat up or coal instantly either. So to mimic perfectly you would have to do tests and research on how and what the coals do while smoking. While it would actually be a fairly simple devise the development to get it just right would be very difficult. It would be possible to make it different. It would be its own thing possibly even smoking differently. Heat management could be more manual even. Try using an infrared thermometer on the coal while someone smokes. Watch how long it takes for it to heat up and see if the whole increasing heat thing wouldn't go about the same speed. You have too many engineers over complicating things. I work with a building full of electrical engineers and believe me that isn't uncommon. Should just be a coil about 33 to 40mm about like a car lighter with a single sensor that connects to a simple automated arm that lifts and drops the "coal". Sure sounds simple but would be pretty tough. However, there is no need for it to get as complicated as all that. Smoking with coal isn't that precise it's just heat with more heat on a draw. Temperatures over a bowl can vary fairly significantly.

My company is actually on the verge of finalizing our prototype. We've smoked using electricity instead of coal, and I can tell you immediately that the flavor is much richer and purer. This is the future, This is Sparx!

I don't mind the idea of something electric for a cleaner smoke but those smokers look like some experimental 1970's prototype electronics

Design has some way to come.
