I have heard it can be done but I wouldnt bet on it. The planets have to be perfectly aligned to smoke Tangiers and if you throw a monkey wrench into the equation like a "Standard Egyptian Bowl" you may just knock the alignment off so bad none of us will be able to smoke it All kidding aside though, I heard it can be done, just give it a try and experiment with different hole patterns and packing technique and you may stumble onto something.

it smokes fine in a normal bowl, the local lounge i goes to packs it in a normal bowl and ive never had as god of a session out of my phunnel with tangiers compared to the local place. acclimation is the biggest thing with tangiers, packing is not as huge of a deal.

i leave the center open in a standard bowl and pack it kinda firm around the side and leave a small gap below foil. poke holes like you do on a phunnel and go at it. smokes fine

I sometimes do this. You just pack it about an inch over the rim, maybe a half inch, and then press it down. The phunnel just prolongs the life of the Tangiers tobacco and adds a slight bit of flavor. Smoke is generally the same.

If you sacrifice a small goat, you will be able to smoke in a regular bowl, just be sure to use a silver knife. If you don't have a small goat to sacrifice and silver knife then buy yourself a Vortex bowl, it will be cheaper on your wallet when it comes to packing it with tobacco. (It's smaller then the small phunnel)

Cheers!

And if you come back with questions of why it tastes like BBQ or harsh or whatever, be sure to do a search, there is a thread by Scoop with pictures ..

with tangiers lucid you should be able to use any phunnel and not even worry about acclimation, however, i rally hate ceramic bowls, just get a clay egyptian, just about the same price, however I feel like the material is better.

i was going to post a thread about some problems ive been having with tangiers.

ive been smoking it for years and its always been fine untill as of late (since i got my new hookah 42'' km)

i cannot get the heat down right or something its either burning or there is no smoke going on.

ive read countless threads especially a good one by scoop that helped but nothing. ive tried using smaller hoses ( currently use a razan) and ive tried different phunell bowls from the small to the large no difference. ive used 2 different coals all with the same effect massive coughing about 10 mins into the session. or just blowing air out.

anybody got any advice?


sorry to thread jack

psst john, the clay and ceramic bowls you speak of are all ceramics its just a matter of glazed or not glazed, once clay gets fired it transforms to ceramics

Here we go again. No clay and ceramic are different in this context. Ceramic bowls refer to the thin mod type bowls that the material is usually white. Clay bowls refer to the brownish red looking thick bowls that are usually glazed brown.

Just buy a bunch of standard Egyptian Bowls (cheap) .. and some standard tobacco .. people have been doing it this way for a long friggen time! No need for gimmicks and goat sacrifices! Geez is it really worth the trouble? From my experiences it isn't .. but that is just my opinion.

LOL! What the hell do you think they smoke in the middle east? An Egyptian Pipe, Standard Bowl, Standard Tobacco .. works for them and has for, like I said, a looonnnggg friggen time!

As for the bowl discussion ..
And for bowls, I like the unglazed bowls .. My favorite is the Saudi Bowl that Hookah Company sells. BUT if I use one with glaze on it, I will preferably use the Vortex from SaharaSmoke.com

You can easily use the Vortex bowl for smoking tangiers. Plus it is a little smaller then the small phunnel so you can save yourself some tobacco.

You can use a standard Egyptian bowl .. just poke lots of holes deep in the tobacco and down through the holes in the bottom of the bowl.

But for some helpful advice, please check out scoops excellent thread!

There are so many Tangiers help threads that I'm not even going to reply with an answer.

But OP, you should be a phunnel. Or a Vortex apparently (Get a Phunnel).

Remember, the phunnel bowl isnt really that special, that why I know it can work in the egpytian bowls i have to the ceramics. I tried with all, but tangiers still isnt my bag, it burns quite hot, and for someone w/ acute asthma thats not fun.

I think the phunnel is extremely special and I treat it with the utmost respect at all times. It's lovely and hand-made and made with love just for me!! I would love it more than my own child if I had one.

It can't do shyt for Nakhla though. That has to be smoked with an egyptian bowl for sure.
