Default Smoking Questions: What and Where?

Hey guys,

I just had a few questions in an introduction post, Dunkel suggested I post 'em here.

Does anyone smoke dried fruit or anything besides tobacco from there hookah ? I've only smoked tobacco and I've enjoyed it, but if I wanted to share my hookah with my hookah with my girlfriend or my family I'd have to smoke something else. (I don't actually have a hookah, but I've enjoyed my friends and am thinking about investing in one.)

As for smoking inside, I was wondering if the hookah smoke clings to rugs and curtains like other smoke. I know it smells good, but how long would the odor linger if you smoked inside?

The odor doesnt linger in my house. I m not sure if that is because my house reeks of stale beer and urine or not.

Yes people do smoke dried fruit out of their hookahs. I have no experience with it but I m sure someone else will know more.

I've seen dmc use a fruit he got from a pie he was eating lol. But it wasn't dried and took like an hour to get any real amount of smoke.

Unless you re master shisha craftsman you won't be able to do it well. You can mix in fruit, and get the flavors, that is what is done traditionally, but you can't just chop up a bunch of apricots and pour some glycerin and honey on them and smoke that. You will burn the fruit faster then you would think, there is still an amount of moisture in dried fruit. I would stick to tobacco, or maybe our fellow member Hajo knows some good recipes he's seen or tried or made that involve using real fruit.

you can take the fruit and make it into a jam, add that to plain tobacco with a little bit of glycerine and voila, oh stir well

i think you will have better luck using a piece of fruit for a bowl.

as to leaving any smell i dont have any lingering smell as long as i clean out my rig. if i leave it set up and dont trash the bowl i might have a little lingering smell but nothing bad like cigs

I would have to agree, try an apple bowl, or any other hard, manageable fruits, I've tried a pineapple, it was nice. As for the smoke, I haven't noticed it lingering.

Great guys, thanks for all the responses. I'm only concerned about the smoke because I'd be smoking it at my dad's house, and while he's snuck (sneaked? w/e) a few cigars in his "office," I think he'd be hesitant to let me smoke hookah in the house; wouldn't want to buy one if I couldn't enjoy it (and I'm in New England, so it'd be less enjoyable to sit outside for hours on end during the winter).

edit: And yeah, I watched Sambooka's vid for making an apple bowl; definitely interested in trying that at some point.

I smoke inside my bedroom in my apartment usually while playing video games, the odor doesn't linger at all....The smell is pretty much gone by the time you're done. Though the brands with a stronger smell might linger for a little while, the only brand that did that from my experience was Romman, but it smelled great anyway, banana split air refreshner xD

Just a quick question not worth a new topic:

Does anyone have any experience with hookah-shisha.com's generic hookahs? In particular, I was looking at the Egyptian Sphinx, 2 hoser.
