Default How long does it take to preoare your hookah?

Hey guys,

It might be a stupid question but I was wondering how long does it take u to prepare your hookah for smoking. Usually, it is no more than 5 minutes for me (filling the vase, lighting coals, and preparin the bowl)

I would say it takes me about 8 minutes because I am new to hookah and take my time getting things setup. That dose not include the time I spend cleaning my hookah before each use. Not every time I fill a bowl, just before each daily use that is.

Fill a bowl, fill a base, grab a hose go downstairs light a coal turn on the television find something good to watch or start a DVD. I would say 5 to 10 minutes depending on if there is some discussion as to what flavor.

About 3-4 mins to pack the bowl, add water, pock holes, but takes about 8 mins for coals to light so i usually take my time and do it slow so everything gets done at the same time

Damn you guys are quick, takes me 15 mins. Fill the base, lite the coals, pack the bowl, wash my hands, put it all together, find my hose, find a movie, flip the coals, pick a movie, get the coals, settle down and take the first pull.

about 10 minutes here. The longest part is lighting the coals. Packing a bowl and filling the base takes only about 2 minutes.

I don't usually rush, so it takes me around 5 minutes, depending on what coals I am using, and if I have to wash out my hookah or not, sometimes I will smoke out of it, and if I still have shisha I just wait until the next day to clean it out.

the last few weeks i have been cleaning my hookah before i smoke instead of right after, so 5-10 to clean then 5-8 to set up since the coals need to light up

I do it subconsiously now so I can't even tell you sometimes. Maybe I've been inhaling coal dust for too long. :O

Normally around 15 mins. I usually have to wait for the coals for a good 5-8 mins after the hookah itself is set up. I hate gas burners

10-15 min for me, sometimes longer if i do a thorough cleaning with lemon juice and baking soda. But i usually light the coals, go get some ice/water and fill base, then pack bowl, then flip coals, then poke holes, then find which hose to use with whatever flavor i have, and a nice drink to go with it.

About 7-8 minutes depending on how touchy my coals decide to be.

Turn on stove, Place coals on stove, Brush out the Stem, Fill vase with water / ice, assemble pipe, pack / foil bowl, put coals on bowl, move to room, smoke.
