Hookah Tips 101
Some tips I've picked up from experience:

  • There are usually only two possible problems with a bowl; it can either too clogged to allow air to pass properly or it can stick to the bottom of the aluminum foil/metal screen.

    1. In order to solve the problem of not enough air passing I use darts. I place these darts into the holes before I pack the shisha. That way when I remove the darts there is still a good amount of air passage to burn all of the tobacco.
    2. In order to resolve the sticking to the top issues you can do a few things. I found that butter works, but it tastes terribly. What I currently do is when I notice it sticking, I'll take my metal screen off, get rid of all the sticking portion and flip it so that the most burned part is on bottom.

  • Cool your smoke:

    If you cool your smoke it will make it appear thicker. You can do this a few ways.

    1. You can put ice cubes into the base.
    2. You can put the stem in the freezer if it allows it. (Some hookahs are especially built for this).
    3. Also, on a somewhat related note, milk seems to help with the thickness of smoke as well.
