    you just pack it, light the coal, suck on the tube, smoothest smoke you've ever had.

    I used to prepare the best narguileh in town, must be due to my origins... anyway, get some flavored tobacco molass ( tumbak in arabic), the best brand for apple has to be "al bustan".


    pack the bowl, and put tin foil over it (probably not pc, but this is how it is done). Pierce holes in tin foil.


    water hase to be cool, you can put some ice cubes in there if you want.


    take auto-ignition charcoal (the kind used for incense) and light it. Do not smoke until the briquet is glowing, ie has fully ignited because of a chemical used to light it. ignition spreads around.


    now smoke, moving the charcoal around everyonce in while to light the whole bowl.


    you'll be smoking for 1 hour or 45 minutes at least ,so make sure you have time in front of you

    Old post, but in case your still reading it: Some hints



    To light the coals, stick them on an electric stove element...if you
    dont have an electric stove you can buy a hotplate for pretty cheap



    Dont actually *pack* the bowl...it should be losely sprinkled in



    Ice, Wine, Vodka, and extracts in the water all have different effects and different flavors

    Do NOT pour Vodka on the glowing heating elements! Wrong! Great way to end up in the burn ward of the hospital. Impress you friends and parents! Light yourself andyour houseon fire! Run around screaming! Ya...Common Sense.

    He meant putting vodka in the pipe's water chamber, which is fine.


    whisky's more common though.


    Hell been reading some people put salvia in the bowl these days, used to be a little kif but cannabis salvia plus alcohol in the water and you'd probably have a mean nargileh...

    Mint hookah for some reason gets you buzzed a lot easier than other flavors .. dont ask me why just from my experience and i asked the guy at the store and he said that its not a myth its true ... apple is my favorite flavor by the way .. wine and hookah is a good combo
