Before you start, make sure you have all these items:
- Hookah Set (Vase, Metal Stem, Hose, Clay Bowl).
- Flavored Tobacco.
- Hookah Charcoals.
- Aluminum Foil.
- Toothpick or something to poke holes into the foil.
Add water until the level reaches the neck of the vase. The pipe stem should be 1.5-2” into the water.
Place ashtray/coal catcher on the top of the hookah. You are now ready to pack your flavored tobacco.
Cover the bowl with (2) 6” wide aluminum foil. Cover up the top of the bowl and cuff the sides so that the foil tightly covers the bowl down the middle, shiny side down. Heavy-duty brands work best.
Use the thick larger grommet to seal the bowl to the hookah stem. Make sure the bowl is air-tight and well mounted on the stem.
When connecting the hose, ensure it is air-tight using the appropriate rubber grommets.
Take several long pulls of the hookah to get the coal ready. Ensure that the water is bubbling during these pulls.
Using the tongs, move the coal around the bowl to increase or decrease the smoking power on the tobacco. After 20-30 minutes or when you begin to lose smoking power, light up another coal by placing the new coal on top of the old one, and then remove the old coal from the bowl.
