A hookah is a type of water pipe that is used to smoke flavored tobacco. Hookahs originated in the Middle East and have become popular in recent years in the United States. In this article, we'll show you how to smoke a hookah pipe. Keep reading to also learn how to set up your hookah and how to choose the right tobacco and coals.
Set Up Your Hookah
The process to set up a hookah is actually very simple, but there are a few things you need to know. The first thing you need to do is remove the mouthpiece and unscrew the base of the hookah. Then, fill the base with cold water until the water reaches the fill line. Be sure not to fill it any higher than the fill line, as this could cause water to seep into the tobacco and affect the flavor. Next, put the rubber grommet on the stem and insert the stem into the base. Now, put the mouthpiece back on and screw the base back onto the hookah.
Choose Your Coals
There are many different types of hookah coals available on the market today. The most popular and affordable type of hookah coal is natural coal. Natural coals are popular because they are the most consistent and provide the best flavor. Natural coals come in two different types: quick lights and natural. Quick lights are pre-lit coals that are easy to light and provide a quick heat-up time. Natural coals are not pre-lit, so they may take a little longer to light, but they provide a longer-lasting heat.
Charcoal briquettes are made of charcoal and are a popular choice for hookah smokers because they are easy to light and provide a consistent heat. However, they can be a little more expensive than natural coals. Briquettes come in two different types: instant light and regular. Instant light briquettes are pre-lit and provide a quick heat-up time while regular briquettes do not come pre-lit and require a little more time to light.
Electric coals are a newer type of coal that are becoming increasingly popular among hookah smokers. They are made of a porous material and come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors. Electric coals are a great option for those who want a quick and easy heat-up time. They are also a great choice for those who want consistent heat because they do not need to be lit and can be plugged into an outlet.
Choose your coals based on your personal preferences. If you want a quick and easy heat-up time, then electric coals are the best choice for you. If you want longer-lasting heat, then natural coals are the best choice.
Use the Right Technique
To smoke a hookah, you'll need a hookah pipe, tobacco, coals, and water. Fill the bowl with tobacco and pack it down gently. Do not pack it too tightly, as this will restrict airflow and make it difficult to smoke. Then, light the charcoal and wait about 10 minutes for it to heat up. Once the charcoal is hot, set it on top of the tobacco in the bowl.
Now, it’s time to smoke! Place your mouth over the opening at the top of the pipe and inhale. This will draw the smoke down into your lungs. When you are finished smoking, exhale slowly through your nose or mouth. There are two ways to smoke a hookah pipe: sucking hard or sucking soft. Sucking hard will produce more smoke while sucking soft will produce less smoke. Some people find that sucking harder makes the smoke taste harsher and sucking softer makes the smoke taste better. Experiment and see what works best for you.
Be sure to keep an eye on the charcoal, as it will need to be replaced periodically. When the charcoal is no longer glowing, it’s time to replace it.
Finally, refreshment is the time after smoking a hookah when you drink water, juice, or any other beverage to help cleanse your palate. This is important because it removes the flavor of the tobacco from your mouth and allows you to enjoy future flavors without them being overpowered by the previous flavor.
