Default Packing Tangiers question

First off, I checked the megathread I swear! I couldnt' find anything.

I have an apple on top bowl and I love it. Is it even possible to properly pack Tangiers into it, or should I just use a Phunnel?

I have my first shipment of Tangiers coming in (I'm normally a Fumari kinda girl) and I don't want to ruin it!

Thoughts?

I never used the apple on top bowl but I can tell you that Tangiers Phunnels work beautifully. I've got three my self, Pico, 7ico and Small. 7ico and Small tend to see the most use whilst Pico just sits there gathering dust (probably because I can use Kaloud Lotus with 7ico and with the Small)

And just to pre warn you, this thread will probably be merged with the Megathread by one of the mods. And welcome to the forum!


edit: also I gotta say, don't worry about ruining a bit of your Tangiers. If it's your first batch you are just bound to mess up some bowls. I'm pretty new to Tang and even though I watched countless of tutorials and read many many a post on packing / heat etc I still messed up quite few bowls. To be honest I still can't get heat quite right with coals and end up using the Kaloud Lotus which to me seems like it was almost designed for Tang - it just takes the heat management worry right out of the equation. (although you still gotta pack it right or else it will not smoke right).

On the bag it says to pack it as densely as you see it when you receive the bag; try to aim for that.

I've never used the apple on top bowl, but I'm sure it's just fine. The Tangiers tobacco has more liquid than many tobaccos, so the phunnel bowl helps keep the juices from running down the stem. The apple on top bowl has a raised spire, so it should do the same thing.

I will say this, the AOT is no good for tang. I never got it to burn right....

Ah- but the real question is: can Johnny pour a respectable G&T?!

I actually really like my AOT bowl, but obviously I'm the odd one out there-I'm just going to buy a small phunnel bowl to pack my Tang in I guess-I'll try packing in the AOT bowl and seeing how it goes-maybe if it works well I'll make a video for the 3 other people that actually like the AOT bowl.

Well by all means let us know how it goes. I've been curious about AOT bowls, more as a novelty really but still intrigued.

It's definitely seen as overpriced (although many see the Lotus as overpriced as well)-however it is unbreakable, cleans easily, retains heat well, and eliminates the need for a screen/foil, poking holes, and a wind cover (although I don't see the small lips of the tray really helping that much with wind, but I use huge Fantasia coals, so maybe it would help more with CN or flat coals.

I havent used an AOT myself but something tells me tang wont work very well with it. looking at pictures the bowl looks rather deep compared to a funnel. I know from experaince tang is almost impossible to smoke from a vortex, and it looks rather similar in spherical shape of the bowl to the AOT. Id recommend if you have a standard egyptain to try the foil funnel method. I could make a video if needed. I used that method to smoke my first 2 batches of tang and it worked 10 times better then a vortex, but id say only 1/2 as good as the phunnel.

tbh, Just get yourself a Tang small or any other phunnel (Except chinese phunnel bowl) in the end its gonna save you from burning a lot of Tangiers trying to pack it in a AOT and less stress.
