Default Has anyone here ever put vegetable/olive oil in the base?

I’ve put a lot of stuff in my base before, just to try things out, but I never used vegetable oil before, since it feels like one of those things that might not work out… Has anyone here every used vegetable oil in the base? What was it like?

I cant for the life of me come up with a reason why anyone would. It would be too viscous to allow a draw properly. You mght bust a lung trying to pull through that

But if you try, tells how it goes.

Don't do it man. Vegetable oil is combustible, and you're dealing with live coals.

It could also be a nightmare to clean- if there's any residue left at all in your stem or base, it will go rancid, and will polymerize. It will taste bad. In order to get it all out, you'd need some sort of surfactant, which would leave its own nasty-tasting residue...

Why would anyone have a desire to do this?

Then you put the base on the burner, throw in some chicken wings, good to go.

Melt 1/2 stick of butter over low heat, stir in:
1/2 c Franks hot sauce
1/4 c Sriracha (the Sriracha is the key here)
1 TBSP dark brown sugar
2 tsp cider vinegar

remove from heat and set aside.

season 1/4 c cornstarch with salt, black pepper, and cayenne.
dry 3 lbs of chicken wings (separated) with paper towels, and toss with the cornstarch mixture.

Heat peanut oil in your hookah base over med-high heat. If your hookah base is already being put to better use, a dutch oven will work, too-
the oil should be about 2 1/2" to 3" deep, heated to about 360°
fry the wings in several small batches for 10-15 minutes, remove to a wire rack, and toss with sauce.

Don't forget to check the other burner to see how the coals are doing...

He always has pee. Or blood. Or wringing out his socks.

I think that Bear would trap a wild boar and make it pee in the base.

I'm sure it goes well with biting a live fish in half.
