Default Broken Bowl

So I had my first fallen soldier tonight. I dropped my primary phunnel bowl that I use and it shattered. I've got a cheap off brand one to use for now but since I need to get a new one I was wondering if anyone had a specific suggestion for a phunnel bowl particularly for tangiers. I'm thinking possibly a tangiers phunnel.
Any help is appreciated.

Yes they are banned.

As for a bowl for Tangiers, I have a 2013 Tangiers small and Crown micro that I use and they work just fine.

Moosh is right. Tangiers small or Crown.

Well I smoke by myself mainly and had one that used 12-15 grams per bowl and that's what I'm looking for again. and the Tang Small look to be 20-30 grams per bowl correct?

If you want to use a small amount of tobacco go with a Pico or 7ico. I smoke solo and use a 2013 small for it, but I'm also really lazy and don't like to have to worry about heat at all.

why do you have to worry less about the 2013 small for heat compared to the Pico or the 7ico? just based on the area that's receiving heat?

Pretty much. Less surface area means easier to heat, which means easier to overheat.

Kinda what I assumed. I haven't had any issues with my previous bowl. It was a bit wide for only holding about 15 grams.

I thought you were the one who love to overheat your tobacco tevas?

Go with the Tangiers small. My Pico gets very minimal use because it's a pain to use.

I love to hit my tobacco with a ton of heat, this is true. I don't love flash frying to the tobacco to a crisp because I didn't move a coal soon enough and ruining a bowl.

I have 3 2013 smalls, 1 pre 2013 small, and 2 picos. I bought the picos prior to the 2013 smalls coming out, as the pre 2013 small used a ton of tobacco. Since I got the 2013 smalls I haven't touched the picos.

Hmmm maybe I'll have to do some looking at the 2013 small as well. The trivial problems of not moving a coal and killing a great bowl of tangiers. I think we've all had that issues at least once or twice.

Right now I just have issues justifying buying a lotus for the cost. I just heat manage for now. I'm hoping the windcover I'm getting will help some of that management as well.

You just haven't hit sloth levels of lazy yet. Once you get there you will figure out how glorious the lotus really is.

Just buy the lotus. It's amazing. It makes things so much easier. Just drop the coals in and smoke. No need to fumble around with tongs and coals.

Is there much of a learning curve to the lotus or is it super easy to get a hang of.

You pack the bowl, you put the lotus on the bowl, you put coals in the lotus, you let it heat up, you smoke and be happy. =]

Make sure the lotus is on the bowl, that's about the extent of the learning curve, lol.

As Moosh said, Pico doesn't have many fans.
