well let me start by saying that I have been smoking hookah for a solid 3-4 years. I currently have 10 hookahs and over 65 flavors.

Any other people in the area smoke hookah?

Question: can you give me some more info about hookah?

As for hookahs, there are differn't types of hookahs. They all generally work the same. Some may flow better while some may look better. Height does not really make a differnce in smoke temp. It's really just about heat management and how you packed the bowl.

Hookahs generally come in 3 differn't styles. Egyptions are teh classic pipe. The stem generally has the same design and are generally made of brass or stainless steel. Syrians are made of brass with a bit more artsiness too them. These are generally very reliable when it comes to durablity. You also have modern hookahs which are generally more for looks. People generally stay away from modern hookahs because of the quality. They are 99% of the time made in China. The only modern hookah I will buy is MYA. MYA is known for the quality and material they use. There are the more populat brands of hookahs..Khalil mamoon, Magdy Zidan, MYA, just to name a few.

As for tobacco its endless. Many people seem to ask, "which is the best brand?" I just tell them what flavor are you looking for and lead them to the right direction. Brands are also known for quality, consistancy and best bang for the buck. The more popular brands are Starbuzz, Al Fakher, Nakhla, Layalina, and Fantasia...

As for coals it goes on and on. Coals for hookahs are made to smoke hookah. Do not ever use BBQ coals! Hookah coals are ment to burn clean with little to no taste. There are two differnt kinds of coals, Quicklites and Naturals. Quicklites are easy to use, lites quick and has very little to no coal taste. They are round tablets that use a match or lighter to ignite and the chemical sparks away like gunpowder. After the coal is ashing or bright red its good to use. As for brands I would stick with 3 kings for quicklites. they have been the most consistant coal ever.
Natural coals are more of a pain to light. These do not have any type of chemical to light. Instead you need to use a stove to light. Naturals generally take about 5-8min to light completely, but offer a 99% no coal taste. They also last longer then the quicklites but are also sometimes a pain to break. There are many brands that make natural coals. They are generally all about the same. The main difference between them are ash. Some ash more then others, while some burn hotter then others. I have been using coco-nara's for the past year and swear by them. They are also made from coconut shell whereas other coals are made from tree's. They are also cut into nice little cubes for ease.

Well thats enough typing for tonight...

Hookah tobacco has very little nicotine generally .05% or .5%

Is it bad for you? of course it is. think about it, anything but oxygen going into your lungs are bad. How are they compaired to cigs? This has been debated for years. Many people say that a session of smoking hookah is compaired to a pack of cigs...untill they provide some hard facts to back up statements, I still beleive that it is not as bad. I did read a article not too long about about stating that a low amount smoking a few times a week was showed about 50% less cancer causing cartagines(sp?) then a smoker. This researcher provided hard facts and stated his equipment. He also stated that the worse part was the coal. Especially when the small amount of still lit coal goes thru the hole and burning the tobacco.

Let me give you some input on some of your comments, on the height yes it does matter the taller it is, the colder the smoke is. The shortest it's produce my heat in the smoke. I pefer the med size one. Remember brass will rust over time and Stainless Stail will last longer. If you do self start charcoal. 3 kings are the best brand.

StarBuzz is the best brand, but pricy. Al-fakhree is alot cheaper brand. Oh I get my stuff from my country or from my freind warehouse that he is working on getting a contract with StarBuzz. He sells it to all those shisha cafe in VA like Prince, Oasis, Aladdan, Tarboush, etc.

This is not true. Yes, generally speaking length of smoke travel will generate a longer travel period which decreses temps. But if you compare a 12" hookah with a 36" hookah with room temp water and proper heat management, the temps are the same.....

Now for the brass statement. Brass does not rust! Solid brass will tarnish. Tarnish is simply the outer layer combining with elements it is exposed to and thus losing its luster. Brass is an alloy of copper/zinc. Remember that brass does not have steel/iron in it so it won't rust. Rusting involves a degradation of the product itself due to oxygen.;)
