2. Preparing the molasses
Place the metal charcoal tray on the pipe, the rubber grommet in clay bowl then finally the clay bowl onto the pipe to ensure an air tight seal (see diagram below).
Take a small piece of aluminium foil, big enough to cover the opening of the bowl. Wrap the foil over the top so that the surface is tight. Use a toothpick to punch 5-6 holes in the foil. You may want to suck on the mouth piece to see if enough air flows through the pipe. If its an effort to draw air you may want to make some more hole or ensure the tobacco is not too tightly packed. Try to make one of the holes go right through into one of the the holes in the bowl.
3. Lighting the charcoal
Congratulations, your Shisha pipe is now ready to smoke! Suck on the hose (with a mouth tip on the end of the hose if necessary) to draw smoke. we advise sucking gently to start with so the molasses heats gently, sucking too hard will result in the top molasses burning which will taint the rest of if with a charred taste. Long gentle draws will help the heat pass through the tobacco.
