    Granted I come from a background where I do own and on rare occations use a hookah, but I've never known anyone who used them for pipe tobacco. Can you actually smoke "regular" tobacco from them, and how harsh would it be that you would need the water to filter it. I'm really not trying to be a smart @$$ I'm just really curious.

    What is everyone's hookah experience?

    I couldn't tell ya. The last time I tried to clinch a hookah when I was working in the garage I drug the damn thing off the bench and broke it. And that happened before I got one good tamp and relight. :ohyh:

    Honestly you probably could smoke pipe tobacco out of the hookah but there isn't really a point. The flavor will be lacking and probably taste terrible lol plus the sheesh for hookah is specifically made to be heated up by the coals allowing a good mix and flavor, with pipe tobacco it would be a fun experiment but would most likely yearn terrible results haha

    Good question, I've thought about this myself. I've never tried the hookah myself, but my daughter goes to the hookah bar down in Portland once in a while and says it's good. I would think the water would mute the tobacco flavor considerably, but it might be good.

    I'm gonna take a guess, but I'm thinking if it's not to be inhaled in one medium, then it's probably not going to make a difference what u use to smoke it......that's a guess ;)
