Eat. Sleep. Hubbly

Just thought that today I would show you all how I make my Hubbly Bubbly or Hookah:
Step 1
Start by filling the base or bowl of the hubbly with water so that the pipe, that goes into the water, goes below the water line for 2 to 3 fingers deep. I like to add some ice cubes to give a cold and refreashing taste to the smoke. If you want to make the smoke thicker than add tablespoon or two of milk will help.

Step 2
Then take the head of the hubbly, where the flavour sits, and fill that with the flavour of your choice, carefully break up the molasses so that it is not joined into bigger pieces. Fill the head with molasses until it is reasonably full and cover with foil, preferably with heavy duty foil so that the coal doesn't burn the flavour. Then take a toothpick and poke little holes in the foil but do not make too many.

Step 3
The final step is to light the coal, quick lights work but try for organic coal as they burn better and give off a less burnt taste. Place the coal on the side of the foil and head and move occasionally, this is so the coal does not sit in one spot and burn the flavour.

Thats how I make my hubbly but there are a number of ways to do this.
