Gonna dry it out really well and smoke a bowl. Never had the technique to get pass half a bowl before.
Drying out is key to enjoying FVF (most SG blends, actually). With FVF, I like to lightly rub it out into smallish shreds to dry, then load the larger pieces kinda loosely in the bottom of the bowl with the smaller pieces packed more densely on top.
This . I also prefer FVF in taller chamber pipes, such as a billiard or in my Radiator pipe. I tend to get more flavorful smokes from FVF with those pipes. Also a patient cadence has proved beneficial when the flake is dried out properly. Looks like you're gonna have a great smoke!
In the past I used to pack the flake tightly, but my recent epiphany was the realization that the Flake expands quite a bit when lit.
Well my first bowl of FVF in several years is lit!
I think I over dried the flakes but I am smoking it anyways.
It isn't really strong flavored, possibly cause of a lack of moisture, and secondly maybe because of all the the Lat and Vaper blends I have been addicted to recently.
That being said the smoke is nice and cool, dry, and sweet. Sweet to the point that I am starting to freight train in to get more into my mouth .
Next bowl will be much less dry...
