The flavoured wet tobacco that Arabs smoke in hookah pipes can be nice. It's very low in carcinogens, filtered through water and it's more volatile flavour in steam as much tobacco smoke. The little charcoal cubes or buttons used in hookahs are useful too for BBQing and camp fires or home cooking and baking. You can get ones that are covered in black powder and when you light them the black powder catches on and burns over the whole surface immediately leaving a big hot coal.
I like the strawberry flavoured tobacco. I sometimes smoke a hookah at a Lebanese or Turkish restaurant after the meal with flavoured teas or Turkish coffee. Strawberry tobacco and pistachio flavoured Turkish delight or some baklava.
