Smoking from a clay bowl?
So I'm really used to using my funnel bowl, but I dug up my old standard clay bowl because I don't always want such a huge smoking session, and I was just wondering...
Can anyone smoke effectively out of these? I've messed with it so many times, and every time my shisha burns, I've tried less shisha to have a nice gap, more shisha because perhaps that was too little of an amount and would burn, I've tried less coals, better placement....the list goes on.
Does anyone have a successful process for smoking from a standard clay bowl? I get nothing but burnt shisha.
Any insight on this matter would be greatly appreciated.
