Default Re: Your tobacco shouldn't touch the foil

here is a little science behind this. the coals burn anywhere from 450-500 degrees Celsius. Tobacco burns at around 500-600 degrees Celsius. The molasses that the tobacco is coated in burns at around 290 degrees Celsius (the boiling point for glycerin). If you have tobacco touching the foil, then it will burn faster than the tobacco not touching the foil, simple as that.
