for some info on that sort of thing.
i honestly didnt find the black style stuff to be very hard to smoke (kass super from nakhla) maybe im missing the flavor i should be getting but it seems fine to me, i will have to find a knowledgeable middle easterner to try it and tell me if i am wasting my tobacco or not. the black style stuff is interesting no doubt but for sure not for everyone and not an everyday smoke for me
