Re: Harsh Smoke
It really just sounds like you may be overheating your bowl or letting your shisha burn. Are you placing your coals on the outer edges and keeping the tobacco a decent distance away from the foil? Knowing how to pack the perfect bowl(s) does come with experience, so just keep at it until you notice a full rotation of friends smoking with no real difference in taste. Mess around with wind covers if you think it's not hitting hard enough.
Before i knew how to properly prepare my bowls i'd just suck it up and think harsh smoke was part of the process, once you have a successful no cough session, where you only pack a new bowl because no flavor is left you will be pumped!!! Best way to check you are doing it right is when you remove your foil after a good hour (varies) and nothing is hanging off of the foil but the shisha is still baked black!
