Re: packing the perfect bowl?
al waha does not have huge clouds.
as to the perfect pack, i have started packing differently than i used to. i pack it loosely in (very loose) to the rim and then kind of tamp it down harder than you "normally" pack and make the gap more. you are able to be more aggressive with your heat (gives a bit more smoke and more even over the whole bowl) but the flavor is a touch different but not bad in any way.
