Re: First nakhla
I use a large Egyptian bowl with nakhla that has been loosened up and unpacked. After that I just use normal foil (not HD unless I have it) and a couple CH coals. A wind cover at first to heat the bowl and then on and off as I see fit. the coals start on their small sides and move to their largest sides as the bowl reaches optimal temperature.
The tobacco is nto packed tight in the Egyptian but is about a medium pack. Not fluffed but not tight. To allow for airflow.
