If I'm by myself, want a short session, or just don't have that much shisha, I just make it a bit fluffier and spread it around more, and it smokes fine. Toasted all the way through, and no harsh taste or flavor oddities.

Standard bowls are hard for me as the heat management and burning issues are kinda problems for me. My bowl with the snap on wind cover is a pita for burning, and my regular standard sucks with heat management. Especially if there's even a slight draft.
pop that stupid windcover off that mod bowl, thats what i did and it is much more usable. once i did that and tried that bowl thats pretty much all i use except for the occasional appearance of my phunnel. if you get a normal wind cover it will make it easier to use too but if your having really bad heat management issues try leaving more space with it and keep the coals on the out side
