Default Re: Vase Filling

The heavier foil use 1 if a lighter normal household foil use two the thickness of the foil helps with your heat management so that the tobacco cooks not burns. Thicker foil more even heat spread better heat conductivity and takes longer to heat up but retains more heat. the thinner the foil heats up quicker more prone to burning the tobacco thus the second layer to aid the first (make it thicker) Some tobaccos are more forgiving than others in the heat department and others need more heat Desi Murli needs the heat to get going then less heat to keep going Nakhla is more forgiving with heat where Al Waha burns easily that is what the 1 or two layers of foil helps with
