Play with your Nakhla before you smoke it to get ALL stems out and to get the leafs broke up. Do not PACK it in. Sprinkle it and level it.
1 coal
1 layer foil
1 hole in center (all the way through)
6 to 8 holes halfway between center and rim (toothpick size)
Windcover as needed

The clouds are not enormous but the flavor is very nice.

As PL said, and I quote
no need to pull stems out, i never do and it smokes fine. if you can manage your heat you shouldnt get issues
