Default Re: New to Hookahs... FAIL after FAIL...need adive...

I'm trying to break up the clumps and lightly lay it in there, slightly below the rim of the bowl.

When I peel the foil off, none of it is stuck to the foil, which means I'm packing it low enough, correct? Also, some of the shisha at the top is blackened and hard. Is that how it properly burns, or is it burnt?

I am moving the coals, and using a coil burner to heat them up. They seem red all the way through when I put them on the foil, but as they get smaller I notice they kind of turn black. Is this normal, or should I let them sit on the burner longer?

I'll try to pack less shisha, see if that works.

I wouldn't think the tobacco is old, since I've tried three different brands. They couldn't all be dried out, could they?
