Re: Nakhla Packing
I think your issue was the amount of coals. Nakhla is a dryer tobacco and I'm not sure that 3 coals are needed on a vortex.
But yeah, pull your old egyptian bowl out, fluff your tobacco in, leave some space in between the foil and the top of the tobacco, never pack it down, poke your holes and enjoy. its a dryer tobacco but very intense flavor, so you usually need less heat than with something like Starbuzz or Tangiers.
