Re: Need help from the Hookah GODS
Honestly it looks like you are over packing your bowls. When I first started I had much the same issue. Try using just a little less tobacco and split the coal in two placing one half on each side of the bowl.
If you look at the second picture of the bowl the foil has been pulled down either by suction or pressed down by the process of poking holes putting it right on top of the tobacco. If you use a heavy duty foil and make sure it stays nice and tight it may help.
