Tangiers is harder to burn because of how wet it is. Some tobacco touching the foil actually helps in heat transfer but too much will eventually burn it depending on how you manage coals.
Tangiers should be packed in the bowl as dense at it is when it settles in a container. To those that have never loaded a bowl Tangiers style, it will seem overpacked.
