Try packing the Nakhla light and fluffy in the bowl, below the foil (so the foil does not touch the tobacco) and then use a coal or two (depending on the size of your bowl) .. cover it with a windcover and then let it just SIT on the bowl and don't smoke it for a good 4 minutes at least. OK, now you are ready! Try it out ... should smoke great .. if it even starts to get a little harsh, go ahead and take the windcover off and adjust your coals. Clear the base and try again without the windcover. Should be ok. Windcover on and off to control heat .. and coals on and off to control heat.

You could always add a little vegetable glycerin too if you want ... just a little a 1/4 teaspoon or less.
