Re: I just dumped AF DA in the bin
AF: I just pack it tightly in a phunnel or a vortex, throw 3 nats on it with a windcover and let it reach the point where it "almost burns but not really". Give or take 10 minutes. Then I take off one coal and the windcover and smoke it like any regular shisha. What I get is smooth smoke, no tickle or harshness.
It sucks that we have to go through all of this trouble to make Al fakher smoke right. There are plenty of tobaccos that you can just scoop into a bowl, foil over, throw some coals on top and it'll smoke like a champ right away. AF is a different kind of animal I'm afraid.
