Re: Bowl Pictures / Coal Placement
I generally poke 5 holes in the foil, it doesn't limit suction and it keeps your tobacco hotter, as well as heating it faster.
I don't pack the bowl tight, I sprinkle the shisha in - maximizing airflow through it.
I use a 35mm coal and run it in a circle around the outside of the foil, getting the most even burn possible. I move it about a 5th of the way around the circle every 5 hits or so-- I move it more often when the coal is first lit to get all of the shisha hot.
