Default Re: Shiny Side Down

Supposedly its meant for better heat transfer to the shisha in the bowl. The shiny side up would cause the shisha to take a little longer to get heate up. In my experience, there's no difference at all. I've tried smoking both ways, and I still get the same flavor and same thickness of smoke. But some claim that it makes a difference if you have it on the wrong way. I think it's BS. The small distnce from the foil to the shisha would make it heat up quickly regardless of what side you put the foil on.
