Acclimating isn't actually necessary. Its just advised. I acclimate and also load a bowl as soon as I open a package of tangiers and its always fine. Although for extremely strong flavors like clove, I recommend acclimating (or drying out) for a few days or even a week. other than that, just load the bowl loosely and leave a good .25 to a half centimeter between the foil and tobacco and arrange your holes to the type of coals you use. Enjoy that tangiers bro!
