Re: No foil ?
You can actually smok regular flavoured tobacco without foil.
When you drop the coal on it slowly, the molasses form sort of a caramel like layer between the coal and the tobacco so the tobacco does not actually burn.
So yes, you can smoke all Shisha tobaccos without foil. I've seen it but I haven't tried it myself.
