Re: Packing Nakhla in a standard egyptian..
Reg NAK is a lot different then the others when i pack nak in a standard Egyptian i like to go for a much denser pack, but with a little more then avg distance from the foil. Then once the HD foil is in place i like to make ring of holes that push all the way to the bottom of the bowl. Then a center hole all the way through into the shaft of the bowl. I have found this method of packing leads to massive cloud, 0 burning, and a medium-easy draw. I don't like to "sprinkle" nak, i load it in there, but not nearly an over pack.
What and how many coals are you using, to little shisha can over heat very fast no matter how tolerant the brand is
