Unhappy Tangiers Packing Trouble

So...I can't seen to get the tangiers packing technique right.
ive watched a lot of videos on it and I've tried it a number of times
but no matter what i do i still manage to burn the tobacco.
First off I start by mixing around my shisha,
then I pack the bowl using a regular fork leaving the shisha
about an 8th of an inch above the rim.
Then comes the foil test, i hold the bowl in my hand
while I compress the shisha down into the bowl,
making sure there is little to no indentation of the middle spire
I lift up the foil, putting it tight over the bowl and poke my wholes with the same fork I used to pack the bowl,
I put holes everywhere except in the middle.
I use 3 coconaras on a medium caravan phunnel bowl and I can't help but get harshness.
I'm pretty sure it's acclimated right. I left it on foil for about 26 hours
until it had no soy sauce/bbq smell. I take off the foil and its all stuck to the foil and burnt .
Am I doing anything wrong?
I need some pointers because im a noob to the Tangiers world lol
