I think Dee's will work better with wet shisha, as you said.
I can confirm that my method works with Nakhla and also Tangiers. The Tangiers makes a hell of a mess of the stem though. Whatever tobacco you use (or packing method for that matter), you need to play around with the heat management.

I would think the more tobacco you stuff in there, the better it will take the heat!
See me on YouTube!
