Re: Your Techniques During Setup
Depending on the tobacco, I will use either a tight, overpace (Nakhla or DM), or a loose pack (most other tobaccos). I use a single layer of HD foil and two coconara coals for my smaller Mya bowl and three coconaras for my larger bowl. I use just plain water in the base. I rotate the coals frequently to maintain an even heat distribution and management. Smoke happy.
Al Fakher Large Solid and a bowl of DM . . . life is good!
