Re: Had our first smoke today....some questions
double layer it for sure like sam said, if your using quick light coals start out with one and add another if the smoke is iffy. and its pretty much natural for it to look burned (at least for me it is) as long as you dont physically burn it (and believe us you would know if you burned it) its okay.
packing could also be a prob as well, too little or too much messes up the works.
thats a good and bad thing about hookahs, you have to experiment to get that perfect smoke, and you have to learn how to be consistent to have the perfect smoke everytime you throw a coal on that bowl
