Default Re: Medium Phunnel Help!!

Hey Billy!

Well, how about trying to get it going a little slower? Put the coals on the outter "edge" of the bowl, and rotating along the outter edge (so they are kinda hanging off a little). It may take a little longer to get the smoke billowing, but once it comes up to temp you will be good to go! As the coals diminish, try moving the coals in towards the middle as you continue to rotate them. Hope that makes sense?

Another thing, leave a little cushion of space, between the foil and the top of the shisha. Another thing you could try is to double foil, or use one sheet of Heavy Duty foil. It is trial and error to get the heat management down for a particular shisha and coal combination ... but if you start slow, it is easier to fix then starting fast and burning the shisha right off the bat!

Hope that helps! Let us know...
