With 3/4 exotica on a large egyptian bowl, i have yet to burn anything. I used the ring for a while but that was when I used QLs that get a lot hotter then naturals.
This whole ordeal you're going though, seemslike it would take same amount of time between whatever it is ya doing and the 2 or 3 min it takes to heat a bowl.
I'm using the ring method to keep from burning the shisha onto the foil. The windcover is used because I use my hookah outdoors. But mostly, I'm doing what I'm doing 'cause I'm experimenting
