Who is right? Is it a combination of both?
Also, does anyone here use 2 layers of foil when covering the shisha in the bowl during preparation? If so why do you prefer to smoke that way?
Your friend is totally wrong, clearing the chamber doesn't make the session shorter, is better to miss 2 inhalations than being dying of coffings. And I always use 2 layers of foil because is a measure I use to control the heat from my coals.
