Re: First try at tangiers- very dry smoke
You most likely under packed or you put waaay too much shisha (yes it is possible of putting too much tangiers tobacco in a phunnel). Were juices running down all over the bowl? If so, that means too much tobacco.
Ugh I never got this crap to smoke either. But usually, its heat management that is the prob when the smoke isn't all that great if you pack it right.
