Default What am I doing wrong?

Hi guys. I just got my KM in the mail today and I couldn't have been more excited! Anyways, I made my first bowl (on the KM at least, I've made a couple before) and it was not a very good experience.

I followed sambooka's instructions (youtube video- how to setup a hookah) or at least I like to think I did. Maybe I did something wrong.

After about three hits, it got really bad where I couldn't inhale without coughing. So I opened the valve, cleared out the smoke and moved the coals around. Still the same. So I had to call it quits after just 20 minutes.

I looked in the bowl afterward and the tobacco was burned. This is not supposed to happen right?

So I'm just asking, what is the likely problem? Is it how I packed the tobacco? Maybe I should put less? Thanks in advance.
