Re: What am I doing wrong?
It's got to be the heat.
Make sure the shisha has about 1/4th of an inch seperation between the foil,
next heat up the coals. Make sure the coals are completely red hot and no black/silver/whatever left on them.
Now place the coals on the edges of the bowl, let the bowl heat up (let it sit for 5-10 mins) that way you can use to heat to your advantage and have the bowl heat up the shisha thus causing the coals to not burn the shisha instantly.
Then regularly rotate the coals every 15 minutes. Happy smoking!
