Re: Hookah Noob...
If you don't pack high enough, it will be a waste of tobacco and charcoal. First of all, your smoke will be weak. Second, you are wasting your coals because they wouldn't be able to heat the tobacco correctly. Third, the shisha will either burn badly, or not burn at all. You're better off smoking a whole bowl.
you can use the ring method. It works wonders if you want to smoke for only a little bit.
