Default Re: Some help for heat management for Nahkla,

As to the bowl pack, I overpack Nakhla (just over the rim of the bowl) and tamp it down flat. Make sure to move the coals OFTEN and at the first hint of burnt - REMOVE the windcover and/or a coal. It's doable, but make take practice

Good Luck!.
and most importantly, break the coals into little pieces. Big coals burn tobacco fast
