Default Nakhla Mint issues

So all summer i've been smoking AF mint, and i'm running low. I went to a local shop and picked up some Nak mint. I used to smoke Nak mint all the time and so its been a while since i've smoked it since AF. I had a hard time getting it going. I used 1 QL broken in half and there wasn't any smoke. I also noticed the cut wasn't as nice as AF. Weird white strands and stems everywhere.

I used to smoke nak mint all the time without issues. Has it been changed? How do you normally heat manage nak in a small bowl? (10-15g)

White strands? If they are hard than they probably are stems, when I do it I use naturals and its easy to smoke I mean its Nak it can take heat like a bau5.

Might be your problem right there. I know your bowl is small but nak loves heat, like in an inappropriate way. My crown micro phunnel holds 15g at most even when dense packed and I use 2 natural coals plus a wind cover and have never had any issues with it being harsh. Try adding more heat next time by putting 2 whole coals on the bowl but place both about 1/2-1/3 of the way off the bowl.

Thanks for the input, i've never had problems in the past but I know that depending on the brand of tobacco used each has its own specific requirements. When using a mod bowl with nak is it better to sprinkle it in and keep it right below the rim or slightly pack it? I have a vortex so i'll give that one a shot. Maybe 2 coco's will work better than the QL.

Its hard to describe the white bits but maybe I can post a picture. I'm sure its part of the stem or something

I pack nahk fairly densely in a mod bowl- 15 grams or so, three rings of holes -toothpick sized, and one 4omm Golden Ql. That'll smoke nicely for 45 min to an hour.

Do you find it takes a long time to get it warmed up? I packed a mod bow last night, pretty densely and used 2 ql and it took some time to get it going. And it wasn't even that minty. This is getting frustrating!

Are you letting the coals sit for about 5 minutes? Also are you smoking regular nakhla mint or mizo mint?
