Default Al fakher super heat

The first time I bought Al fakher shisha. I had mango flavor. I used to smoke starbuzz. I have no problem with starbuzz, but it is a little bit expensive. I used the same method to pack Al fakher with Egyptian hookah bowl, double coconut coals (coco Nara)and double foils (heavy duty), but it gets really harsh in few minutes.

I search some videos and posts, and everybody keeps saying to reduce the heat and make the shisha loose. However, after 6-7 attempts, I still got really harsh smoke.

Finally, i decide to fuck it and try to burn all my Al fakher. so I put three coals and single foil. It turns out giving me super thick smoke and no harsh. Bad side is that it only lasts for an hour. Maybe a new method to pack Al fakher??

Usually AF is a bit heat sensitive, the bowl needs a few minutes to heat up before you start puffing.
try the following:
a sprinkle or semi dense pack below the rim
single layer HD foil with small holes or HMD
2-3 cubes/flats half on the bowl, maybe a wind cover to build heat up
let it cook for about 3-5 mins
remove wind cover
start puffing away
move coals around the outside of bowl, working your way closer to the centre as the session passes 30-40 mins
longevity with AF is around 1 hour to 1 hour 15 mins on a 20g pack

points to consider
unglazed bowls may reduce flavour
porcelain bowls heat up too fast & burn shisha- requires a bit of effort to get it right with unfamiliar shisha and or charcoal
