1 layer of HD foil will do the trick.

Agreed. I always just use one foil. It doesn't matter how many coals or type of shisha.

Ignoring sonofgram...

Try 3 for a while, and then if it gets harsh drop it down to 2.

However, three should work. Make sure they are in a triangle format around the bowl.

One layer of foil. Two doesn't even do anything. Also, AF Mint is the only good AF flavor in my opinion. (In reference to SOG's posts)

AF mint and AF rose are really the only ones that do it for me.

On topic, as scooter mentioned, make sure theyre in "triangle format". also i find it best when you have one corner of each coal pointing in and one out. Each coal half on and half off

Default Re: How many layer of Foil for AL Fakher

i use regular foil, not hd
for all brands i use 1 layer, except af
for af i use 2
i get af to smoke perfect.
the trick to get the best performance out of AF is take most advice and do the opposite.

if someone says sprinkle it in. Dense pack it and even overpack it.
if they say use alot of holes in the foil
reverse the pattern and only put the holes in the middle
if they say rotate the coals, leave them alone and never move them.

If you are using home/regular foils, try using 2 or 3.
For waterpipes, there are special foils, I recommend them.
If your throat is getting itchy, you might want to try to displace the clay bowl from the shaft and puff from the bottom of the bowl for a minute, then place it back but let it rest for a while.

I don't have a personal experience with coconara, (not that I know of, at least) but it seems that company is making foils especially for waterpipes, so yes, that might help.

I would suggest not to open big holes on the foil, the charcoal particles would have a tendency to fall into that holes and mix with tobacco which would eventually ruin your experience.
