some tobaccos supposedly like to touch the foil (tangeris and nakhla, and in general unwashed brands) but i never do it. at lounges i also have noticed the bowls last for ever for what ever reason.

i would bet it has something to do with the QL as to not burning it to much since the Qls have the gap in the bottom.

i am more intrigued with the way he foiled it, made a quasi wind cover/blocker

Where did you read nakhla is supposed to touch the foil? or tangiers for that matter?

as long as the coal is touching the foil, then it is heating the foil. if the foil is touching the tobacco, then its like the coal is burning the tobacco.

Most of the reason lounges do that is so they don't have to worry as much about heat management. If they overpack the bowl and it starts to burn, you'll taste less of the burn because so much tobacco is in there still being smoked. As opposed to packing it normally and letting it all burn, where you're screwed.

it goes to show that there is no one way to make it work, i always change my packing methods and most of the time they work the same. there are a few things that i will not do anymore like poke really thick holes in the foil, but i still see people do that and it works

hrmm i must be different than other lounges. I pack the bowl "fluffy" if it is a mya bowl and I pack a more dense bowl if it is tangiers but in no way do i ever let it touch the foil...I know some say certain brands can touch the foil and all that but I pack the bowls at the lounge as I would at home and smoke it myself. I may be different than some but I let the customers be the judge.

i have heard it from a lot of people around, mostly with tangiers (IIRC even eric says that) and some have been letting nakhla touch. again i dont, i always leave a gap no matter the brand or bowl, some i leave a small gap (like tangiers and nakhla) others a leave a lager gap (like starbuzz). i usually pack it pretty fluffy unless it tangiers but even then i dont pack it really hard. i found with starbuzz if you pack it a little more dense it smokes better (at least for me in a mod bowl) but it still gets a good gap

LOL .. Ahmad

OK, after reading this topic, I packed my bowl with Nakhla DA and I overpacked it. So, it is slightly above the edge of the bowl. I used my Egyptian bowl with 2 CH Naturals. I have been smoking for 15 minutes and it is great. Here is the trick:

After you put the coals, get a toothpick and insert it in one of the holes that are close to the bowl's edge, then slightly try to raise the foil just a little bit. You will have an easiers pull and the coals won't touch the tobacco.

from what i've heard, overpacking burns the top layer and insulates everything under it so it's supposedly better. i always overpack tangiers and press the foil down to cram it all down before stretching it out over a phunnel, works great every time

i've always said this: the lounge owners that do the overpacking thing.... they're middle eastern medicine men and they put their VOODOO magic to make it smoke nice and long. That's why traditional middle eastern music is on in those lounges... it's the catalyst for their magic!

.. nakhla i cant say, never had the pleasure to try yet, but from my experiences with Tangiers, i packed it like John showed in his video and it really does work when you just scoop it in and it kinda over packed, where the foil is kinda bubbled. it really does work for regular tangiers i know you dont need to do that for the lucid brand but for the regular line it smokes great.
