Default Foil Setup

Isnt this a little excessive in the foil department? Does anyone else use this much foil in one session?

Interesting, does seem like a lot of foil. Not sure if it makes that much of a difference.

ive seen that but it seems like a way to over come horrible heat management skills or to just be as lazy as you can be.

im more surprised that he lit a natural with a pocket torch and only lit one side of it, retarded

Same here. 2 layers of double foil with a spacer seems a bit much though...

I've never tried that style of foiling but I will when I get my cast off and when I move. Prolly won't use the 2 layers of doubles though. Maybe one?

the heat gets through fine, it is an easy way to get a bowl smoking well from what ive seen but if you just pack the bowl right and move the coals there is no issue. some people swear by this method but it just seems like more work than it is worth

neat idea but that is a lot of foil, when i first started I used a huge piece of foil and wraped it around the bowl and it looked messy and really didn't work. I've learned from my mistakes.

When I started I used cheap thin foil, single layer, and I got good at heat management. Now with HD Reynolds it's effortless.

All I got from that video was that guy REALLY needs to get a portable electric burner for the charcoal!

Oh and sure yeah... WAY too much foil!

from what I've heard that technique is good for not burning you shisha, and since i'm prone to doing so I'm gonna give this a shot.

Good god. That's too much work for my lazy butt. I'm sticking with some HD Reynolds wrap. heat management and good coals always do the trick.
