Default Ive tried everything so my Nakhla sweetmelon dosn't get harsh Help!!!

nakhla is a great brand of tabbaco and also tastes good but it gets harsh for the 1st 10 mins then after the exotica coals get small it smokes smooth but then most of the flavor and smoke is little. i poke a bunch of pin sized holes in it do you think thats the problem? also my nakhla dosent burn because i set it up right and it dosnt touch the foil either. i use 3pcs of exoticas about a 1/2 inch to 1inch long. i smoked mandarin 2 days ago and poked bigger holes with a tooth pick not pinsized like i did with sweetmelon and it smoked smoother then starbuzz i was mazed do you think thats the problem?

Thanks.

maybe your batch of sweet melon is dry? try adding honey or something to moisten it up.

honey seems like the best solution...you can use glycerin, but honey is easier and usually works well. if that doesnt help, give us some more details on your method/setup

nakhla is more heat sensitive. try taking off one of the coals and smoke for 5 mins. if you want more smoke try using a windcover. if that doesn't help then take off the windcover, and put all 3 coals on the outside rim of the bowl. (like a triangle/pyramid formation)

the check list:

is the tobacco touching the foil? pack less.
start with less heat. maybe 2 pieces.

i have never burned nakhla... i think it is very easy to manage the heat.
I pack a regular mya bowl throw a screen with two 1" pieces of exotica and smoke... i dont hardly touch the coals.
