Default mya bowls

I picked up a 22" Mya from my local shop a few weeks ago, and I'm having a bit of trouble heat management wise. I know the obvious solution is to not use a mya bowl, or quicklights, or AF tobacco, but, lets just say those aren't options and try and figure this out.

I use 3 kings/golden coals. usually i break one up into 4 vaguely equal pieces, using usually 3 or all 4. The smoke is almost always too harsh. 3 pieces with a windcover is too harsh, 2 with a windcover produces almost no smoke.

Suggestions?

That's what I did the first time I smoked it. It works really well with thicker tobacco (Romman, Nakhla, etc.) but with Al-Fakher it is way too harsh.

word on the street is AF has become the ultimate heat bitch.

But make sure you arent overpacking the bowl, as wonderland pointed out, and make sure you have plenty of holes poked in the foil.

I would have to say that i also have to second the splitting it in half motion. Then keep the coal towards the edge of the bowl and rotate the chunks around the edge every ten minutes or so.

I get good smoke when I use 3k. I just light 1 and blow on it for a few seconds till its red hot. Try just to keep it in 1 piece or break up 2 coals into 4 halves.

I really think it's just the batch I bought, because I picked up some AF watermelon today (and natural coals, hooray me!) and I am having no problems with it at all. I'll have a review up tomorrow of Vanilla and Peach if I can get them smoking properly, and will probably have my AF watermelon review up tonight, along with one for my hookah and coals.
