i sound like a n00b right now, but is it really better to pack tightly in a phunnel or a vortex?

If thats the case, I'm guessing this will not work in a regular bowl. We'll see!
well if you look at john's video it doesn't seem like hes packing it super tight
but your probably right =/

How is it that the tobacco just doesn't burn right away, it seems like when I* had overpacked in the past, it would burn immediately.
people swear by this over packing for tangiers (fill to the rim, push down with foil) but i honestly just pack it kind of tight and leave a gap (poking holes to the bottom) and it smokes very well, saves tobacco and doesnt burn

as to a regular bowl, you can pack it harder but you will get a harder pull, you can do what some people do with tangiers in standard bowls, pack it hard with a hole down the center to allow air flow.

over all i find that packing a bit harder (right before you get resistance to just a bit of it) will give stronger flavor and thicker smoke plus last longer on some tobaccos (figured it out with starbuzz)

Hey I know you guys pack it so the foil is touching but do you rotate the 4 CH coals? Or just leave them in the same place for the whole session. My Tangiers phunnel is coming in next week and my order of Nakhla came in already so ima be testing out this method =]

Tried this method in my regular bowl, it worked well for a bit, then went south really quickly, I will try it again just for data, but so far no-go

I started packing Nakhla tight in my phunnel about 2 weeks ago and have had famous results. While I use a similar method packing tangiers, fork it in past the rim making sure to fill in gaps then pressing it down, I pack it a bit looser with the Nak, essentially not filling up nearly as high before compressing, more like to JUST past the rim. I also use slightly smaller holes than when I smoke Tangiers.

Only way I'll smoke my Nak from now on, last night I opened up the kilo of DA I bought and was sooo damn happy with the results

Funny that the loose packing method is being challenged since that's how I learned to smoke. Personally I'm getting better results with tighter packing.

I agree, now I enjoy smooking Nakhla much more the before.

Just making sure, will this technique work with a vortex bowl as well? As I still have half a kilo left of Nakhla DA and it used to be my favorite flavor when smoking in the cafes of Lebanon and Jordan, but i havent been able to get it to smoke perfectly

I just got my 3rd Vortex bowl in, 1st one came with the hookah, it broke, and when the 2nd one came in, someone broke it the same day i got it. Hopefully i can use this one for a while. I'll just pack it tightly, so the shisha is supposed to touch the foil or do i just pack it tightly and leave a little gap so it doesnt?

were you using 4 coals before too? because to me it seems like you just added more heat. try doing the 3 rings and sprinkling it in then using 4 to see if it makes a diff

I have tried Nakhla DA tightly packed in a vortex bowl, and it works just as well, i recommend not letting too much of the shisha get burnt unto the foil, as it will give a metal burning ashy taste, just like my most recent bowl at 3am before i go to sleep, the one before though, while it was packed but alitte to no touching on the foil was about perfect, almost AF sized clouds with great flavor and taste, and it doesnt take me as long to pack the bowl as i just have to tear it off bit by bit and put it in the bowl. So i'll just to it tightly packed from now on with trying not to let it hit the foil because i came back from a quesy sort of buzz as found out most of the top layer stuck to the foil.

tear it off? are you just ripping it off the solid brick? if so you need to put it in a bag and mix it up, it will smoke better

Yeah, i know, but that wasnt the problem, living in a dorm and without a car at the moment i dont have to many places to keep the shisha in excpet the packages they came with, i catch a ride to wal-art every 3 weeks or so, so i think i may buy a pack of ziplocks, the method works though.

i take the brick out, put it in a zip lock sandwich bag, kneed it up all good and push the air out, put that in another zip lock and put it back in the box, im starting to put another ziplock over all that cause some of the smells are strong and i dont want it mixing

Dont think i'll go that far, mixing it up and putting them in one ziplock back will be fine enough for me.

Another good thing about this method is that i really dont have to worry about taking every little stem out.

ya i just did it because i was getting smell through the bags and with 20 flavors in my drawer i dont want to have my flavors marry.

as to the stems, i never pick out stems ever, its all tobacco, it will all smoke, heat management will matter more than if you have stems or not
