Default Super packing

Well, many hookah bars do this, but i want to pack my nakhla like thunder and john do by scooping it up in the bowl. I have way too much Nakhla pistachio and i need to smoke it up quick. I have a question though. Does the shisha go over the rim of the bowl? like, if i held it and looked at it from the side, would i see shisha over the rim? im trying this as soon as someone responds as its 11:15 and i have school so i need to sleep soon.

edit: thunder said it worked well with Nakhla, so dont say "thats only tangiers"

thunder told me to pack tightly over the rim of the bowl, then "push" it down with the foil, then poke holes all the way through the foil & shisha, till it hits the bottom of the bowl all the way around. i'd think you would need a lot of holes.

i'm going to try this either tomorrow or thursday.

yes it goes maybe 1/8th of an inch above the edge of the bowl, when you put the foil down it will have a slight bubble look to it. make sure to put holes all the way to the bottom, when you put the coals on you will hear a sizzle, dont worry about it tho, give it a min and then start smoking. i usually start off with 4 and then take one off, it works great. dont know why but it does. great smoke and flavor with my Nakhla.

thanks, this helps alot. Im smoking the one i tried right now and its packed to the rim, but not pushed down. Also i poked the holes before and i didnt og through the shisha, so far theres no burning, but the smoke is nil too.....not quite sure why, maybe because it needs to heat up more...idk

i tried something similar a day or so ago, but the tobacco touched foil and burnt it. The entire smoke was a little harsh. will not try the foil touching thing again, but the thightly packed thing is good. i will have to remake the video i did for it, since my mic was all wonky and didnt record.

I've had it packed way over at a hookah bar before - i mean this was at least an inch mound over the rim, like an ice cream scoop. smoked fine, and we couldnt finish it, but heat management was a bitch - that coal had to be moved every few minutes

This is the method I used with Tangiers phunnel bowl. I pack the tobacco just a little bit over the rim and it is like 10 times better than the regular Egyptian bowl. I m currently smoking Nakhla DA using 3 CH Natural coals and there is no harshness at all.

Note: it may get a little harsh for the first 5 minutes which is OK with me.

I actually did a not super but big head of Coconut Nakhla like 2 hours ago and it worked out very nicely. No joke I had epic smoke like so thick I couldn't even blow O's cause it was so thick haha

But I did it off of my egyptian bowl and I'm waiting to do it on my Tangiers phunnel when it comes in tomorrow. I'm typing a paper now (actually 2) and I so wish I could smoke in the house but mom would not be happy at all... I wish senior year can be over already. I'll be smoking in my apartment all the time while doing papers and stuff =] Also my girlfriend will be joining me ^.^ rawr

What hoil pattern should be used ?
The "3 Rings" one ?

Trying this atm, made the 3 ring pattern. Works great, i pushed the foil down until the tobacco was enuff packed to be smoked without touching the foil.
Dunno if this was the point of this method u guys doin. Advise please.

exactly the method i have been using for the past few days with nakhla, all flavors, seems to work great. of course the top layer will stick to the foil, but no adverse effect on taste as far as i can tell.

Damnit.........i did it wrong again...i am using a vortex, but it just burns the shit out of it.....Whatever, i just took off the top layer of shisha that was burnt, then left it 1/8th under the rim. Its perfect now, kinda, i wish there was more smoke....gah, sometimes Nakhla is mean

make sure to leave a gap between the shisha and the holes on your vortex
maybe that'll help

Got a 250 of nakhla sweet melon and packed it loosely to the top of the spire in the middle of a vortex and it was the best smoke ive had yet, i used two coco naras and a wind cover that i took off once the bowl was heated up, and put back on when the coals were dying, it worked soo well, the flavor was perfect, no harshness, big smoke.

And then i tried the exact same thing the next day and it was garbage Ive since smoked a few other shishas to try and clear the palette, cleaned everything out then gave it a go again and still nothin like the first time. I think its either the flavor acclimated and went bad or idk, the only think i can think of doing now is buying vegetable glycerin to mix in the nakhla?? Im so pissed i want it to be like that first session so bad

Ive tried packing it tighter, different hole patterns, and an egyptian bowl as well, still not working...
