Default First nakhla

So I was finally able to get some nakhla and I'm excited. I picked up 250g of double apple and it smells fantastic. I just wanted to ask those who have smoked nakhla before which packing method worked best for you? Just the normal pack or the tangiers pack ********** tried out. Feel free to chime in and whatnot.

i say do it like ********** but that's just me. but seriously I really enjoy doing that with nakhla but a fellow hp member chime in, i think it was kalutika with the most basic packing method and got just as much smoke as me so what do I know?

my theory is dont trying any special method on a tobacco or bowl you have not sued before. stick with the standard methods before you try special ones. i pack have started to pack my tobacco in general a bit lower than is recommended and some times a touch firmer and it works great for me.

i just packed up a phunel of chocomint, packed it pretty firm but below the rim some, i didnt poke holes all the way down and im getting good smoke already, and pretty good flavor (seeing if i can go 2 rounds of coals on this

Thnx for all the input guys. One thing that I keep thinking about is that my only other bowl besides my funnel is the mya bowls that came with my bambino so it's pretty damn tiny. But I'll use this thread as the deciding factor. Whichever method gets more votes wins.

i only really got 1.5 rounds of coals out of tangiers packed kinda tight in a small phunnel, flavor started to die and the tobacco was pretty well cooked

as to the mya bowls, i find them to be hit and miss, some times they smoke great and you can get a really long session out of them because of their depth other times they dont smoke well. maybe its me but ive packed them the same and had differences, idk

So I've decided to use my regular mya bowl. My question now is that how many coals should I use? Keep in mind that I got one of the tiny mya bowls that came with my bambino and I plan on using cocos. How many pieces should I use? I do have a wind cover so yea. Thnx for all the help.

2 usually works well on those just make sure to leave a gap so that it gets heat penetrating with out burning the top

Nakhla DA is one of the most reziliant products on the market. Even if you should burn it you can simply remove some heat and it will quickly fall back in line.
And congratulations on the smashing of your Nakhla hymen!

So I just finished my first session using my mya bowl and it was pretty good. I was surprised a couple of times when I got some huge clouds. I was using one coco with a windcover everynow and then. Looking forward to trying **********s method tomorrow. Btw do people pick stems out when using the tangiers method?

I use a large Egyptian bowl with nakhla that has been loosened up and unpacked. After that I just use normal foil (not HD unless I have it) and a couple CH coals. A wind cover at first to heat the bowl and then on and off as I see fit. the coals start on their small sides and move to their largest sides as the bowl reaches optimal temperature.

The tobacco is nto packed tight in the Egyptian but is about a medium pack. Not fluffed but not tight. To allow for airflow.

Don't ever pick out stems. you just loose mass that smokes fine and you waste time along with tobacco you paid for. sometimes if you find one big enough to start a log cabin you can pull it and cut it up or just ditch it if that's too much effort. Still less effort than picking out all the stems.

So with the tangiers packing method I saw that there was way more smoke. The flavor was still really good. There were times in which it tasted off for a min but nuthn purging won't fix. I would recommend that method more now. Looks like nakhla found another loyal member. Can't wait to try some chocomint or mandarin.

on the bottom (and on the top at first while they are still big) is normal. if they are not giving you weird taste or head aches its the normal blackening, if its giving you taste you need to leave them on the stove longer, i put mine on until all of the sides are ashed over then flip them, johns cocos light faster than coconaras but same practice just different time amounts

and yes chocomint is that good
