Default nakhla mandarin smoke issues

I am having an issue with getting this flavor to smoke right. I pack all my nakhla tobacco in a phunnel with 3 CH coals and I have even tried with an egyptian bowl. It seems that no matter what I try I get VERY weak smoke. All my other nakhla flavors smoke perfect but I don't know why mandarin is giving me such issues. I have tried more heat but that just makes the tobacco taste awful and I don't get anymore smoke anyway. Anyone else have this problem with this specific flavor/how do you guys pack this stuff?

I've never had an issue w/the mandarin. Maybe try a standard bowl. Nakhla will smoke from a phunnel but its not really a must do.I would normally suggest bumpin' up the heat but 3 CH coals is more than enough heat. Good luck!

Every brand and flavor I smoke, is smoked exactly the same. 1/4 stick of Exotica, 1 layer of HD or HS Reynolds foil, bowl packed fluffy to just under the rim, quite a few toothpick sized holes and a wind cover. Plenty of taste and good clouds everytime.

don't use a phunnel bowl, mandarin isn't juicy enough.
a standard clay works great for nakhla mandarin.

I suggest the standard Egyptian as well. I use two CH coals and all tobacco smokes beautifully.

mix it up if there are sticky clumps at the bottom, and add some vegetable glycerine, i had the same problem with nakhla sweet melon but the veg glycerine did the job.

make sure everything is sealed tightly, the bowl on the grommet. your hose grommet. make sure you have no air leaks. could be something as simple as that.

mandrin was kinda of weird, a touch lighter on the smoke and had a strong tickle, not as strong as tangiers but in the same type

try mixing it up better is the only thing i can really suggest
