Question How should I pack my bowl?

I have a small, cheap hookah with a standard Egyptian bowl.

Hookah: http://i24.ebayimg.com/07/i/001/25/96/4854_2.JPG

How should I pack the bowl, poke the holes, put the coal(s), etc. to produce the best clouds, flavor, and heat (obviously). The bowl is a little bit small so I'm not sure if I can fit more than 1 coal. If I can, then I will, but if not are there any methods to get maximum heat?

Thanks for the help,

Pedro

max heat? = windcover
as for packing, search youtube for dmcwebd or sambooka etc.. thhey all have good vids on packing it right. If it burns ur throat, too much heat, remove the windcover and don't be scared to put holes in the foil, not too large, a needle will be fine

if it's cheap then it might not be that air tight so try putting tape on the bowl and where it connects to seal it making the smoke only come out the hose the same with where the bowl and pipe connect and the same with where the hose connects with the pipe

turn the bowl over, fill the entire inside with shisha, add water, cover the entire bowl in tinfoil and saran wrap, poke it through the downstem of the hookah, fill vase all the way to the top with water and shove the bowl and stem inside, attach the hose to the top of the stem and place coals inside the small port above the vase. blow slowly into the hose and adjust the purge valve as needed for smoke density

A simple "use the search function" would have been fine but that works too.

I've done this. Works pretty well. I like the hint of flavor the saran wrap adds to the mix.

I find the taste of saran wrap more plasticky than the generic....
Go with generic plastic wrap to get more flavor out of your tobacco

but in all seriousness, go to videos then how to... you'll see a bunch of vids.
