Default 1 QL - Not Enough Smoke........ 2 - Burnt.........

I tried using 30mm QL's and 40mm QL's same result.
What the hell am I doing wrong?!
Had the same result with Nakhla and HH
1 30mm worked with Fantasia though =\

try keeping a little space between the foil and shisha. at the brim seems like the coals are touching the shish thus the burning taste you get. And use a wind cover if you got one.

Okay. Note taken.
Also, I will never touch Golden QL's ever again because the only place they belong is the garbage

Try to use one coal on the rim of the bowl and a windcover. Or the other thing is, to break the coals in halves and use 2-3 of them on the edge of the bowl. The windcover is a great thing, can help you a lot. If there's not enough heat you just throw it on, if there's too much heat you just take it off. Play with it a little bit, practicing is the key

The other thing can be, that you put too much tobacco in the bowl. Leve a gap between the foil and the top of the tobacco. If you use normal foil and not Heavy Duty, than i would say try to use two layers of it.

Yeah, QL's are not the best choice. Most of them give you a bad taste. Try to use some natural coals. Check out the review section of the forum, there you can find many different types of charcoals that you can try

^hmm that might affect the temp of the smoke you are inhaling but I dont think it would affect the temp that the tobacco is being heated or the effectiveness of that heat.

but its just hotter smoke for your lungs, the water cools the smoke for you.

less water doesnt burn the tobacco at a higher temp it just may not cool the smoke for you as much.

The original poster said he was burning the tobacco so its probably at the bowl side.
