Default Heat management

All i've been smoking is starbuzz and now I put in a order and i'm getting some starbuzz and al fakher. I was just wondering how much of a difference it will be to properly manage the heat for al fakher, I know starbuzz can take a good amount of heat but i'm not sure about al fakher.

I am going to be using a vortex bowl and coconaras hopefully I don't burn most of it.

Al Fakher doesn't require that much heat management. It's just as easy as starbuzz. Just leave 3-4 coals in triangle/square formation and flip/ash them when needed. Also rotate if using 3 coals.

I use two coconut coals and a windcover (off and on) for a vortex bowl .. this is my preferred setup at the moment ..

for AF i just use 1 layer of regular foil and 2 coconaras on small phunnel. I pop on the windcover to get it going then take it off.

for AF with a heavy duty or 2 layers, I would just throw on 3 naras.

i'm not a fan of vortex because it wastes a little more shisha and I don't have time for 2 hour sessions
