Default How to smoke Nakhla Zaghloul light?

Tried to smoke this the other day and it will not smoke at all. The batch I've got is pretty moist and seems fresh. Anyone got any idea?

I would asume (never having had it) that you should smoke the same way that I prefer to smoke regular Zaghloul. If it's relatively moist break it up and lightly fill the bowl using the "fluff method". I'd suggest a super chief, funnel with mod or vortex bowl if you can't get a purpose made black moassel bowl. Next, get 4 pieces of a good quality natural coal and wait a good minute after they are fully lighted before putting them on the foil. Next, let it sit for a couple of minutes before drawing.

If it still doesn't smoke well for you i'd add a few more holes to the foil or try adding 5ml worth of glycerin. Note that this sort of stuff won't make a lot smoke compared to the washed fruity stuff that is swimming in glycerin and corn syrup.

If it's dried out just use my standard black moassel set up.

when I say it doesn't smoke I don't mean in compatison to sb or af I mean it literally won't smoke. It could be that I only used 2 CH qls.
Is a black moassel bowl a clay bowl with just one hole?
Is it better to use no foil?

Had that exact problem last week with a sample of it.

Normally, i put 3 ch coals on & I can start puffin' away.

With this, I was using my egyptian bowl (not my phunnel/vortex) & I put 2 coals on... I waited for about 15 minutes, only getting the tiniest clouds. I flipped the coals & about 25 mins into the session started FINALLY getting clouds... Moved the coals around so one was on the edge & one was turned on its side on the edge (so like 1 1/2) & it started producing normal dry nakhla type clouds

Well if you are getting no smoke be sure to fully break up the moassel, pack as loosely as possible and use 4 pieces of a good natural coal. QL make everything taste worse. Some people like to put the coals right onto the moassel but i've found it makes it harsh and nasty tasting. Go with foil using 4 hole columns of small pin holes placed every 7mm or so. Let the coals sit a couple of minutes before drawing. If you still aren't getting enough smoke mix in 5ml of glycerin into 20g of moassel.

I black moassel bowl is something you can't really get out side of the Middle East or India and the designs very a lot depending upon where you go. Personally I prefer super chief or vortex for black moassel although a funnel with a mod works well.
