I'm assuming this is OG/Noir we're talking about...

If you're not getting much smoke and it's harsh, you are underpacking the bowl and/or don't have enough holes poked in the foil.

If you are getting good smoke and it's harsh, you have too much heat on there. Keep in mind there is a difference between harsh smoke and throat tickle, the latter being more of an after effect. Throat tickle will go away once the bowl is properly warmed/heated.

Here's a more recent video that John made with Eric. There is also a part 2 and 3.

The easiest way I can describe it is to pack it in tight and full until it is about level with or slightly higher than the top of the center hole of a Tangiers phunnel. By tight I mean the tobacco doesn't compress anymore without sponging back up. It's about right when you're squeezing juices out when you try to pack it tighter. The foil test in the above video accomplishes the same thing so it's not really necessary once you get a feel for packing it right.

This is pretty much the definitive video on how to do it. Some people pack it differently and still get great results, which is great, but this video helps those who are just starting out. The only thing that I can add is to try to remember when you first opened a package of Tangiers up. The density of the tobacco that you've packed in your bowl should match the density of the tobacco in its original packaging.

If you smoke outside, acclimate outsite and vice versa. Acclimating where I'll actually be smoking has brought my hit ratio on noir way up.

That is way too long. Temperatures, etc change throughout the day and if the air is not circulated in your garage, things get more complex. Take what you have inside and then let it sit one hour before you smoke.
