Default Stirring shisha?

I don't do it, but someone mentioned it to me.

Uncover the bowl mid session to stir up the shisha.

Who does it? Tips to doing it without burning your fingers off?

Thanks

Yeah I never heard of this. Maybe they meant when you burn it quickly to take off the foil pick out the burned peices and then mix up whatever is not burned? idk.

A friend at work says he flips the whole pile over after about 1/2 an hour into a session. Haven't tried it myself.

Good question. I suspect he uses a screen instead of foil for one thing. I'll ask him tomorrow and report back!

tell him that he is supposed to stir the tobacco up before he puts it in the bowl! good heat management means you bake the stuff from all sides, not just the top sir.

I only do it in extreme cases. If I happen to burn my shisha, I make a last ditch effort to save it by stirring it. I use the tongs to take off the foil, and stir it using either a toothpick or that metal rod that comes on most tongs. After you get the foil off, it tends to cool down quickly. It's still too hot to really handle, but it's better than right when you take the coals off.
