I like packing the tobacco down with my fingers to make sure I have enuff tobacco in the bowl....(before foiling)
Pack as much tobacco as possible as tight as possible and then Foil...
I always use 2 layers with coconara

Now with the tobacco packed this tight you'll need to use my "air tunnel"
method for the holes along with some regular holes...the mya poker works best for this.

first poke up threw the bottom of the bowl to line up the holes...
then go back from the top and for lack of a better term reem out large see threw hole that line up with the holes in the bowl...
Add a few more holes around the "air tunnels" Be sure to poke them all the way too the bottom of the bowl..
Make sure to reem the "air tunnel's" a few times so that you can see threw them after poking the other regular holes...

Now the biggest problem with one coal bowls is providing enuff heat...
Soo the trick is to use a tall "foil crown" on the bowl...
Also use 1 coconara broke in half

Put the two coconara halves on the bowl...
You can pinch the top of the "foil crown" or open it up to adjust the heat.

I could of takin some "bigger cloud" pictures,But correct smoking is all about flavor and alowing thick smoke to roll slowly out of your mouth to enjoy all the flavor...

Now of coarse you'll get bigger and more flavorfull smoke from a larger bowl using more tobacco...But you'll find this very much a pleasing smoke with plenty of flavor and clouds...For shorter sessions its amazing...
And will save on coals and tobacco

Very nice guide, really thorough and clear, looks like a man who knows how to enjoy his nakhla

Out of curiosity, what nakhla was that? Looks pretty tasty in the second pick, and good some smoking pics!

That was a bowl of nakhla vanillia...At first I was not fond of it,but now its starting to grow on me...It seems vanillia is one of the few nakhla flavors that gets better with a little acclimation...With out acclimation it kinda leaves a weird creamy taste in your mouth...That seems to go away alot if you let acclimate a few hours before smoking.

I tried a small over pack method with Nak. and it was terrible. This didnt work for me at all. The heat was impossible to get right. Two coals, heat ocver made nice clouds, but it got really harsh. Without the wind cover two coals made nice flavor and no clouds. So i smoked it like this for about 20 min, and then scrapped the whole hookah idea for the night cause it ruined the session.

I will have to try this again with the foil crown and the same amount of foil sheets and hole pattern.

Probly to many coals...One coal broke in half with double foil and a foil crown instead of a traditional windcover

I always pack my bowls tight. I press down on it with the fat of my palm until it's just under the rim. If i'm not getting any airflow, i take my needle and poke little holes in the tobacco. I like my bowls like i do women...(I think you get my point?).

Definitely going to try that. That small bowl is the only one I have problems controlling the heat on.

Great pictorial TAP, thank you!

Okay, I stuffed about 20gr into my small egyptian. Reamed the holes through like you show and poked a few smaller holes. Mounted it up on my new Mya Petite, (see video review). Made a tall "foil crown". Cut 1 CH nat in half...

Absolutely perfect. Full flavor through 2 coals...just perfect.

On another note I also can't seem to get the heat right with this method.

Just out of curiousity, is there that much of a flavor difference when doing this?
