overpack method fo' lyfe. It takes a little bit to get heat managment down. But its so fantastic. Really nice if you just wanna chill with some awesome nahkla.

In my opinion the difference in flavor is huge. Of course, it comes down to personal preference and individual taste. Give it a try and see what you think. If it fails for you, you're only out a few grams of tobacco.

Absolutely perfect. Full flavor through 2 coals...just perfect.
Nice I'll go find that video.......

Yes the flavor is much more intense when packed this way as opposed to a sprinkle method, also it takes heat alot better withot burning once you get it right

I love this guide and I'm going to have to try it with my Nak mizo watermelon.


What are your recommendations for doing this with 3-kings ql's?

I'd say 2 3kings if it starts to get to hot place one on top the the other and place in the center....might try one on top the other dead center with a windcover right off the bat also...

All I tried was http://www.hookahpro.com/forum/video...s&videoid=2042 with Nakhla DA. Couldn't really get it to work properly. Either way too much heat (thick clouds, bad taste) or too little (very bad clouds, nearly no taste). No I have to check out your dense overpacking method, perhaps that will work better. Dee's method is very loosely packed compared to yours. I think Dee's will work better with wet shisha, as you said.

I can confirm that my method works with Nakhla and also Tangiers. The Tangiers makes a hell of a mess of the stem though. Whatever tobacco you use (or packing method for that matter), you need to play around with the heat management.

I would think the more tobacco you stuff in there, the better it will take the heat!

Nice video, Dee. Gonna try this tonight with some DA and a regular size Egyptian bowl. I love DA, and I look forward to a more intense flavor experience.

Thanks for the pics and the details, 2apples. I have been just "fishing" the poker through the top of the foil till I find the holes in the bowl and then, as you said, reaming them out larger than the rest of the holes that I've made but I'm going to try your "bottom up" procedure and see if it makes a difference. I used the overpack with DM sweet melon last night and it was amazing. Thanks again. Smoke happy.

i did this with margarita last night. it was good! but very hard to pull =/
i didn't have any HD foil, so i used 3 layers of regular, other than that, i did everything the same. i think i need to clean my bowl really well though... i think i have too much charred on goop around/in the holes that my "through holes" didn't quite provide as much air flow as i had hoped for. yup, think i'm gonna boil my small bowl right now and see if i can't get it clean

Hi everyone!
I just tried this method with my 7cm egyptian bowl. I used Nakhla Orange. The flavor wasnt different but the smoke was thicker. It is good method with small bowl but with my it is not good, i get very strong smoke and i couldnt smoke that . The good things is that it isnt harshy when u will "cook" the tobacco first...
I had one quick light coal cutted to two without wind cover and even if i let there only one half of the coal it was super strong.
