under the rim, but the bowl is really shallow. If i pack it under the rim the weight of the coals pushes the foil down, no matter how tight the foil is. If i pack less shisha then thers hardly anything in the bowl

What does the water level in your vase look like?
I've recently been experimenting with water levels and i found that using too little water can produce smaller clouds.
It also makes the smoke a little bit warmer.

I've never even attempted to smoke AF in my Vortex bowl. I have had great luck using a standard Egyptian bowl. I'd also recommend trying two natural coals and a windcover, at least for the first few minutes of the session, just to get things going. Three coals would be overkill for AF when using an Egyptian bowl. If you don't have a regular windcover you can make one out of tin foil or a large energy drink can. Check the how-to video section to see how to make one.

Also make sure your water level is good and that your rig is clean before smoking.

Lightley sprinkel in the tobbaco and pack it just below the rim then pat it down lightley with your fingers put 1 pice of hd foil then poke holes around the foil and place 2 hot cocos on the edge and rotate tge coals every 10 - 15 minz

That's part of the hookah experience, try new things and learn what works.

+1 "Experimentation is key!" I'm thinking of making that my tag line.

It will eventually work just remember keep the coals on the outside move them every 10 -20 minz and then when they start getting smaller and a wind cover and start moving the coals towards the center

Another thought. Is there a leak in your hookah?
If there is a big enough leak then no matter how much heat you add you will not get big clouds and just end up burning your tobacco. Make sure to check your grommets.
