Default Nakhla in a Phunnel Bowl

I tried to find a video about this, but didn't come up with anything.

I'm trying to figure out how to smoke Nakhla from a phunnel bowl. So far, I'm only getting about an hour out of the bowl, then the smoke gets really thin. The flavor is still rich though. When I clean out the bowl, there's still clearly more smokable shisha in there. Currently, I'm packing it a little tighter than I would in a standard bowl. Probably about half as tight as I would pack Tangiers. Maybe that's too tight?

Are is there a good video for this floating around somewhere that I missed?

Packing it too tight can be a problem. Having said that, you'll notice in John's video that he put a lot of heat on the bowl. One of the keys to getting big smoke from Nakhla is putting enough heat on it, and Nakhla can generally handle it!

More Power! -grunt-

Nakhla in a phunnel always worked well for me. Not too tight, not too lose, and 4 coconaras

I pack it tight (not as tight as tangiers for me thought) and 3 cocos for a small funnel.

i pack it with a fork.... then i press down on it with the fork itself for the tobacco to be even with the rim or a little under.

add 3 ring arounds with a tootpick and 3 coconaras and you are good to go.

If you start with the foil completely touching the shisha, the foil will "sear" itself to the shisha and prevent burning.

Here's my example using an Egyptian bowl...

i just lightly press it down (away from the foil) then do everything i usually do for every other brand of tobacco... 3 CH QLs... no over-pack, no weirdness, and I get perfectly big clouds without burning...
