Default nakhla in a vortex

ok so i know its not the best bowl to use with nak but it's the only one i know the location of at the moment.
i've only smoked it a few times but haven't gotten it exactly right.
atleast the smoke yield wasn't high at all even for nakhla.
but it tastes pretty good.
can someone give me a quick detailed explanation on packing?
i ran out of coconaras so i have to resort to quick lights should i do 3 smalls?
2 big?
1 big?
with or without a windcover.
i want opinions.
and the QLs aren't aspecific brand just generic.

Man... Don't use Dodo's. What part of WA are you in? I know of most smoke shops in the spokane area, seattle area & tacoma area... We have to find you better coals.

But 2 QLs with a windcover if you must...

i always smoke nahkla out of a vortex... super easy, just pack it to the sides, punch a bunch of holes and light it up with 3 coals... good to go.

yep same here i mostly use my vortex for nakhla. I odnt pack it tight, but under the rim of the bowl. HD foil and i use 3 peices of cocobrico or coconara. i find that the vortex can handle a fair bit of heat (i wouldnt be using 3 on a egyptian). the i use a windcover as the coals get smaller. plenty of smoke and flavour
