Default Km not smoking right...

I have a Khalil Mamoon 3 hose with a vortex bowl and i can't get it to smoke right. I use CH Qls and Al fakher tobacco. I've tried using 2 coals and 3 coals and i can't seem to get good clouds. I'm not sure if its my hole pattern or my heat management or what? Any ideas?

Check your bowl to see if it is tightly sealed to the grommet,and while your at it check your other grommets.I have one bowl that likes to creep up when it warms, so I double up on the bowl grommet.

Check for leaks .. (I suspect the purge valve may be missing the ball bearing)

For a hole pattern .. I use the Vortex and my pattern is just a spiral from the outside inward. Then I fill in the gaps with other random holes. Use 2 coals if you have a windcover and add a coal after about 20-30 minutes, if you don't have a windcover use 3 coals. The CH QLs build up a lot of ash so that could be minimizing your heat without using a windcover. You could also make a windcover or get creative with a giant Rockstar can or coffee can!? I don't know if you are smoking inside or outside .. outside you will notice less smoke if there is a slight wind.

Hope that helps ..
