More info is needed. What bowl, how u pack it? What coals?

Pack it so the shisha wont touch the foil, place the coals on the outer rims of the bowl.
Also, try maybe poking smaller holes, when i poke pin size holes, it tends to get harsh. What r u using?
Hope it helps..

I'm using Akhla charcoal (quicklite), i pulled the tobacco apart pretty well, it isn't touching the foil. I would love a video on this(to anyone that makes videos and is reading this).

How fast are you smoking it? If you smoke it fast the coals will heat faster and the tobacco will burn. Try taking a puff every 30 seconds or so and see if that makes a difference.

If you're using one of the big 40mm Akhla QL's then that's probably the cause of it. Try breaking it in half and also as stated there are tons of videos on how to pack a bowl and even on heat management.

That could very well be my problem. I tend to smoke quite quickly even alone.

I had no problem with AF Orange, Maybe mix it with some nakhla mizo to make it more heat resistant?

Don't use a screen, use foil. I double layer my foil and poke alot of little holes with a toothpick, DO NOT OVER OR UNDERPACK!
