Question Tips For Packing Al Fakher in a Phunnel?

I was wondering if anyone had any tips for packing Al Fakher in a tangiers phunnel. I can get Tangiers and Nakhla to smoke beautifully in it, but Al Fakher is occasionally thin and harsh.

I'm using heavy duty tin foil... one layer good enough, right? Three circles of small holes, none in the middle. Packed loosely under the rim... should I pack it over the rim?

I know the phunnel was not designed for Al Fakher but I know many people have success with it.

I do the same (packed loosely just below the rim) and actually poke a hole through the middle. Smokes very well with all flavors of AF I tried (and I mostly smoke AF at the moment)

I am having the same problems with AF DA but other AF flavors smoke just fine.

several years ago when AF tweaked their producion methods alot of their products had smoking issues.I found those products smoked better w/a lower heat. having said that, ,I hear AF has come back to basics and the newer production dates are easier to handle.

Pack it down tightly and it should smoke fine with 3 coals. I find this makes normally harsh AF tobacco very smooth, but as always YMMV.
