Default How to get shisha to NOT stick to foil??

Well every time I am done smoking a bowl, there always seems to be shisha stuck to the foil. When I put the shisha in the bowl, it's never overflowing. There is no shisha that goes over the bowl when I put it at eye level, but it still seems to stick to it.

Any ideas?

Thanks

The tobacco expands when it's heated and sticking to the foil can happen. If your smoke is not effected I wouldn't worry about it.

if the tobacco is under the rim, them make sure the foil is tight enough so when you put the coals the foil dosent lower and touch the tobacco.

As long as it doesn't affect the shisha, I wouldn't worry about it. I get a piece stuck to the foil ever so often that gets burnt, but it usually doesn't affecting anything.

It happens to me, but I notice no difference in the quality of my smoke. But it depends on how much is sticking some isnt bad, but if you remove foil and pick up half of the shisha. Then obviously you are overpacking it.

Just make sure your foil isn't sagging and contacting the shisha, and pack the bowl a little below the rim.

I find blowing up thru the bowl after its ready to go not only pushes the foil away from the shisha but creates nice air flow for the session

lol, that's why you cook with them right?
But I'm sure it would taste horrible. Double apple + butter flavor =/= tasty.

Pack below the rim. Lighty pack the tobacco down, and make sure that the foil it really tight so when you put the coals on it doesnt sag.

pack below rim
when packed put your hand over and make sure you dont touch the shisha
put foil over bowl tight like a drum
maybe put two layers so when coals on it wont sag and touch shisha

Foil is metal and metal expands when you heat it, so you can pull the foil over the bowl as tight as you can but there will be some sagging. Just pack the bowl with less shisha and u should be hundreds.
