Default ashy aftertaste

ok i don't know what it is but everytime i use my bigger hookah(i have 2) i get an ashy aftertaste.
i mean i'd like to think i used both of my hookahs the same amount and i only clean by rinsing it but everytime i smoke out of the bigger one i get that taste and it makes me gag.
i don't ever have that problem with my mini.

just for reference i have a skullz mini hookah and a sheecool 2 hose for the big one. i cleaned it with brushes and stuff before the sessions, and actually ended up snapping the brush but still got it clean and everything then i rinsed the hoses with hot hot water can anyone shed some light on the subject?

i was thinking i just didn't clean it or the hoses enough.
again for reference i have a cobra(unknown brand) and a narbish hose.
the narbish has a much ashier taste for some reason and it's had much less use.

i would like to resolve the issue and welcome suggestions.
should i just wash it soak it or something or should i smoke something super strong in hopes of clearing it.

change to a different coal.

you can probably taste it with the taller pipe because the smoke cools more while the smaller one probably doesn't..

well nevermind then. ccn are some of my favorites.

i'd say just deep clean your hookah, wash out your narbish, and maybe use a different kind of tobacco. use vinegar. or you can use lemon juice, but it does the same thing and is 5x more expensive.

make sure the coals are all grey before placing on the bowl.

Well if not the coals then my only thought is your "cobra(unknown brand)" might be rusted. As for the narbish, Im not sure if you dont try washiing it every time you pack a bowl. Sorry if this dosent help.

yeah i could be better about the whole washing out my gear thing but it's hard in this house, when i move which is relatively soon, i should be able to do a much better job and do it much more often. that's probably the problem is that it's dirty but i don't know. thanks for trying also i will get a better hookah to start fresh when i get my tax return, im thinking a KM.
