Angry Anally specific methods for smoking AF

So, I've never gotten Al Fakher to smoke as well as I'd like it.. I don't know if people in videos are used to harsh smoke, throat tickles or what... But I'm not.. I was thoroughly searching the forum for methods.. I'm currently trying one method I found... Here's the setup, 36'' green pear KM, tangiers phunnel, medium pack (not fluffy, not super dense), paperclip mod (not scali), 4 Cocos to get heated, removed one after thirty minutes.. I followed the method I found to the letter, and the throat tickle is gone, but the smoke is EXTREMELY DENSE.. Making it hard to take deep drags... So, it's trial and error time.. So, anyone out there have AF secrets to get it to smoke flawlessly?!?!?

None that are anally specific.....

I smoked AF rose out of my mod bowl, one three kings ql, no problem. I might have just been too inexperienced to notice it sucking though!

Yeah I don't know what the deal is... Before I got into larger hookahs, I had a small chinese and it smoked great because it produced such little smoke... So the smoke was never detectably harsh or tickly... Which is why I thought it would be a good idea to buy three kilos of it... So now on my KM's which produce much more smoke, it is VERY DETECTABLE. And incidentally detestable lol...

Just finished some Al Fakher. I could of sworn the feeling I was getting was a too hot of a shisha but considering it's excess molasses, I couldn't believe that was the reason.. It's good to see others were getting the same deal with it. I don't know what it is!

Yeah, I know what I'm doing when it comes to smoking... But this one's got me baffled... I finally threw up my hands and was gonna give up... But then I decided to really search the forums.. So I've got a list of techniques.. None of which have worked for me.. But who knows, they're probably cig smokers and are used to the harder throat hit..

put a mod in there then just break it up with a fork and drop in around the mod. after that level it out with a fork and coil it. use 2 coals and a cover to start it up then remove the cover

Thanks, done that.. Scali mod, medium pack.. Tried fluffy packing. Without scali mod.. Two to three coals and a windcover... 2 to 4 coals without a windcover... Eqyptian bowl.. Vortex bowl... Nothing doing.

I know, it's not... They are very consistent in producing "this" quality... The only way I can stand to smoke it is the point which the smoke is soooo thin that the tickle and thick smoke don't make me cough.. Which is a bummer. Very un satisfactory smoke.

did you try just dropping it in there? you can try a vortex but i thought it was too deep and the top burned and the bottom was untouched

Yeah that's the trend with the vortex bowl.. But yeah, I've tried just about every pack method out there.. Some yield better smoke, but not without either the throat tickle, dense smoke or both.... Making a session rather unpleasant.

I smoke AF out of a phunnel all the time and never really have any harshness. My roommate doesn't smoke nearly as much as I do tends to complain a bit about the tickle he gets from AF. I think it's just something you have to get used to Try mixing it with something you are comfortable with. I did some AF grape and Mizo mint tonight and it was the easiest smoke ever. I'm actually posting a video of my semi-big bubble that I blew out of it, so you'll know that I'm not just talking out of my ass Good luck and keep smoking.

Super dense pack (push it down firmly with your thumb) in a vortex, HD foil and 3 Cocos... smokes like a dream. It makes any harshness disappear.

4 coals is just way too much heat for AF to handle. The most that I use is 3/2 off and on with a wind cover. 3 to start and quickly down to 2 for about 20-30 min then back to three and a wind cover for the last 10 minutes or so.

squeeze out a bunch of the juice before you pack the bowl.
use less coals, 4 is ridiculous.

Default Re: Anally specific methods for smoking AF

how i smoek AF (which is what i primarily smoke):
i sprinkle the shisha in the bowl untill its full, make sure no pieces are poking up, then done.
then i single or double wrap with foil depending on waht i feel like doing, usually double.
normal hole pattern, a decent amount of medium size holes
then i put 2 exoticas on it, with a windcover (foil one made from a 32oz beerbottle)
about 5 mins later i start smoking.
i smoke it untill it starts to seem harsh or tickly, then i remove the windcover
then i put it back on when i feel i should...
i burn that bowl untill the coals finish, sometimes for 2 sets of coals.
