Default Burned Tobacco?

Hey I have a big question: when I end smoking on my mini mya I take the foil out to desamble the hookah and I always see the burned tobacco, some of it sticking to the foil, is it normal? because sometimes my smoking sessions are kind of harsh. and i think is because of that, what should I do to fix it I use a miny acrylic mya hookah, a small mya bowl, nammor hose and 2 coconaras

dont pack the bowl too much there should be room between the foil and the shisha... and you should be rotating the coals every so often, if you let the coals sit in one spot it's going to burn and give you the harsh smoke..

Yup and make sure the holes arent too big so ash doesnt get through, and if that doesnt work add more holes for less heat. The shisha should look almost crispy and black when its fully done but not burnt. Overcooked in a matter of speaking haha

Which mini mya? Is it the clearance one from H-S? If so, the bowl that comes with it may be your problem. The one time I used it, it sucked. If it is another one, the guys above me gave good points.

The best rule for hookah ever. Don't overpack; Don't underpack. When you pack it hold it level with your eyes to see if any shisha stick over the top if it does push it down or take it out.

I have the same Mya. The bowl does suck! You have to throw it away and use something else.

I agree with Nyxxie! Vortex FTW!

I use a small Egyptian bowl nearly everyday on my Hookah (only have Egyptians ) and in all the time I have burned only one bowl of tobacco and that was because the Missus put a Pizza down for me to eat while I was smoking and I was more than three quarters of the way done with the bowl at that stage so the pizza won that fight and I ignored the coal so burnt tobacco.

I lightly fluff the tobacco and pack it to just under the rim then foil the bowl and poke the holes I try to poke the first holes from the stem side of the bowl first so that the holes go through the tobacco and the foils (bottom to the top of the bowl) these are the main airways i then poke some holes around the edges of the bowl down to the base of the bowl the put the bowl on the stem put coals on wait for tobacco to warm up and

Glad to hear you are getting up and running! Sometimes it's a real bummer whenever you smoke and you just can't seem to get it right. I had to go through that my first 4-5 sessions and I finally got it right and it was like "I see the light!" haha, but anyways, good to hear you are doing well.

Steel screens clear up this problem. Not only is easy to see how you pack it and correct it if you see shisha touching it, but you can also correct in mid smoke very easy if things get shitty...
