Default Smoke is too hot? And it's not as tasteful...

Hello there hookah pro ppl! I just got my package with coconara coals and AF grape/mint/watermelon... Coals give better heat, tobacco tought would give better flavor... But I have this problem, sometimes the smoke is too hot to inhale a lot (yes I use ice in the vase), and the smoke isn't super tasteful (smoke tastes better than nakhla/instant lights)...

Am I doing something wrong? Using CC 3 coals, many small holes in the foil, not overpacking the bowl...

Everytime before hookah session I think "yay hookah time", after I set it up and smoke I think "I don't want it anymore"...

Plz help!!! thx guys, HookahPro FTW!

Try using less coals, a 2nd layer of foil.
at risk of sounding like an idiot do you have enough water in the vase?

I find 2 cocos on a phunnel bowl packed with AF and occasional wind cover is ideal. 3 cocos is a bit too much. So if you're using 3 cocos on a regular Egyptian or mod bowl...it's not gonna be good.

1. Use three cocos to warm the bowl then 2 is plenty with windcover on a vortex or small funnel
2. If your using reg foil double up
3.make sure you have about an 1/8 of an inch btw your shisha and your foil
4. make sure ur using a bowl wit decent depth

Use three for the first ten minutes then take one off, once they get smaller add the third again.
Also use a wind cover to experiment?

haha hmmm well if its too hot try more holes? not enough smoke though you want less holes to concentrate heat but your getting too much heat... hmmm well first off if you use a funnel bowl or any with AF pack it a little tight. And yea use 3 coco to start it then drop down to 2 with a windcover should give nice smoke then back to 3 no wind cover and then finish it off with windcover again. GL!

hmm, go with works in terms of the hose, its possible the large gauge is actually blocking the airway

I mean km hose pulls better but the smoke looks hotter than smoke from the other hose

That makes zero sense. How would a larger gauge block the airway? Longer hose possibly, smaller mouth tip possibly, but I don't think a larger gauge would block the airway.

Regardless, 2 cocos and a windcover should be killer.

Km hose fits hard in it, but it's holding in place and it can't block the airway cause smoke pulls thrue it easier, just smoke gets too hot cause it pulls so fast...

My hookah is about 24 inches or more

try not letting the hookah sit too long. if ure smoking by yourself its hard but i found thats the only way that it would be harsh. if ure letting it sit put the coals on the outside until u smoke again and that should keep ure bowl from getting too hot while keeping it warm. from what it sounds like ure doing everything right. 3 ccn coals are not bad at all.

Thx I noticed that, and I also was smoking few sheeshas since I past posted and I'm still getting better tasting smoke from a long, small hole hose, than from km... The km still has harsher smoke and maybe even less smoke o.0
