Default Packing Nakhla in a standard egyptian..

I'm sure there's 500,000 threads on this already, But I was unable to find anything that helped me. (Granted, I could have looked harder).

I've been having a little bit of trouble getting nakhla to smoke out of my egyptian bowl (Standard KM egyptian).

I've been smoking for a while, so I'm not complete noob status, but I can smoke tangiers/Starbuzz/Mizo/e.t.c fine, out of anything, but I can't for the life of me get standard nakhla to smoke out of my egpytian without it getting harsh, almost instantly.

It's either NO smoke (not just a little bit) or fairly harsh, and the tobacco is never touching the foil..

Anyone know why?

Reg NAK is a lot different then the others when i pack nak in a standard Egyptian i like to go for a much denser pack, but with a little more then avg distance from the foil. Then once the HD foil is in place i like to make ring of holes that push all the way to the bottom of the bowl. Then a center hole all the way through into the shaft of the bowl. I have found this method of packing leads to massive cloud, 0 burning, and a medium-easy draw. I don't like to "sprinkle" nak, i load it in there, but not nearly an over pack.

What and how many coals are you using, to little shisha can over heat very fast no matter how tolerant the brand is

Alright cool, thanks.
I've mostly just sprinkled it in, then pushed it down with a fork slightly, and looking back I think I wasn't pushing it down enough. I'll try your method and report back in.

Thinking I'll use two CH nat's, and I have my windcover nearby to apply as necessary.

sounds kosher, score your nats down the middle and then break them and make 4 pieces for each side of the bowl

Yeah theres loads of threads on this. It a matter of opinion on how you smoke it. theres people who like a dense pack and they smoke well, i like to lightly sprinkle and very lightly pack and it smokes amazingly well. I think the issue when using the egyptian bowl is to make sure the coal is just rite. i usually use like 3 half peices of coconut coal and no windcover and start from the outside. Its just a matter of practice and dont think that its the packing at all, nakhla is very forgiving ive found when it comes to how you pack it!!!
