Question double layer??

hey, ive just been wondering whether i should double layer the foil on my bowl.
i usually use 1 layer of foil.. but now it seems that the bowl burns faster than im used to. if i double layer, will less smoke come out?

I do a double layer all the time because I use regular foil and not heavy duty. It makes it stronger to deal with the coals you're going to be putting on top so it doesn't sag into the shisha and burn it because of direct contact.

It won't make less smoke, use the same amount of holes as you have in the past (i use a lot as it is because i like a lot of even air flow) and you'll be fine.

I always use two layers of foil and (almost) always get nice, thick clouds.

Welcome to HP!

Try doubling up. If it works for you, great!
I only use one layer of the really cheap stuff and have good luck with it.

I've only use two layers of foil. I find it easier to manage the heat.

Yeah, 2 layers will do. I also know people who use 3-4-5 layers of foil.

No matter how many layersyou have as long as the foil stays in place and is rigid. The rest is down to poking the holes. Make sure you penetrate the foil and shishaand have a smooth air flow. Tin foil conducts heat perfectly so if you keept it under 4-5 layers it is irelevant.

I like to use two layers of foil. Depending on the bowl and the tobacco, it sometimes needs more heat, but the heat management process is not so delicate so I think in the end it's worth it.

Chuck the foil and go with steel screens...

If you are a funnel user the HD foil is better in my opinion, it really helps prevent dip into the middle spire

I double it, but rip the sheets in half and do it that way. Rather then just folding it. It feels like it's tighter on the bowl this way. Probably just in my head though, lol.

Gah i hate those, they never seemed to give me the amount of heat i need and a lot of ash got in the bowl, if it works good for you then props on that but i've never liked them.

My precut squares are pretty thin so I usually end up doubling up.
