Default Coals on a Vortex

I got a vortex for christmas - I quite like it, but I'm having problems with it...I seem to burn the shisha quite a lot, i put three coconaras on there, pack it fairly loose, below the holes, pretty heavy foil, loads of small holes blah blah blah. Lil help? =]

could be too loose a pack, not enough shisha and it wont handle the heat, should get 25-30 grms in there, if you think your doing that drop a coal off, and make sure its not somehow touching the foil

You dont need loads of holes lol
Using a windcover helps tremoundously
Start with 3, reduce to 2 with a windocver

I find lots of little holes is actually the best way to go. More air flow without letting ash fall through.

But yeah I think ill probably pack it down a tiny bit more and drop a coal off once its heated up part of the way... Hopefully thatll do it =]

I just poke a bunch of tiny holes in concentric circles around the bowl. I use three CH nats until they get low and then put on two fresh ones. Works perfectly every time!

agreed with Jride, 2 coals (maybe 3 at first to jumpstart the bowl) with a windcover makes for a perfect vortex smoke for at least an hour.
