What bowl and coals are you using? I usually pack both fluffy into the vortex with a light pat down (rather than dense alas nakhla) and use 3 cocos to start things off then drop one and use windcover on and off.

Also when poking holes in the foil, I use a small needle and poke alot of them, not like with other shishas where I use the sharpened tongs poker and do only 3 rounds, imo it helps with the flavor and doesn't let the shish burn out as fast.

I usually use a standard Egyptian with 2 Ch Nats. IDK soo many ppl rave about HH&HF and really i gave it a shot for a long time now, starting to turn away from it.

I also haven't had much luck getting a good smoke from HH/HF with an egyptian bowl but by the looks of things it seems as though the vortex is the bowl of choice for use with this brand.

I got my vortex today so I'll try some Atomic Fireball in it over the weekend and see how it goes.

If you are using a standard bowl I would use 3 CH Nats to start and then remove one when needed. Also give it a light pack and then add a touch more to the bowl. HH for me isn't too good, but the mix of HF is good. Weird I know.

Grapeful Dead is probably my favorite of HF. I'd go with Capt's advice. Throw three coals on there and take one off once you get good clouds and use a wind cover from there on. also, pack it down just a tad bit more than other shishas.

I used to smoke a lot of HH/HF because my local tobacco shop carried it. I smoked it with a standard Mya bowl until that bowl shattered to a million little pieces, which was probably the biggest blessing in disguise because I went out and picked up a vortex. I packed it down and kept a little more room in between the foil than I do for Nakhla(around 1/8-1/4"). For a vortex i used 2-3 half coals(usually 40mm QL) and at the time I didn't have a wind cover so instead keeping the heat in that way, I would make one extra coal to rotate on the tray. Its a very touchy tobacco and although I wouldn't go as far to say its the worst tobacco. Although I have since switched to Nakhla, I still enjoyed the HH flavors I tried when I did.
