Default Tangiers take 2

I have been smoking for a few years now but back when i was first getting into hookah I got tangiers to try, and needless to say it was terrible. I was a newb, didnt acclimate pack right use good coal etc. Well I have decided to give it another go and just got some Lucid orange soda. What I am asking is that the tangiers lovers out there sum up how they get great results ex. how they pack, number of coal (im a coco guy) the usual stuff. I will be using a small tangiers funnel for the record on a pharonie. thanks in advance

mix it up with for so its really broken up then scoop some on the fork then dump it in the bowl. then level it with the fork spreading it out. rinse and repeat. when you foil it i do 3 rings of 24-16-12 and go all the way down. everyone goes "ZOMG PACK IT UNTIL ITS A SOLID PUCK" but i think thats crap and uses too much tobacco. also use 2 coals and start them with maybe a 1/4 hanging off the bowl then 5-10 minutes later rotate them 1/4th the way around and over the coals life move them closer to the center

I pack it like Eric shows in his tangiers video. I poke holes all the way around, and over the phunnel, except I use a toothpick instead of an oyster fork. I use an oyster fork to fill the bowl then pat down. 2 cocos let it sit for a few min before hitting it. When they begin to die down, windcover. 3 coals is too much.

Here's the video: http://www.youtube.com/user/*******H...18/ACfPMVGV2V0

See thats my question to. Doing his method burns the crap out of the tobacco and it gets harsh really quick. My buddy does this method all the time and burns it everytime. LOL

This is how I do it and it is the only way I have ever gotten tangiers to smoke correctly. Pack it really tight and then foil it, one layer. Poke 3 rings of holes with a toothpick all the way to the bottom of the bowl. Then I take the outside ring of a mason jar ad flip it upside down and it fits perfectly on top of my tangiers bowl. Then I wrap foil over that and poke 4 3x3 square holes in the top of the foil, if it gets harsh poke more holes in the top foil for better airflow. 4 ch nats and a wind cover and it smokes like a dream. Kinda confusing so if you have questions about it just ask and I will try to explain it better

No idea how it doesn't burn but it works. I pack my tangiers like this all the time using my small phunnel and 3 coals and I get great smoke 100% of the time. I used my friend's video as a reference also. I think its a better reference than Eric's video.

Well if your going to do It like erik, but don't know how much tobacco to put in. Then I usually do it without the foil test. just pack it tight enough to get enough space between the shisha and the foil. About an eight of an inch, maybe a little more. When the shisha starts backing, it will rise a little.

Other than that, the pack is tight. push it down till the juice starts coming out.

And as for using too much tobacco, there is a couple ways to fix that. One is by using some foil on the bottom of the bowl till you get a nice flat surface. This is reusable if you take one sheet of foil and make a cup. Then pack the shisha. This method is if your using a tangiers phunnel bowl.
The other method is the new alien phunnel by hookah John.

For me, the Shisha never touches the foil. After you pack it down and do the foil test, stretch the foil tight again before poking holes. Foil should not touch, but you may get sizzling from some of the juices on the foil holes coming in contact with coals.

im sticking to my guns and say that my method is almost impossible to screw up. ive been cant walk straight drunk and pack it fine. the only way to really mess it up is if you tear the foil with a coal.

I went with Erics pack technique, but used a circular hole pattern with toothpick size holes.
I was not looking forward to the first pull thinking i was gonna get a mouthful of burnt soy sauce but it was really great. Went with 3 coals to start and the orange soda was fantastic appreciate the input as always.
