Default Double Foil?

I hear a lot of people talking about using 2 layer HD foil. What does double foil do for your session?

The reason I double foil sometimes is if I want 2-3 full blocks of coal on top of my bowl giving out a massive amount of heat for a long period of time yet at the same time having the double foil will help alleviate burning and help retain the heat much longer in my opinion.

I'll use 2 layers regular foil when using coconara's because they burn so hot...1 layer of foil either HD or regular depending on the coals and tobacco used

I use two layers of HD foil out of habit. I just tear off a small 6" inch section of the roll and then tear the foil in half and use both sheets. It might help with heat management but I mainly do it out of practice.

its mostly just habit, plus its just easier to tear of that strip and double up instead of having half a piece just floating around imo

if you are using a tobacco that is very heat sensitive double foil helps with the heat management so you aren't taking off coals and your wind cover every couple mins.

What he said. Just a method of heat management. Also double foil is often used when you run out of HD foil.

i like using double foil because it helps from burning the tobacco and makes the bowl last a little bit longer.

Default Re: Double Foil?

If I'm using standard foil then I use two layers for management of the heat. If I'm using HD I use just one layer. It seems to work pretty well for me that way. Of course, you'll have to experiment for yourself and see what is best for you. Smoke happy.

I doubled it because we didn't have any HD. But that's not what I was laughing at. I was laughing about how he just flat out said, "Some people have heat management issuses."
