with nakhla, i take it out seperate it in to individual leaves, because it all bunvhed up, i sprinkle it in till it goes a bit over the bowl(egyptian bowl btw) then pack it down till its about a cm below the rim. i put two sheets of tin foil shiny side down. then poke many very small holes around then in teh center 5 holes that go all the way through to the holes in the bowl,

i been using 3 king ql. so i put two up top and roate them around for 5 min till the tobacco is farly baked then i take small hits for about 5 min .,i keep moving the coals around, then gets to a point where its perfectr and you can let the coals sit in one location and it will not burn .

hope this helps

Make sure its not touching the foil too much, or at all.

Also make sure you dont use too much heat.. i dont know anything about those coals. Are they QuickLights or Naturals.

Well it depends where your putting the coal also. I noticed it when I first started doing hookah that the top part of my Shisha would burn but the bottom was still good (I was using an egy. bowl) So a friend of mine told me to work it around the corners and not place it in the middle, make tiny holes so ash doent get in, and dont over pack. You just gotta work with it, try different ways and see what works best for ur hookah.

I also noticed that if you have a small bowl and use coals like Exotica or any big coals, it tends to be tooo hot so it completely burns it quick...so on small egy bowls I use Starbuzz coals or 3kings on even the quick lights that most hookah lounges use...Its a main reason why I switched to a funnel bowl and I love it. Last longer too.

Hope I could help
