Default Getting DA thick

Hey guys, i love nakhla DA but for some reason i just cant get the smoke thick. I can get great flavor and a nice buzz but the smoke is just always wispy thin. I've tried it in small egyptians large egyptians funnel bowls and i've done dence and light packs. But everytime the smoke is thin and if i try to get it thick it gets a little harsh so i dont know what im doing wrong. Im using the 250g box of DA do i need to get it in a jar to get the smoke?

Thanks guys!

i tried something yesterday with nak, i over packed a phunnel, ive only seen that done with an egyptian.
An over pack is when you put in as much tobacco over the brim as you do under the brim
i then jammed it down with the foil.
I rotated the coals over the top of it searing the absolute top layer and leaving what was under that to just bake. I got about as big a cloud as you can expect wtih nakhla. i also got a ton of flavor and nothing burned.
nak has decent clouds but not as big as other brands.
If your getting the buzz and the taste, id say your doing it right, as those two things are more important than clouds.
but you can try the overpack method, i was surprised at how well it worked.

I'd recommend the jar over the box any day; it's much much tastier. That could be what is going on.

this used to be my problem, I started buying it in the 250g cans and now it smokes big from phunnel or vortex. I swear, the can makes all the diff.

i get pretty thick and big clouds with nakhal da. i use a normal egyptian bow. I take each leave and unravel them. and pile it up leaf by leaf to the rim. Then i pack it down so its about 1 cm below teh rim. double tinfoil.
with a toothpick i poke holes all teh way down in teh center holes .
around the rim i poke very small holes. i just poke 5 holes that go all the way down near the center or where ever the holes are so theres good circulation.

put on two ql or 3 nat and jsut let them sit on top for about 5 min.
rotate them around every 5 till starts smoking really good.

Nakhla loves the heat, so just add some extra heat, and pack more too.

Use the dense packing or the overpacking method and increase the heat with windcover.

I did this method, but i felt 4 coals was too much, i used 4 to sear the tobacco in the beggining but reduced to 2 and it was perfect. thick white smoke and tons of flavor.
