1. When it stops producing good flavor
2. Yes
3. That depends on the bowl, the kind of coals and the tobacco.

when it runs out the smoke stops

i usually leave it until the next session and clean the old tobacco as part of my prep
only thing i do is dump the water

it varies based on bowl, for most tobacco though i use 3 and a windcover and then drop to 2 coals no windcover after letting it sit for 5 minutes before my first pull.

1. shisha is done when there is no flavor/smoke has a burnt flavor which means you pretty much burnt the shisha more than you should have.
2. after a session i usually let the bowl cool down then clean it out throwing the foil and shisha away
3. number of coals depends on the size of the bowl. a small bowl can use 2. a bigger bowl such as a phunnel bowl and use 3 at a time. if using a small bowl you can experiment with the amount of heat that can go on it before the smoke will become harsh

Its all pretty much been covered up there. I smoke until theres no flavor any moreand then just throw it out. (Dont throw away lit coals unless you like fire). Try experimenting with coals for heat management until you find a setup you like. Id suggest starting with one 33mm QL and 2 nats and go from there. Happy smoking man

Hey guys, don't mean to hijack this thread, but I have a quick question. I use some generic quick light coals (I think 40mm?) and usually place a single coal on the foil. I've been doing this ever since I've been smoking, but you guys are saying to put 2 or 3 on, is there a difference between natural and quick light coals in the amount of heat they produce? (since I assume everyone saying to put three on is using natural)

1. When there's no more flavor.
2. Yes
3. It depends on the how big the bowl is. A big one, like a phunnel bowl, might need 3. I usually use 3 to start it, then I put down one. When there's not enough heat I just put it back on.
