Default Harsh Smoke

I have had this problem only with the Al Waha brand that ive been smoking, and it tends to get harsh within 10 mins of smoking it, I was wondering if you guys have any specific way of preparing the Al Waha tobacco, vs the standard ways.

It's pretty unanimous that Al Waha is crap. This could be your problem. Personally, I would never buy it... just being honest.

AW's cut is similar to nak, try packing it denser and play around with your heat management, sounds like you're either packing it too loose or using too much heat or the combination of both.

I've never experienced harshness with aw, unless I was burning it. Some flavors taste weird or there isn't much flavor at all, but it was never harsh. All 3 flavors you've ordered smoked fine (smooth I guess you can say), I just didn't care for the taste, other than the after 9.

Default Re: Harsh Smoke

when you pull the foil off, how much tobacco is stuck to the foil?
(if the answer is not none, then you need to make sure your tobacco has some space from the foil)

Try keeping your coal at the edge of the bowl instead of the center.
Make sure your foil is pulled down tight. (if it sags in the middle, it can touch the tobacco...thus burning it).

Your problem with alwaha should never be that its too harsh, it should be more of a flavor/quality problem lol

One 40mm should be fine. Try packing the tobacco just under the brim (if you look to the bowl from the side) and make sure the foil is really tight. Not \____/ but -------- (if you know what I mean). Sometimes when the foil is not tight it will go down in the middle, so it can touch the tobacco, even if you pack it under the brim.

You can also try to cut 1 40mm in half, heat the 2 pieces and put them both on the edge of the bowl. Good luck!
