Default Mizo?

So i tried nahkla mizo for the first time tonight. It was the Peach kind. Everything i've herd about nahkla says it is very heat tolerant, so based on that note, i went ahead and set up my rid with one layer of foil and 3 cocos.... ... ... Despite the fact that mizo seems slightly more moist than most nakhla, i went ahead and did it anyways...


HARSH!!!!! bwahlg.... it was really really harsh... i used my vortex bowl and didn't even come close to packing it to the rim, but honestly this was so harsh i went ahead and took two coals off. After that it settled down a bit and ended up being wonderful...

So how do you guys set up your mizo? just out of curiosity how do you get the best results out of it? because i never want it to be that harsh again...

I pack mine just like I do regular Nakhla.
Overpack it in a phunnel bowl with two Exotica pieces under a windcover.
I'll add a third piece halfway through the session.

Nakhla likes the heat!
While other brands are screaming like James Brown (AAAIIIIEEE! HOT!! TOO HOT!!), Nakhla is just getting warmed up!

The key is to overpack it.

This!

But if you dont want to overpack you can firm pack it in the bowl. Fill it to just above the rim and then tamp it down with slight pressure till it has a very light springy feel to it. Then you should be good to go.

this is how I pack my Nak Mizo in a vortex:

Put tobacco in the bowl about half way up the spire. Then pack & smush it down pretty densely. Then add more tobacco so that it is just below the foil. When you add more tobacco the second time around try to keep the tobacco away from the holes in the spire. Then add a layer of foil or two, poke holes, and enjoy.

when i smoked this i did pack it pretty dense. made sure i smashed it down pretty good so it had that springy feel to it. I leveled it off just below the rim, put one layer of foil on, and three coco's, and it was like instantly harsh. even after the coals had only been on there for about 30 seconds.

Take it level with or past the rim, need the foil to stick to the top layer

Question for everyone, does the Mizo give a different buzz than regular Nakhla? Just curious, because I know it is a bit wetter etc, but I love hookah buzz, so thought I would ask before picking some up.

me too i'm receiving my order of mizo and a vortex at the same time. I was also wondering how to pack mizo in vortex, it would be great if there was a video on it. but i'll guess i'll just try to pack it dense and tight.

Use the search tab, there has been a ton of previous threads about this topic. I actually learned how to pack my vortex from watching youtube videos on it and reading what other members have done.

OK, so i gave mizo peach another chance today. I packed it all the way to the rim (so the foil touched to shisha as someone above advised me to do), used one layer of foil and three coco's and it was still ridiculously harsh... i could barely take a pull without coughing... Obviously what ever is inside the bowl is burning due to the foil touching the shisha.... but this is what many have told me to do so i went ahead and did it. HOW THE HELL DO I GET THIS STUFF TO WORK AND WHAT AM I DOING WRONG

I did this a few hours ago and it burned the upper half of shisha, but smoked good for an hour. I used two QL's on opposite edges of the bowl and rotated them around the edge every 10 minutes or so.

I think I didn't put enough tobacco in... After I packed it down under the holes I sprinkled more up to the rim then moved it away from the holes in the spire. I'm wondering if I should pack the entire bowl sort of dense up to the rim... hmm...

OP - I didn't get any harsh smoke this way though, not sure what's going on with that?

I didn't really try to keep the shisha away from the spire, i just packed it extremely densely all the way to the top, used one layer of kroger brand foil, and 3 cocos. It tasted like a peach flavored ash with a hint of fire and sore throat...

I do a medium dense pack with mizo in phunnel and vortex bowls with 3 coco's and it always smokes great. Maybe it's your "Kroger foil"?? try double layering foil and start with the coals halfway off the bowl
