Default I Keep Burning My Shisha and I donno Why HELP!!!

I was wondering if anyone could help me keep from burning my shisha. I am using a Temsah hookah with a Vortex bowl. I am also using a Nammor hose and Three Kings quick light coals (the big ones). I haven't had a good session yet because my Starbuzz keeps burning and I dunno what i am doing wrong. if someone could please help me figure this thing out i would truly appreciate it.

Lose the quicklights and get some coconaras or at least exoticas. Those quicklights are too big, too hot, and full of all kinds of awful garbage.

try coconaras and start out using a couple or even three. At least you can take one off....just keep messing with it and youll get it. Im a newb so I had problems at first but I got it quickly.

my 3 kings worked just fine, maybe your shisha is to close to top, or to wet. noticed wetter shisha burns easy in vortex.

What happens if you use 2 coals?

Ryry, You have to give more information...

We dont know how you pack your bowl and how many coals you use. I hate 3kings, but they didnt burn starbuzz for me when I used them. I would pack the starbuzz just a tad above the spires on the vortex bowl then pack it down very lightly. Put three rings of toothpick sized holes in the foil and put two coals on the bowl.

That should give you a good smoke. Works for me everytime.

Also, make sure that the coals are completely ashed over before you use them. Dont put them on the bowl untill no black can be seen.

make sure u leave about 3mm between the foil and the shisha tobacco, also 3 coals is excessive imo , 2 at a time maximum, also some flavours are just natually harsh, is it reoccuring with all your shihsa tobaccos ?

Overpacking Starbuzz or packing it too close to the foil is when bad things happen!!
It has always been very heat tolerant for me.
Try moving coals to outside rim and using less starbuzz.
Or break the QL in two and use fewer for less heat!

You may need to move your coals around a bit. Especially when you're first starting your session.

iv just started using coconaras and they are great. before that i used 3king QL's as well, i have the 33mm and 40mm coals. i smoke a lot of SB also and i typically use 2 33mm or 3 half pieces of 40mm on a vortex bowl.

like everyone said, make sure the shisha is not to close to the foil, rotate every 10-15min or as you fell the smoke getting harsh.

i tend to keep my coals on the outter edges of the bowl aswell.

good luck!
happy smoking!

This. if they are 33mm ql's (the small ones) use 2 at a time and if there 40mm (big ones) break them in halves and use three halves at a time.

Starbuzz needs to be baked (steady temp)
not fried (when you expose it to a ton of heat suddenly)

my guess, you put your coals on and start smoking. This would be frying it.

Try putting on 3 coals and not smoking for about 5-8 minutes
then remove a coal, rotate and smoke

don't overpack it
don't put too Many holes in the top of the foil

starbuzz should be easy, it's soupy

It's got so much glycerine I didn't think it was even possible to burn it.

40mm 3 kings burn way to hot for a normal sized bowl use the 33mm and use one and jus move it around through out the session")

Hey man, coco-naras are an awesome coal, but the three kings can work good as well, you needa just make sure you don't overpack it with the starbuzz, go lightly with the holes in the foil, throw 2 quick lights on it, and chill for a few minutes. Like a few guys said, let it simmer. It'll hit much nicer.

Tips: Make sure the tobacco doesn't touch the foil
Keep the coals on the edges
Manage the heat well, maybe invest in the 3K 33m instead of the 40mm
Purge often
