Default Idea for a helpful noob thread regarding shisha

So I saw DJ Mike made a video/thread about how to pack Hookah Hookah Shisha. It got me thinking about a thread or addition to The Girlfriends beginners thread.

How would people think of a summary of "Tips on how to pack (X) shisha". x being a brand.

I know a bunch of people have a lot of problems with packing nak or af or whatever they arent used to. I personaly have issues packing AF as I really only smoke Nakhla.

The info's all out in the forums, its just a matter of bringing it all together in a common thread. If people are interested in it, I could start throwing already existing info together.

not a bad idea...
very complex though, so ive got my AF now and I have bowl A and coal B
youve got bowl B and coal A
and another guy has bowl b and coal b
you see where im going with this? It could get very complex.
Plus some people like to sit back and relax and take it easy, and other like to spend alot of time heat managing, so there are certain techniques to get bigger flavor and smoke however your going to be busier managing it

then to make things more complicated...even though there may be a general way to pack a certain brand, there is a rogue flavor out there that doesnt follow those rules

AF packing is basic, just break it apart with your fingers and sprinkle it in just below the rim of the bowl so it isn't touching the foil and make sure it's loose to create airflow. If You're using a regular bowl, use something to move the tobacco away from the center hole, that'll help the airflow even more.

In terms of heat, certain flavors tend to be more sensitive than others. EX. Cinnamon doesn't handle heat as well as mint, it's all subjective. Just apply coals as necessary. With something like a vortex, the same principles apply, except for the center hole.

It would definetly not be a be all end all thing just a starting point for new comers. Like nakhla tends to expand and is very heat tolerant. More just a basic "this is generally how the shisha is smoked"

I know alot of people smoke the smoke shishadifferent ways. But that has come through experience, and tri and error. I just figure it would be a great thing to just click on and have a cheat sheet starting point if you will.

Keep the thoughts coming though. It's definetly helpful to hear peoples takes
