Default Am i Burning my Shisha?

I just bought my first hookah and the first three times ive smoked i think im burning the shisha but im not sure. the smoke isnt harsh but when i go to clean the bowl the tobacco is black on the top and looks fresh tword the bottom. also my coals arent lasting very long, i get maybe 20min out of one coal. im using the quick light golden coals and Roman shisha that came with my hookah, the oriental magic foil, and my hookah is an Econo Mya Gelato with a mod bowl.

First off, welcome to HP!
If your smoke isn't getting harsh, you're not burning the shisha. If it still looks fresh on the bottom, that means you can put on a fresh coal and keep smoking.
Although I'd ditch those quicklights and go with natural coals. They last longer, they don't affect the flavor, and are cheaper in the long run. Coconaras or Exoticas are usually preferred.

As a rule of thumb, if the smoke tastes like burning, you burning you shisha. The real question is are you gtting any flavor with your current setup?

Id like to go to natural coals but i dont have an electric stove or a coal heater. Is there another way to get them fully heated up?

The electric burner many like to use here only cost about $10 at Walgreen's. Or for a few dollars more, you can get a Coleman camp stove.

I light up my nats on a regular fire range stove. Ive never had any issues.

This is where all you trolls come out and start saying "your house is going to blow up because your doing it wrong".

I also suggest buying a mini stove thing. It works great for me.
