Default ASHY LARRY!

Ok so am I the only one who gets a bunch of ash on top of the shisha after smoking? I get what I consider a fairly large amount of ash! How do I fix it. I currently use 3 Kings which I believe to be a knock off, And some japanese tabs! both ash kinda fast but the three kings kinda burn disgusting! I'm switching to naturals!

Hmm probably because there are too many holes and they are big? Make smaller holes like maybe with a sewing needle (your gonna need A LOT of holes with these though) or a toothpick (with small reasonable holes). If you do this, no more ash :P

Mae sure you ash at least every 10 mins (cuz their QL)

BTW they probably taste nasty cuz they arent red hot all around. Make sure there are no black spots on the coal b4 you put it on the bowl cuz if not, you will taste the coals and you will get a nasty headache...pleh

When you ash a 3K, try to pick it up in one piece and drop it on the tray to ash it. Then blow the bowl from the top and place the now smaller 3K back on.

You may have the holes too big and or too many on your foil. Also every 10 minutes or so I pull the coals off the foil and knock some ash off in the tray and blow off the left over ash that is left sitting on the foil.

I've never used 3 kings, but I do the same thing with my Exotica's

Just make sure you de-ash every 10-15 minutes, and gently pick up the coal, don't just grab it wiht the tong. make some smaller holes too, i just use a toothpick and poke the smallest holes i can, and i never get ash on my shisha, unless i do something stupid, like blowing the ash when i'm directly over the bowl...

Also, make sure you blow off the ash off the bowl, not move it off the bowl with tongs. hehe cuz when I was a newb, I used to do that and always wondered why my bowl tasted like crap lol and then find out that there was a crapload of ash all of the baccy.

Holes are too big; use something like a bobbin pin, safety pin, or toothpick. Lightly blow the ash off the bowl, also ash you coals every 15-20 mins on the ash tray.

I make puny holes with toothpics, I waited till the coals were red all around and when I try to ash them as you say the coal kinda just explodes and breaks into a few pieces(3k does this not the japs). But you guys do get like ash still right? Even a little bit?

Try making smaller holes - I get it sometimes w/ QL's or ST's, but with naturals, unless I went hog wild w/ the holes, I get very little ash ontop of the tobacco when finished.

I had this problem as well, just do as everyone is saying less/smaller holes.

Now as far as them ashing well I dunno what everyone else thinks but the 3ks I've got suck as well. They break into bits and taste like arse. But according to last "fake 3ks" post mine should be real. I'm not a fan of QL.

No one is calling you retarded...
We were just offering some pointers. All of us had to learn at some point. I remember when I used to just scrape off the ash from the top of the coal..

OK maybe i went far on the whole retarded thing! But yea I'll definitely try these tips. As of now to poke holes I use the very tip of a .5mm mechanical pencil. is that small enough?

Speaking of retarded. When I first started smoking I took my coals off the foil and knocked them around in the tray and tried to push off the left over ash on the foil and stuck my tongs through the foil.

Its funny now that I look back on it, but I was pretty mad when it first happened haha

Try smaller holes, and after you ash the coal, blow the remaining ash off the top of the bowl. I usually cup my hands around the bowl and blow the ash gently into the tray. Then put your coal back on top.

Austin pretty much said what I said, I am just saying again
