Hmm imo, I think only 2 is enough. But if you've got really hot coals or if you have a small hookah, I suggest 3.

There have been threads on the foil method...hehe look at the how to section ^_^

well people say it keeps the foil from burning. I do it because when I smoked with a single layer, after awhile the foil would sag down and burn the tobacco. With the double layer, it'll hold itself tighter over the bowl.

Double foil offers better heat management and consitancy. Plus it stays tighter and doesn't sag so easily into the shisha.
Foil ring is for a shallow bowl, if it is impossible to keep from buring the shisha.
I think anything more the 2 layers would be wasting foil and coals. Take more heat because of the added thickness.

Yea triple foil is kind of a waste. I use 2/3 of a sheet of foil per bowl...which I fold over on itself once. The 1/3 left I stick in a can to use as a charcoal holder.

As for the foil ring, I could never get that right.

buy reynolds heavy duty foil and you'll only need one layer. I've never tried the ring or pocket method, but it's for people who have trouble with heat management.

+1

Reynold's HD foil is your friend. 1 layer is all you need.

i'll give you a tip for not burning the edges of the bowl

before adding the tobacco put foil inside the bowl and make the 5 holes that are in the bowl then add the tobacco. if u are using that crappy foil use 2 layers

The ONLY time I use 2 layer is if it's normal foil or very thin foil. I tend to always aim for HD foil, saves me time in the long run.

And yes... Renyolds Single sheet HD stuff (25 sheets in a box, blue box) has a SHINEY side. LOL!

I always use heavy duty foil, but one layered and I am not ashamed for years did such and reuse them many times. If you do want to use a few layers make sure that all the foils are placed with the shiny side down toward the shisha.

So I've been using the old foil ring for about a week now,, its quite good.. i 1st put a layer of foil, then poke all over, then i made a small ring i mean not a high on about 0.19" tall yep, then i put it then another sheet of foil both shiny side down to bring to heat to the tobacco, then the coal.. its good as this way u are sure u are only getting the heat on the tobacco.

what i do is I put the coal then i put the wind cover to head up faster, then I get the smoke going and take away the wind cover

so you put foil on top of the shisha then a ring to separate the shisha from another layer of foil that holds the coals

I use 40mm QL coals and a 14" hookah, with that i use 2 layers of HD / 3 layers of regular foil. If not, i get a burnt taste about 20 minutes in regardless of whether or not the foil is touching the shisha. Yeah, big coal, little hookah = lots of foil :P

yep, i i'm just doing that because i use a small bowl and the coal i was using i could put 1 coal and 1 foil and would get great smoke, now i got new coal and sucks i gotta put 2 coals, but if i place the 2 coals even on 2 sheets of foil then its too hot, then if i put 3 sheets of foil its not enough,, so only this method is working for this coal atm

Don't bother with the ring or multiple layers. What makes for a good session is a clean rig, a well packed bowl, good quality coals fully lit and proper heat management. Move your coals frequently and ash them often if you want a great session.
