Default More Burnt Shisha

so i have had this problem literally every session i have. when i take the foil off at the end all the shisha is black and burnt. belive me ive tried everything to prevent this. i have filled the bowl only half way, use less coals, put two layers of foil on, tried lifting the coal off the bowl using the foil. i also just got a medium tangiers bowl with the smilies mod. after my first couple sessions with that they still were burnt. i only filled the tangiers up half way and with the mod it lifts the foil up so the coals dont weigh it down, and i had 2 1/4 sticks of exoticas on there(if that makes a difference.) when you smoke does your shisha look exactly the same(in color) when you take the foil off? what am i doing wrong? thanks

The shisha is always burned and black when you're done with it. That's how you get the smoke.. Keeping the shisha a little bit lower than the foil IS good, but only because it keeps it from having a direct burn(a couple of millimeters at most is all it takes). The difference that you might see people describing about "burning their shisha" is that a direct burn(which makes the smoke taste bad) is where the shisha is being burned by touching the heat source through the foil. The proper way is more of an "air burn" i guess... Where the air is passing over the coals and the air heats to a couple of hundred degrees, and then passes through your shisha, to cook it to give you nice smoke without the harsh burnt taste.

It will however always, no matter if its Air or Direct Burn, turn the shisha black and burnt.
Hope that helps.

Its supposed to be like that when you are done with it. The tobacco has to steam to make the smoke so its going to be burned up at the end.

Yup its totally normal for the shisha to be completely black when your session is done. If it didn't taste burnt or it didn't taste like crap...You didn't burn the shisha at all :P

Lol you used to confuse me when you said that in past threads until now
