Just about. You might want to make the outer ring of holes a little bigger, and move the inner ring of holes a little more out.

Too many holes on the outside. If you have too many the top tobacco burns too quickly and will create a burnt cake on the top that will ruin your sesh for various reasons.

the middle has too many as well.

I say do around 16 average size (4 for each quadrant) around the outside, 4 bigger in the middle area, then 8 smaller ones (2 each quadrant) in the inner-most. The one hole in the center is optional; it is mostly to get more air into your smoke. I would not recommend using the center hole once you can pack Tangiers well.

Wait.... you are talking about Tangiers smoking, right?

Ok good.
Cause non-Tangiers tobacco is a bit different.

My hole pattern works great for me, Ive been using it for months now, even set up a foam block with pins in it, so that i can do it in a few seconds instead of trying to line the pins up perfectly. The reason there are so many is because they are tiny holes. Literally I use a pin, the kind you would use for sewing.. I don't have trouble with an ash cake up top, and the advantage to the tiny holes is that ash doesn't really go down the holes easily.

I got the idea from someone on this forum, but for the life of me i cant remember who..
Here are the pics of the foam thingy. I mainly use it when I'm drunk, cause when I'm sober I like to poke the holes by hand cause it gives the coals time to warm up(and im just anal retentive enough to want everything to get done at once). You have to be careful putting the pins in, cause even though it looks great on the top, they can come through crooked and then you end up with major holes where 2 pins are touching or whatever.

I'd say two, maybe three if you're not getting a lot of smoke. Just play around with it.

I have also been having problems w/ my small funnel. I have been told that you were not supposed to put holes in the middle. But I can't get very much smoke, even out of the new 38'' hookah I have.

Are you getting a really tight draw? If not then you may not have enough heat on the bowl. If that is not it then you have a leak. If that is not it then you forgot to buy tobacco.

Regarding the actual topic of this post, That looks ok. i personally would move the inner holes out to about the center between where the two rings of holes are right now. Too close to the center and it just gets drawn down the stem. Oh and get rid of the hole over the center. Make or get a mod. Even just the alligator clip mod will work better than the hole method.

That is about the setup I use for tangiers and three rings is the set up I use for all other tobacco. hole size seems good. What are you using to poke the holes? a tumb tack or less is best for me.

For heat I would use three coconut coals on a small funnel.

i hope this helps out. This is advice based on my own experience and as this thread shows, each person has their own methods.
