Default Using a screen

Sugacaneshane gave me an idea to use a screen with foil on top of that to create an "air pocket" above the shisha. And this gave me the most flavor yet out of a session. The only problem is that you need a little more heat then normal.

It's pretty much the same as the foil ring method. Especially in what it's supposed to accomplish. I haven't tried it with the screen, but I have tried the foil ring method. I found that the shisha didn't burn as fast, but it was harder to maintain proper heat to get enough smoke. You have to use more coals or a wind cover (which I don't have). I didn't really notice much difference in the flavor of the session. Maybe I'll give it another shot soon.

If you know how to pack a bowl in the first place these little tricks aren't needed. This might be something for a rookie who burns their shisha all the time, but I don't need to bother. Any technique that requires more coals is wasteful.

I would rather burn 1 more centimeter of Exotica and be able to make a perfect bowl each and every time then burn a bowl full of shisha and puke.

Nope, just saying that I don't scorch bowls because I take my time and watch what I'm doing. It is very easy to pack a great bowl after you've done it a few times.

Feel like sharing or maybe making an official thread as to how to pack the perfect bowl or the perfect way to set everything up to achieve clouds and an all around better session? Maybe a video or just text. But I would like to know what I'm doing wrong since every couple of times I burn my shisha on accident.
