Default Did I pack my bowl too full?

So I recently got a hookah after enjoying them at parties for a while, and both times I've fired it up, it's been really crappy. The smoke was way too harsh, to the point where I would stop early. While disassembling it, I noticed quite a bit of shisha stuck to the foil. Is this a symptom of putting too much shisha in the bowl?

You would be correct. Pack the shisha loosely and below the rim of the bowl. Make sure no shisha is touching the foil. Also make sure you don't use too much coals and move them every 5 mins or so. Heat management is key to great sessions. Good luck!

If you want to learn how to properly pack a bowl, you can watch these "how to" vids! ^_^


Also there may be a possibilty that you put too many coals on the bowl. Take maybe a coal off and put them on the edges of the bowl and NOT the middle

most of my bowls have tobacco stuck to the top. its not that big of a deal at least not to the point of being totally unsmokable...you might be putting too much charcoal on.

most tobaccos should be packed about 1/8" bolow your foil.Unless your smoking Tangiers.In which case you will want to over pack.And be sure to watch your heat.
