Default HELP!!! Frustrated in Florida

So we received our new Mya rig from Hookah-Shisha (LOVE this pipe) but we're having massive problems with coal placement.

We have three types of coals: 3 Kings, Hookahology (flat squares) and Golden Coals...the shisha burns and the smoke is harsh...so I've done all the things that I've read about here...I even watched HookahPro's video on YouTube...to NO avail...

Please help me figure out what we're doing wrong...I'm ready to pack this pipe up!

3 Kings if fine, dont know about the other two. If they're 40mm start with one cut in half and place the halves at opposite sides of the bowl on the very outside of the bowl. Pack the bowl low so it does not touch the foil. You can even go double on the foil to help for now. Move the coals every 5 mins or so until you get it down. Make sure the tobacco is loosely packed.

Make sure there is good air flow when you pack your bowl and try using just half a coal. Sometimes I find that is all I need with some bowls. I usually have the foil touching the shisha and poke allot of holes in the foil. I just keep the coal on the outside rim and move it when the smoke changes (less flavor and smoke thickness). I've only burned shisha like once! I end with the coal on the middle of the bowl. That help at all?

Thank you all for your responses....

1stGenRex: I am using a shisha that was purchased from a local hookah lounge - I have no idea what brand it is...it isn't bad though - no large stems and it all seems pretty evenly cut...I've not had to squeeze any excess molasses out. I am packing the bowl the way sambookah showed in his vid on youtube...or at least I did last night and that seemed to work pretty well - I used the same hole pattern as well...AND swawesome, I cut the coles in half (or as well as they would cut) and kept them around the rim of the bowl as well as moving them around every 5 minutes or so as kwikwi suggested...

Thanx again for your in put...I'll keep you posted as to our progress.

the mya bowls are a bit small in diameter, not necessarily a bad thing since they are deep enough. MYA does make larger bowls, ahem, or you could go with a larger egyptian clay bowl. Those bowls (as well as phunnels) have much larger diameters and you can place your coals away from the center. Everyone else agree?

are you in jacksonville? If so, Did you get it from the casbah, the sahara ?

As for your heat problem, if they are 40 mm coals cut them into halfs or 1/3rds.
