Question Weak Flavor>>>>

I'm fairly new to the world of Hookah. It seems when I smoke my hookah the flavor of the smoke isn't as strong as when I smoke at the local hookah lounge. I checked everything and there aren't any leaks. What could do to make the flavor stronger??

try a bit more heat. or maybe your underpacking your bowl.You should have about an 1/8" between your foil and your tobacco.good luck.
Hey, what's up w/the desi murli? That "kush" sounds good. Did you have to call to get the flavors? Do you have Kamals #?

I will give that a try next tomorrow when I smoke. To get the flavors I just sent Kumal an email. The website is hookah1.com, click on contact us. He said there was a minimum of 1 Kilo/flavor but I asked if he could make an exception if I bought several flavors and there wasn't a problem. It really is great stuff.

my first time was terrible. i underpacked my bowl and used 1 coal and got no flavor. On top of that it was al amir which seems to be more light in taste from what i've read.

I have only been using one quick light coal. The smoke seems to be think enough, just the flavor doesn't really pick up.

depending what size bowl your using, you may want to try 2 qls.If that seems to be too much heat, you could stack/lean one on the other so only part of the second coal is touching your foil. Or break one in half and use 3 halves.What brand of tobacco are you using?

The last couple times I've smoked I have used Layalina tobacco. I think I will try the 3 halfs coal thing. I also think I may be underpacking the bowl because I have been afraid of overpacking.

Just pack a lil more if you think your underpacking. You should watch sambooka's "how to" vid to see if your doing it correctly.

Yup, use more heat, the flavor will come out way more. Also, don't put too much coals or else your gonna burn the tobacco

I would also recommend switching to natural coals, you can get better heat management and will not have a nasty chemical taste to your smoke.
