Default Shisha stiking to foil

I have a question mates. Often when im done smoking a bowl, i notice that some of the tobacco is stuck to the foil. So i was wondering, does it even matter? Because the smoke does not seem harsh. And if it is important to prevent this, how would i do so. because i do not overpack my bowls, in fact i usually keep them light.

Also when my coals go out, which usually takes about 30-40 min. I lift up the foil and only the top layer of tobacco is roasted. So when my coals are done should i just throw more straight on. Or should i mix up the bowl to get the fresh tobacco on top.

Im a bit new to to this so your help is apreciated.

Yeah if heat is right the shisha stuck to the foil acts as a heating implement and leaves the shisha below nice and warm and acts like a blanket to it. If you're shisha is around 1/4th of an inch below the foil with the right amount of heat you shouldn't have any stuck to the foil.

Yeah that's normal. Happens nearly every session and I rarely have a bad session.

At the start you have a lot of heat burning the top part of tobacco, so it has to happen. I guess the only way to avoid it would be to... Coat the bottom of the foil in Vegetable Oil?

It is normal (like a few little leaves). But if its a lot of tobacco and the smoke tastes burnt...Your burning the tobacco. What I do is be easy on the heat management and I take off the tobacco on the foil and put it back in the foil. Then, I light pat the tobacco down so it doesn't stick to the foil again.

i just pack my bowl on the less than full side so that its really close to the rim or barley over and i pat it down really gently just a slight couple taps to make sure the tobacco is even with the rim or a little under so i dont have to worry about it on the foil... It still smokes great and i still get good clouds

It is normal, unless there's like...half the tobacco in your bowl stuck on the foil. That would mean you overpacked.

I used to think I was burning the tobacco when it was stuck to the foil.

i put the foil wrapped really really tight over my bowl so its a foil screen (like a metal screen) over the shisha. it's really sturdy so if you were to tap the top of the foil it doesn't concave inward so when the coal is on top of the wrapped bowl, theres no contact between my shisha and the foil which allows me to put more coal and more smoke results and the shisha never sticks to the foil
