Default Distance between colas foil and tabaco.

Im still not 100% sure that I have the packing of the tabaco down.
I have seen it being done at diffirent clubs and locations and each place does it diffirent.
Some really pack it in some dont like in the Videos I have seen of Hookah Pro.

My question is how much gap do you leave between the tabaco and the foil.

Asuming you follow the DIrections in the Videos. Where the tabaco is just level with the top of the cup. Then what happens is when you light up.
The top layer stiks to the foil and burns.
Maybe there is some ammount of gap to be left between the foil and the tabaco.

What am I doing wrong if every time after a smoke. The top layer of tabaco is black and burnt and the tabaco at the lower levels is pretty much unsmoked ?

Right now what I do is after some time lift the foil. Throw away the burnt tabaco and move the unburnt tabaco arround but this cant be right way.

Any help appricated.

I smoke a lot of romman, and i rarely fill my bowl to the top. I usually fill it about 75% of the way there, leaving an airgap inbetween the hookah and the tobacco. Very rarely if ever does it get harsh, and my tobacco is completely spent after it dies.

Leave like 1/4 inch between the shisha and foil. You don't want to burn your shisha. If one isn't enough try two pieces, and make sure you use the heavy duty stuff. I have found that that works much better. Happy smoking.

Based on the responses. I see people haven't come to a common concesus on this here either.
But thanks. I will try leaving a gap and see how it goes.

I pack it right up to the rim, and then gently dab it. I have done this for 5 years and I make heads at a local hookah bar called The Spot. I get 2 or 3 bowls returned in a matter of 3 days. Figure we do about 300 bowls a night. There is no right or wrong way, as long as you break up the tobacco as you put it in. Regardless, it's going to burn on the foil and it all will eventually get harsh. When I pack Nakhla 2Apple, I make a mound of it, about 3/4 of an inch, OVER the rim, then gently put foil over it. It STILL hits like a champ and lasts much longer than a normal bowl. You just need to have the proper touch

honestly the reason no one can some to one answer is because everyone likes and expects differant things from hookah. some of my friends take a tiny hit and say its harsh while i will puff away and be fine. some people here put on 1.5-2 times the coals as i do with the exact same bowl and shisha but i get burnt to all hell if i put that much on.

in general you will have less issues if you leave a gap, but with quick lights there is a gap under them so they dont touch the foil (i think that helps but im not to sure).

personally ive just gone to the phunnel cause it requires less fluffing and making sure you can pull well through it and all. and just pack it to or just over the center hole
