Quicklights are usually hard to manage.

Use natural coals, light them first on the stove, then when they are fully cooked (red all around, cracked and red from the inside) break them into little pieces either by tapping them with the tong, or by a hammer.

Put little pieces of coal, pieces should be as little as a bean. put them on the edge of the bowl, not the center, keep rotating them every five minutes and remove the burnt out ones

Thanks for your advice! I live in London, and its very difficult to use natural coals. It leaves a mess, and difficult to use with our type of stove. Plus, it takes about 10 mins to light up with our stove!

Try getting a high rated hot plate.. spend the little extra cash and get a nice one.. the type you can heat some coals and house with. :P
Naw, just find a nice mid-range hot plate. It came in handy when I moved to JP and had no stove.

Nakhla needs stable heat and a bit more than normal tobacco (an normally more than QL's can offer steadily). If you must use QL's get a windcover - you'll have to be Johnny-on-the-spot with the management but it will work.

As to the bowl pack, I overpack Nakhla (just over the rim of the bowl) and tamp it down flat. Make sure to move the coals OFTEN and at the first hint of burnt - REMOVE the windcover and/or a coal. It's doable, but make take practice

Good Luck!.

and most importantly, break the coals into little pieces. Big coals burn tobacco fast

I use two natural coals on my nakhla and it works great, double foil and just a couple of holes. putting more coals(even if smaller) or poking more holes or using just a layer of foil ruins it for me, harsh smoke and all that
