Default Hot Smoke

Ok so I know this has been on before, but this is the first time in a long while that this has happened. So I was smokeing some AF Watermelon with two quarter pieces of exotica coals on HD foil on my vortex bowl. The shisha was sprinkled in to just below the holes. The smoke was hot and the bowl didn't last long before it started to burn. Now to me I think it was to much heat and or not enough shisha for the amount of heat that I had. Just wanted to see if you folks are thinking the same thing. Thanks.

Another question is how wet was the shisha?

I'd say pack it a little bit thicker to get more juice in there, the vortex can only preserve whatever moisture is in there.

i've done the exact same thing w/ the exact same setup
- af watermelon, vortex bowl and exoticas

i can get it to smoke good for about 15 mins then after that it just gets tooooo rough. my solution to that problem = give up on AF, its not the same anymore...

do that setup w/ HH or HF shisha and its goooood to go w/ no problemo

I agree 100%. I can't handle AF, always gets harsh in a few minutes after good smoke.

Sounds like it was the coals.

Try cutting them even smaller.

Good to know so many HPers are disappointed with AF. Helps this newbie narrow down the 'what to buy' field.
