Default Always burning my shisha

I've been struggling with this for a long time and can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. I always burn my shisha, whether quickly or after smoking for a while.

I've tried fewer coals, various mods that I've seen, different hookahs, but I dont know what to do.

my typical setup now is a KM copper pearl with a chinese phunnel bowl, reynolds aluminum foil, and 2 or 3 exotica or ******* hookah coals.

if anyone has any suggestions, that would be awesome, I'm tired of always emptying shisha ash out of my bows at the end. Thanks!

If it is regular reynolds foil and not heavy duty, I'd double it up.

foil maybe and how hard are you pulling when you inhale. i packed up a hookah the same i always do and it was smoking great then another friend came over who is a big guy and inhales a lot and hard when he smokes (mostly just from his size) and the bowl started to burn when he was smoking, and the coals were about 1/2 through.

At the end of a session it is normal to have burned shisha in ur bowl. Till u have flavorfull and not harsh sessions, do not bother with burned shisha at the end, thats the way it should be If u burn ur shisha too fast, or ur smoke is harsh, than try to use less coal, or more layers of foil

Cut your coal into sixths, use three sixths spread over the bowl in a triangular formation. The more evenly you distribute your heat, the better your session will be. Have new coals at the ready as you smoke through your current ones, or prepare for your session early. I dont use Exoticas as much as I used to because the vendor I usually order from (HC) doesnt carry them anymore. I like their coconut coals though, the Al Awa El ones, not the ******* ones.
