Default Not getting much smoke.

I was wondering if anyone could help me.

About a month ago I bought a begginers hookah package from smokinghookah.com ( http://http://www.smoking-hookah.com/product/385001.asp ) and the shisha it came with wasnt very good (Al sultan) and didnt give me very much smoke without getting harsh.

Yesterday I got a can of Starbuzz white peach. I used two quater pieces of Exotica coal, and I was getting alright smoke, so I tried adding another quarter piece to get those huge clouds i have seen, but the smoke started to get harsh.

Any Idea what I can do to get bigger clouds??

make sure your sheesha is loosely packed and that it doesn't touch your foil. three rings of small holes (i use a toothpick) is all you need. If you get the volume of smoke you want but it's a bit harsh, purge the smoke from your chamber.....then try it.

Also, check your water level. If the smoke doesn't have enough room to accumulate it wont smoke well.

Take the usual steps to set up your hookah. You dont NEED millions of holes in the foil but you do need some! Water level should be an inch above the stem. Diffusers in my experience help. 3 coals to get started, 2 to maintain the heat, and usually when i want to show off i stick 3 coals on the foil and puff once or twice before it gets harsh (then i take it off). Getting a "name brand" hookah would help you. Something like a KM or a Syrian would be good. A bigger hose would help you as well. AF, starbuzz, and tangiers shisha are tobaccoes that I know will produce more smoke than others. Then its all heat management from then on out.

Keep your base as cold as possible. Put ice in the base with the water. This will allow the smoke to cool down more before getting to your lungs. If it gets cooled down more in the base, it can be hotter in the bowl.

There's a video on how to fix harsh smoke by our own Sambooka! http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=2zvN1cL1uik

When you prepare ure bowl just sprinkle the shisha. . .dont pack it . .keep your charcoal to the edge of teh bowl, and put the tin foil with the shiny side facing the shisha to relfect heat towards the inside, and make sure you pipe goes hlf an inch into the water if our hookah is small or over one inch if you hookah is the large kind. Try adding a bit of milk in the water to thicken your smoke. IF all thsi doesn't work . .check your hookah fo leaks.
