Default Could someone help me out

hey hookah pro,

i am very new to the hookah scene.
i recently purchased my own hookah cause i was tired of paying the money to sit at hookah lounges. I bought a mini mya nou nou hookah. It was great at the time since it was very cheap but now i hate it. Every single time i go to smoke, every bowl i pack is extremely harsh. I have tried almost everything, watched almost every beginner video and still can't pack a bowl without hating every minute of it. Could someone help me out and instruct me how to manage my heat better or something? Thanks guys

first of all, it's not the mya. Try packing less tobacco in the bowl and using less heat.Also try reynolds heavy duty foil. It's makes heat managment much easier.

Water level could be it, if your water isnt high enough, yeah its gonna be harsh. it sounds simple but many beginners overlook this important detail.

try using less heat, make sure your water level is right and make sure you clean your hookah. sometimes the residue build up with give you the burnt taste. hope this helps

Post pics and go over the following check list:

- Clean your hookah using soap and lemon
- don't overpack your bowl
- use two layers of foil
- make less holes and make them smaller
- use cold water with ice in the base
- try different type of coals

note that it is a matter of trial and error .. don't give up .. keep trying until you reach the perfect smoke that satisfy u.

thanks for all the responses.

i do have a standard mya bowl but i'm looking for another one.
i use al fakher, romman and al waha tobacco
i make sure the water level is correct because i ran into the problem earlier
i usually place the coals on the edge of the bowl and try to move them around after a little bit.

i've tried countless hole patterns, natural and quick light coals and two different hoses and still no luck. i guess i'll have to try a different bowl.
