Default what setups for bowl

Hello,
i just want to know what setup you guys are using for your bowls.
Or do you just put the tobacco in the bowl and tense the foil over it ^^
Myself using a "Einlochkopf Teelichtmethode" for my Phunnel and a Chos' Simple China (CSC) for my Chinahead.
The first Setup is specialy made for "one hole bowls" and it is like this:




(Pictures from set-it-up.net)

The so called CSC Setup is made for "more holes bowls" or specially for the Chinahead wich is a standard bowl in germany^^ (yeah my perfect english ^^)
I think picture says more than words so:



And you put 2 Coals (in my case cocobricos) at the border.
(pictures from shisha-forum.de by Chos)

I hope you understand what i am trying to ask/say
And maybe you got some american Setups for me :>

// Sorry for my bad english ^^

looks like a lot of work, but it probably replaces the need for a windcover....as the bowl is very well insulated and the warm air is very well circulated

Yea but you have to know that good tobacco is rare in germany ^^
We can just import from USA or Dubai etc. to get wet tobacco like Al Fakher, Starbuzz, Fantasia, etc cause germany got some crazy "pipe tobacco" rules that say that pipe tobacco will only got a humidity of 5% or less..
And so i try to do not so much tobacco in my bowl ^^
And also with this setup you can smoke a long time because the tobacco dont burn down so quick and it just vaporizes ^^
Can someone give me a feedback that he or she understand my english :S i give my best

seems a little much. i use a phunnle to and haven't had the need to set it up any different since it lasts a good amount of time and doesn't burn. i use a make shift mod and just pull the foil tight like a drum skin.

also for your mod. i tried using a tea candle once and i felt it made the shisha taste candle flavor. i was smoking apple and it seemed more like wax apple.
i use an metal alcohol cap. its thicker metal and not as wide. just remember to take out the foam piece in the cap if your going to try it.

I have seen a similar setup before. I have heard it is very effective and does not allow the tobacco to burn. I may have to try it but I might try a larger ring to create the second layer.
