Default Packin The Bowl Incorrectly?

My roommate and I have been smoking out of a 19' hookah for a while and im noticing when I clean my bowls out that the top of the shisha is black and burned I guess you could say and there is a lot of good shisha still at the bottom of the bowl. We use one hose, fill the base with water and ice and occassionaly use a windcover. We always smoke until the tobacco gets too harsh, but we are always moving the coal around and purging when necessary. I dont know why we are wasting shisha. Are we packing it too much or high? We only use one coal so I dont knw if thats a problem. We also use a medium sized bowl. Any suggestions?

It will do that a little the shisha cooks from top to bottom, i just put a little less in and like aaron said make sure your foil doesnt touch

leave a little room between the foil and the shisha cuz it sounds like ur burning it espeacilly since ur using one coal its odd that it gets harsh at all.

watch this and see if it helps u out. (skip to about 3:30)

And manage the heat- cook at a lower temp, bake not saute.

bloop, i dont know of anyone right now, but I'll show you a bowl at the end of my net vid.

Usually the tobacco comes out as a crusty yet slightly docile peice of tobacco

ya leave some gap, you may want to try to break the coal in half to spread the heat out better

you will always have some good shisha in the bottom and some totally charged stuff on top, but it should never end the session because it is harsh, the flavor and smoke should die out
