+1 to no touching for all the same reasons.

I pack my nakhla exactly the same way ********** showed in his video. Overpacked, and then holes made with a toothpick. The holes put all the way through the shisha to the bottom. Never had a problem with burning the shisha

um yeah i smoke cigs, for a long time now.. and if my shisha burns i can taste it.. its horrible.. soo ya thats wrong.. it shouldnt touch cause the foil is extremely hot, too hot for shisha to "bake" and instead of baking properly it burns and makes a crappy session

It all depends on how much heat you put on it. The safer bet was to pack it so that it doesnt touch the foil, but if you have a problem with burning packing a full bowl just remove some of the heat. Disperse the heat evenly throughout the entire bowl. Take off some coals, and it really depends on what coals you use. Do what I do and rotate the coals, one coal on, then two coals on, repeat.

As far as im concerned, there is a right way to pack a bowl and there is a wrong way. I think that you need to pack the shisha just below the tin foil so its not touching

Cigs are basically smoking tobacco that is constantly burning. I would think you would have less of a sensitivity to tasting burning tobacco.

i don't pack to the foil cuz that's just what i have always done. however most hookah bars will super over pack the bowls and have great flavor, no harshness. last time i tried to over pack.. i failed.

I never over pack. The tobacco burns right to the foil, it blocks the holes and makes everything taste like ash.

here is a little science behind this. the coals burn anywhere from 450-500 degrees Celsius. Tobacco burns at around 500-600 degrees Celsius. The molasses that the tobacco is coated in burns at around 290 degrees Celsius (the boiling point for glycerin). If you have tobacco touching the foil, then it will burn faster than the tobacco not touching the foil, simple as that.

I haven't ever had a problem with a proper harsh smoke, sometimes i cant smoke AF in a phunnel but thats cos its being gay, and it works fine in a clay bowl

It all depends on the shisha, i've heard HH can b a bi**h tho and too much heat and you will feel the full effect
