yea i made sure everything was perfect. loosened up the tobacco really well and used a little rod to make sure there was a path from the holes in the bowl to the holes on the foil. then i blew through the bottom to make sure.

Your Tobacco could be dry. Your Hookah could be leaking. You might not have enough coals on. Your Hookah Might be dirty. You might not have enough water in base.

Check all the following and smoke will be a lot better.

Is the tobacco dry? I recently got Romman peach and melon and they were both dry compared to the Starbuzz flavors. Very thin smoke.

Al-waha burns easier than other brands in my experience. It tends to be a little more temperamental when you add heat to it. Other brands are more tolerant to heat so adding coal is a relatively common fail-safe. Try using a different brand, I'm sure your smoke would be a lot better. I tend to like wetter brands because they are easier to manage.

tobacco definitely wasn't dry. My friend has the starbuzz, so i really don't have a choice right now. It's ok though, I'm happy with the results right now

What kind of coals are you using?

I used to get the same problem, thin smoke and bad flavor because of quicklites. Not simply because they were quicklites, but because I just slapped them on the bowl when they stopped sparking. So I guess i'm asking if you let the coal completely ash over before throwing it on.

You'll have to blow off or scrape off the silver covering otherwise it'll add a funky taste.

after they are all lit up blow them outside (while holding them with tongs) and blow the silver lining off. but yeah, your getting it better. in less then a month you will have it down
