Try the following:

Pack more shisha

Break up your coal into 3-4 pieces and put around the edge of the bowl. You said this only gives you thin smoke? Okay, do that and put a wind cover or foil hood over the bowl. (Take a piece of foil and rip the center of it, then put loosely over the bowl. This will help with even heating.)

Try taking the hose out and sucking from the stem, to see if it is the hose or not.

Let me know what happens.


Yes I'll give those a try thanks man. I feel rho that when I pack it more there isn't that fingertip space inbetween and it just burns even more....



I barley leave any space between the foil and shisha.
Also, if you pack it more it will require less coals. So start off with a couple pieces around the very edge of the bowl, add the foil hood, smoke for a minute or 2. If still not enough smoke add another piece and repeat as necessary.

get some strong flavoured tobacco like laylina watermelon and just pull through the pipe with no coals on it if it just tastes like dirty hookah then clean that shit if you can taste some watermelon youre doing it right if you still taste nothing with the coals on it then i guess you and hookahs dont go well together

ok man no one has said this and i usually do it but take some thick tooth picks and put them through the bowl holes so they come through the shisha too....this will give it a direct flow and it usually works great for flavor...also try some hard flavors like passion flavor...i have layalinas and that shit is strong...so yea man give it a try

He's pretty right there.

El Hennawy has FULL OUT flavour on EVERY tabak.

Try doing 1 big hole in the middle, thats how the.. (insert forgotten nationality here) smoke, one coal needed, not much smoke, but flavourful as hell!

just grab some kashmir and load that up!!

I would try filling the bowl up really good with a hole pattern like u normally do then use small chunks of whatever coal you use and add small pieces at a time.. you wont "burn it" just because the shisha is stuck to the foil, doesnt mean you're burning it.

try it out putting little pieces on at a time...

also, kashmir is a really strong flavor... try it. if you cant taste that ur in trouble!

Try a different bowl. A deeper one. Those shallow bowls can get tricky. They need less direct heat from the coal, so keeping the coal on the very edge, with a wind cover or foil hood should work.

NoPeace...

Take pictures of your bowl unpacked, then packed, put the foil on your bowl take a picture before you poke holes, make sure you get the foil tight on the bowl..


Make a video for us or something dude, we need pictures, if you have a webcam get on stickam or something.

We need something to visualize what your doing.
Try making a hose or go buy a cheap ass hose or borrow a friends hose.

Your hose could be bad man.

Yeah, lets get the DC crew to drive over to NoPeace's house and see what the problem is. I bet between Camel, Spoon, and myself we could get it smoking good in no time at all.

Yep, you DC guys need to get together with him and see what is up. That's the easiest path to getting him on track. Subtle things make all the difference. Stick with the Three Kings, those are the best I have had to date.
Watch the water level, get the shisha close but not touching the foil. Starbuzz is my personal favorite for flavor and Tangiers is a really close second. If it did not hit me so hard on the buzz it would be my favorite actually.
I wish there were some washed versions he had because I can make that shit smoke great... I just can't find my ass with both hands after 10 minutes ohmy.gif
The locals will get you going though bro. Spoolin knows what he is doing smile.gif

I had the same troubles as you did when I first used my hookah. It ended up being the bowl. I have a really shallow bowl as well, so what I have to do sometimes is pack it enough so that the top bit of hookah is actually touching the screen/foil. While this is not ideal, it does get plenty of smoke and flavor. It just tends to last a bit shorter.

Reading this thread is breaking my heart. NoPeace is trying sooo hard to just have a nice relaxing smoke and this is being nothing but a pain in the balls. If I wasn't such a poor college student I would buy you a new setup.

so let me do a run down of what ppl have told me.
pack lightly and to the top
make sure that you can blow through the bowl from the bottom (courtesy of grim)
aluminum foil, shiny side down stretch tight over
use ONE coal and break into 2 pieces ( i dont think its possible to break a 33mm into 4)
play on edges of bowls
let sit for 5 minutes before actually trying to hit so that it heats up
sit back and pray to god that there is flavor!!!

Why let it sit? :S
When you hit it heats it up because it draws heat.
