Default Tangiers smoking issues (need help)

Hey guys, I've recently had some problems with packing Tangiers and wondered if anybody can give me specific tips for packing and setup.

I currently smoke out of a KM trimetal halzone with a nuhose, a quality* phunnel bowl, and Kaloud lotus. When I first got the bowl, it smoked flawlessly, but it randomly started to act weird. I have tried packing it tightly, loosely, and put 3 natural coals (I've used Charcoblaze as well), and it is harsh in the beginning of the smoke and has a super intense flavor to a point of borderline harshness during the smoke, even if I take a coal off (others have said it is harsh for them but I can tolerate it since I smoke alot). I have tried using different coals and different acclimation methods to fix the issue, but it still has harshness.

Any tips on how to fix the issue with the packing method or heat management so it is not harsh for the whole smoke session?

On that bowl just pack it tight and wrap it tight and use two coals and a windcover, wait until it's hot before you take a pull

Ok Turbo, first.... Your bowl is from a banned vendor and cant be mentioned on this forum, so EDIT your post before a mod sees it and removes it and sends you a warning pm.

Next, your bowl is not " randomly acting weird". Nor is your pipe, hose, tobacco etc..
It's your heat management. (Also, no need to "acclimate" the tobacco, but we'll not go i to that now. Just trust me. Ive been smoking Tang since its enception).

DENSE pack the tang in the bowl so its below both the rim of the bowl and the spire. Foil it with HD foil, drum tite with an indiscriminate amount of tooth picked sized holes in any configuration you find pleasing. Add two fully lit ( cherry red ) coconut coals. Place at the twelve oclock and six oclock postions on the bowl. Wait for the "sizzle" to abate. Move the coals to the three iclock and nine oclock positions, wait for the sizzle to subside. Begin smoking.

If you find this is still too hot. Remove one coal and add a wind cover.

Finally, you could have found all of this info for yourself in the Tangiers Mega Thread, which is where this post belongs.

Hope this helps. Best of luck.
