How to Light Up Shisha Charcoal?

The best investment you can make when using natural charcoals is an electric hotplate. The hookah bowl size will determine how much coal will need to be used, as well as the size of the foil and the screen above it. In order for the heat to be evenly distributed across the shisha mix, the coal should be positioned on the foil or the HMD.

  1. Put 2 to 3 pieces (the ideal number of coals for most bowls) of coal should be placed on an electric burner or hot plate using tongs. Smaller bowls can be made with just 2 pieces, while larger ones typically operate best with 3, or 4 if they will fit without hanging over the sides. The most important thing is for the coals to sit as evenly distributed around the bowl’s perimeter as possible.
  2. Allow about 3 to 4 minutes for the natural coals to heat up on the highest heat level, then flip them using the hookah tongs to achieve even lighting on both sides. Needless to say, your fingers should be nowhere near the burning coals. 
  3. Leave the coals to heat for another 3 to 4 minutes on the opposite side.
  4. Once the coals are red-hot on both sides, transfer them carefully to the HMD or the foil over the bowl. Perform all of this with tongs, and don’t forget to shut off the coal burner once you have completed using it.
