Re: Smoking from a clay bowl?
i only smoke out of standard bowls (well its a mod bowl but same difference IMHO). i leave a 1/8-1/4 gap below the foil (HD foil) and use 2-3 cocos of CH coals on my mod bowl (used the same about when i used my thicker egyptian)
are you moving your coals?
also try more holes (i put about 37 holes on my mod, a ring of 16 on the out side, then 12, then 8, then 1 in the center, no bigger than the full thickness of a toothpick)
