Re: Is there a trick . . .
ya i would cut up the coal, HH and HF dont like a huge amounts of heat, i ended up using 2 coco coals instead of my normal 3 for other stuff.
i found larger holes end up keeping the tobacco cooler since the heat can escape more easily (ya it can come it more easily but heat rises so it seems to me to work out)
make sure you have a good gap between the foil and tobacco so it wont burn from direct contact
over all i really dont like HH just because i dont think it smokes well but you have it so smoke it.
