Re: how long are you supposed to wait after you put the charcoals on?
at the beginning it would be harsh either due to burning tobacco or the coals not being fully lit. if your using a QL give it 1-2 minutes after you lit it up for it to get rid of any taste it will have before you put it on your bowl. if its burning by the tobacco sticking to the foil then pack a little bit less ofcourse. the tobacco at the end well all depends on the look. it can be all black and burned or it can be covered in ash or it can be both. breaking your coals into pieces is not always needed but it helps because if there is a little too much heat you can take som off.
