I don't know how it's with AF as I haven't smoked it. But with Nahkla you don't really need any care. Just load, add coal and you are good to go.

You should just add the coals on the corners of the bowl, so that a half of the coal would be outside of the bowl.
Anyway, found some videos on YouTube:
