I have never messed up a bowl of starbuzz of hh... Didnt even know that was possible

SB and HH are pretty easy to burn, they take a lot less heat.

with nakhla once i get it warmed up and move the coals 3 times in the first 15 mins i usually can get away with moving them 1-2 times for the rest of the 1:20 session. the leaf is what you want the stems (supposedly) make it harder to have consistent heat. HH is the shredded pipe tobacco cut and SB is so saturated it is about 2 stems above preserves in the consistency department (i smoke SB some times but honestly it is very saturated).
