Re: no flavor
HH is a complicated brand because you must choose between a lot of smoke, or a good amount of flavor.
akhla coals are kinda bad imo. get some new coals (naturals, like ccn, ch, or sc) and some nakhla, af, starbuzz, etc.
i would reccomend using a vortex bowl with hh because they are both made by the same company and it usually goes better when i use one w/ HH.
and umm...killa_b? did you know that there's someone here already named "killer_b"? hahah
