Default Re: Nakhla melon burning?

i leave a good space (1/8 inch at least, probably closer to 3/16) under my foil (2 layers of reg foil).

i put 3 coals on my mod bowl with a wind cover for a few mins to warm up then just move them w/o flipping for the first move or 2

and as to the DA, if you dont mix it up well or dont get a good pack on it you can get bad tastes (i found for me nakhla likes a bit of tamping when i pack it and with the gap theres no issues)
