see when i pack it up in my phunnel i get one good round of coals, then an ok second round but it starts to taste a touch burned, not harsh like its burning just kinda charred taste, so idk

Im not sure why, but the flavor was amazing, more so than SB or anything. The clouds were crazy too, and i never ashed or moved the coals too, just both at opposite side of the bowl. 1 layer of HD foil, nothing special.
1-2 mm from the rim? isnt the vortex supposed to be packed up to the holes or is that just how people have started packing it since its so big. i do plan on getting one when i get my new rig soon (hopefully) looks like a good idea and figure i might as well try it out
