if your using a torch to light coconars thats part of the issue, a blow torch heats up the out sides to fast and doesnt penetrate into the inner coal, you need a coil burner or to use a gas stove

are you moving your coals?

also make sure you have a decent gap, some people are for the 1-2mm gap where as i am more of the 1/8-1/4 inch gap
