Well keep in mind if your overpacking it, you need less heat so whats why people burn their shit. Pack it tight in the bowl a little under the rim and push the foil down with ur palm to make sure its tight. then just poke a decent amount of holes. 3 goldens and u should be fine, if it doesnt taste good you didnt acclimate it right. packing is too overstressed by some people.
