Re: Phunnel vs Vortex! You decide!
I've always had more luck with the vortex. It's a much more forgiving bowl unless you're smoking Fantasia or something equally drippy. No matter how tight I pull the foil over the phunnel, after awhile the weight of the coals and the force of the air being drawn through it will inevitably pull the foil down way too close to the hole, making the pull stupidly hard.
