Re: i need a quick solution
What type/brand coals are you using?
How many coals are you using?
Are you placing them on the outside edge?
And are you using a windcover?
Are you moving the coals every 5-10 mins?
What Brand of tobacco are you using?
Are you under/overpacking?
Edit - if your using SB, you need to watch the heat like a hawk. SB has heat issues, I even burn it occussianly.
Use 1 to 1.5 pieces of coal, on the outside edge, moving it ever 5-10 mins. If not getting enough smoke/taste, cover w/ a windcover to 5-10 min and try. This is one major complaint I have w/ SB.... too picky w/ the heat!
