Re: Help, Fast!
Heat management is just something you learn to do. When I smoke af for example in my small phunnel or vortex I'll put 3 cronic hookah coals on the edge in a triangle pattern and use a wind cover to get it going. Depending how moist it is I sometimes put 4 coals on the edges and let it warm up for about 10 minutes before first pull. After about 10 minutes I remove one coal and put the 3 in a trangle pattern and take a few pulls.
I find that with the coals towards the edge and flipping them ever 15 minutes tends to work for me when it come to af. Like I said this is me and how I pack my bowls. Try 4 coals to start with a wind cover then after warm up take a coal off, flip the other 3 and put them towards the edge and slide on the wind cover.
