Problem with coals
Hey guys im brand new to natural coals and everyone talks good about CH Natys so i decided to pick up a box of em. So i bought a extra burner from walgreens that is just a coil burner since i have gas burners. I heat up the burner and set the coals down wait until they are red hot and ashed all around. By the time i can get from the kitchen to my bowl and set the coals down they already begin to turn black in spots, mostly on the bottom. Im not saying CH coals are bad, i just dont know what im doing wrong because they arent burning right. If anyone out there has a tip that would be great. I just got my 34" KM Green Pear and i love smoking it, KM has exceeded my expectations but this coal problem is no fun. Thanks in advance.
