Re: Problem with coals
Its nothing to worry about. I've been using Johns CH Naturals for quite a long time now, once they're red hot, coconut coals will turn black and maintain a very low heat unless air is passing over them. Turn the red hot side down on the bowl, blow over the top a bit to get the rest of the coal heated back up and start smoking.
About 20 minutes into the bowl, ash off the coals, flip em over red side down, and repeat.
