Re: Getting more of a smoke test than flavour
This has happened to me a couple times. When I was using a phunnel, I didn't have enough heat and I didn't pack enough in so the tobacco wasn't releasing any flavor at all. The other was when in my impatience, I failed to let my coals ash over fully before putting them on the bowl. The coal taste was so strong that I gagged uncontrollably for a second. I don't put my coals on prematurely anymore...
