Re: How many coals?
On the vortex two is enough and you rotate them around every 10 minutes or so. On my Med. Tangiers Phunnel bowl I use three. After the first set of coals are spent I use one split in half on the vortex and two split in half on the phunnel. That's usually takes me to the end of the bowl or to where I'm done smoking. This is using ******* QL's.
