Default Re: Very bad taste/no taste

the myas (rough brass inside) get a horrid horrid taste, acidic, bitter, rank, horrid flavor that over powers everything. kinda stings almost. it takes a good washing to get it out. i would suggest scrubbing the crap out with dawn, good rinse, then a good cleaning with lemon juice or better yet vinegar. good rinse again. that might help part

other things are make sure the tobacco is well mixed up, packed loosely with a gap, make sure the coals are fully lit (a coal not fully lit will taste like crap)
