I use two coconara's, a phunnel and a QT with double normal foil and a windcover. Is it just too much heat? I take off the coal but they are so small by then that one isn't enough but the bowl itself is harsh, I take it out and puff it but its still harsh, maybe by then I burned the tobacco? Anyways sorry for the massive change of topic and would appreciate any tips.
What size phunnel are you using? When I use coconara's instead of Golden Canaries I cut them in halves. It helps with the heat management. On a large phunnel bowl I can use 3-4 halves with a wind cover once they die down. It's not that you burned the tobacco. In a small phunnel if packed right and if not scorched with to much coal it can easily last 4 hours.
