Smooth and fresh, thick clouds, rich flavor. Very nice. I'm not a huge fan of how much attention the coals want, but it's definitely a good experience.
Once there's a video demonstration up of the other hole pattern, I'll give that one a try too.
Great. I know what you mean about paying attention to the coals but it's not really that bad. I use CH coals and they burn for a good amount of time before they require ashing and repositioning on the bowl.
