Re: **Help** First set-up..
with a bowl that small, one big pinch is good. liken it to the size of 3 peanut m&ms and it's just about right. press it down so it won't touch the foil, but don't pack it in really hard - you want it to be a little loose to get a good amt. of airflow. I'd also break the coal up into a couple pieces. If you get it started up with the whole coal but it starts to get really harsh, then just take off a piece and you'll be golden. Good luck!
