Re: nakhla or al fakher?
I agree that AF overflows with juices and as soon as any peice of coal or heat touches they give off a terrible smell and then burn the rest of the flavours causing all sorts of mess. While that is a nuisance, the flavour it self is great. al fakher smokes best with quick lite coals and as long as the coal dont touch the flavour the heat causes it to taste very very nice. But when it burns thats when issues come.
I actualy had 250grams of nakhla but it was horrible. I never NEVER smoke flavours on their own, i can not STAND flavours on their own, i always must mix... so maybe thats why i also dont like nakhla =/
