Re: How long does it take for a phunnel to get started?
I use a small funnel
3 coals for about 5mins, the smoking usually starts up within the first minute. 2 coals for the long run then add the third one again when they start to die down.
2 + windcover for about 4-5min then remove the wind cover till towards the end of the coals life.
This has worked with tangiers, starbuzz, and nakhla for me.
