Default Re: Moving coals around?

I rotate my coals out of habit.. regardless of which type I'm using.

I ash them periodically. For example, I notice a pronounced reduction in heat with exoticas when the layer of ash gets thick.

Also, rotate and ash them because you don't want too much ash dropping through the holes in the foil. That'll mess with your flavor and it'll end up tasting like crap until you have to take the bowl off and blow it out.

Finally, I do it to keep the heat even and burn the tobacco equally all the way around to keep the flavor at its best throughout the session.
I don't own anything cos you guys bought everything!
