Re: 2 questions for a new guy.
Nah, its a ceramic based thing. Anyways it would be on the outside edge, just to hang down over the outside of the bowls edges to prevent slippage and the ever daunting threat of a shatter. There would be no air pulling through it, and the heat generated by the coals wouldn't be nearly enough to do anything to the putty stuff. And in reality its not really a putty, I just can't think of the best way to describe it. Oh well.
Anyways, chances are i'm going to be picking up a vortex or an alien instead anyways, once i cancel this order.
Can anyone compare these two and give some advice as to which one to get? Keeping in mind I'm a college student with little cash, and the fact that the vortex is half the price.
