Is it still ok to have some black colouring on the coal? Also is 2 Cocobricos enough for this type of bowl?
Or would you use 3? Struggling at the moment without a windcover, I bought a new KM last week but my old windcover doesn't fit it.
2 is probably enough but as the coals get smaller your going to have to add a 3rd
they need to be completely ashed over or you will taste them and get a major headache
