[QUOTE=Dakins;287311]That's kinda crazy. Even the old CCNs last longer than 40 minutes. Some people have gotten over 1h15 of useful life out of the new cubes. Is there a lot of air circulating in the room where you are smoking? Like open windows and fans? Than can really kill your coals quickly. The coals will also burn out faster if they're not fully lit, which means the core has to be lit as well. I assume that your coals were properly lit, though.
A windcover definitely helps with keeping your coals alive.
Yes, window was open, kinda windy, no windcover... Might be the problem, my windcover is too small for medium funnel xD
