Default Re: Help Please!

if your getting harsh smoke, your not cooking your tobacco, your burning it

that mya bowl is rough to heat manage, you get a very deep carbon line on it, deeper than any other bowl i have ever seen
the tobacco needs to be packed below that line, if you do not have the line yet, you need to leave a large gap between the tobacco and the foil, its about two and a half times the gap of most other bowls.
for most tobaccos you should put 3 fully lit coals on and simply let them sit there for 5 minutes without you smoking it
after 5 minutes pass take a coal off and rotate the remaining two
the coals should be hanging off the edge of the mya bowl
if you do not get smoke fairly quickly with this method you may have to wait up to 10 minutes before smoking as the tobacco may be cooking slow since it is so far from the foil
if this fails get a vortex, its easy to heat manage
a phunnel is great but a challenge especially a large one
