Re: Struggling with coconara's
As biker said, coco's do need to be rotated (turned) fairly often. I usually turn mine every 4 or 5 minutes, though I may overdo it. It works for me. Just from sitting against the cooler foil or screen they will darken on the bottom as heat is leached from them, so rotating them sets one of the hotter sides against the foil and allows them to burn more evenly as well as keeping the heat up. I like to use my windscreen initially to get the bowl warmed up but once that is accomplished I take it off and really haven't had any problems with them loosing heat. Smoke happy.
