I don't know if that will actually make it better for your palette but I hope it does. Like I said, everyone has different tastes.
Same here. I use three for the first five minutes to get it up to temp, then take the 3rd coal off until they've died over half way then I toss it back up there. Overheating HH, even by a little, not only kills the flavor but can harsh it quickly.
