Re: Starbuzz smokers - questions
I've been smoking the stuff since before you could buy it.
I posted a review long ago, elsewhere, basically it was a scientific experiment.... I "torture tested" SB.
At high heat, bowls ran well up until around 45-50 minutes.... but until then, I couldnt scorch it unless I overpacked.
The thing with SB is that "less is more" seems to be the key. Use the tobacco sparingly and fleck in the the tobacco nice and loose into the bowl.... then work the distribution around with a toothpick.
As for coals. I break a 33mm into 4 pieces and use 3 pieces to kick things off... I arrange them in the 10....2... and 6 o'clock positions.
