If anyone has noticed something to similar to this, or has any really good foil suggestions as far as store-bought goes, please let me know.
I always use run of mill foil when it's on sale and I never have problems with sore throats, headaches or such. Those things are almost always a result of using bad coals or inhaling way too aggressively. Smoke slowly and wait a at least 30 seconds between drawls. Don't worry about huge clouds but stay focused on the ritual and taste.
