Re: smiley plum?
Yeah, plum is hard to get spot on. After three sets of coals, I pulled back the foil and lo and behold, the stuff looked practically intact. WTF. I pulled out any blackened bits, put Naklah lemon in the bottom of the phunnel and piled the plum back on top. Piled it up higher than the rim. This is now working great. Using three jap style coals. Lemon somehow brings the plum flav out and the added zing of lemon complements . This is a phenomenal smoke. The extra nicotine from the Naklah comes on gently, but man, it's still there bigtime. I am into my second of coals with this new arrangement, and the smoke is thick, intensely flavored, with not a tack in the throat.
