true, I have an on the rocks and putting coal on the charcoal tray doesn't really add a noticeable amount of melt to the ice. another thing about it is as scoop said, the browning, which makes an odd brown condensation mark on it, but if you wipe it off with water after your session it comes off, probably a by product of a fizzing coal on the tray from the condensation.
