Re: First try at tangiers- very dry smoke
Canary Golden Coals are the best for Tangiers, but most people don't use 'em. I would use 3 and then add on whenever they got half their size. Perfect.
Exoticas, well, I don't use them at all. But if you were, cut a log into four pieces and just use two pieces until an hour or so.
With quick lights, cut two coals in half and use three on the bowl.
