Re: Tips for a new smoker
Sweet! I love Akhla's and have used them extensively. Here is what you do. Light them from the bottom and run the lighter/torch all over the bottom for a second even after it catches and smokes. Then after it gets done smoking all over you have to blow on the coal and make it cherry red, at that time you will see where you need to apply more heat because it wont be red it will be black still. Run your lighter/torch on those areas for a couple of seconds and then immediately blow on the coal and watch it turn cherry red all over. when its even its ready to put on the bowl.
The greatest obstacle to discovery isn't ignorance, but the illusion of knowledge
