Coals are fully lit and bright gold all around
There are no air leaks whatsoever (hose, hose port, base, valve, bowl)
Foil is well perforated and not touching the tobascco
It is closing the bowl
Tobacco is fresh and used it few days ago was OK, then for three days in a row was not.
My valve is working (closed when I pull and open when I blow air
