Re: Coals, ice and other Newbie questions
the main variable in the coal equation is the size of your bowl. Bigger bowl = more coals. In the end it really comes down to trial and error on this, because three coals of one brand can provide a very different level of heat than three coals of another brand.
I have tried ice in the bowl and i can't really say i hav enoticed too much of a difference, just use the coldest water your tap can provide, or keep a jug in the fridge and you should be golden.
