But then they use foil on their Glass bowl and it's like a dream, I would get one if it didn't leak so damn much.
I think this is why the new glass screens have cutaways on the sides to deal with the 1/2 coal burnout with the cut outs 2 coals is nice and "Just right" from what I have heard - MNH needs to inform us!
