Default Coals on your vortex bowl..

Hey guys I was wondering on how you use your coals on your vortex bowl, do you use a full one in the middle or do you split it in half and put a half on each side?... thanks

Depending on the coals used, I usually use two-three, around the edges, usually three partially hanging off. As the bowl continues to cook I move them a little bit inward.

Two coconut coals (CH) on the outside of the bowl across from each other. Works beautifully for me.

Depends on the shisha, but for the most part you place them generally as you would on any other bowl.

I use the Exotica coals, and I use three of them if my wife is smoking with me...two if it is just me...then about every 10-15 I rotate them around the bowl. Now, quick lites, I use 1-3 depends. I have snapped mine in two's as well. What ever works for you.

I use two coals on the Vortex. Unless I'm using 40m, then I'll break it into two pieces.
