Default AF and coconara advice

Well I got some coco's the other day and I packed a vortex bowl like I always do with af. I pack it nice and loose and make sure that it's about 2 or 3 mm below the rim.

Now when I use my quick lights I have laying around like 3 kings or golden I have no problem with 2 coals on either side. I get good clouds and good taste. I never burn the shisha. Now the question is that with the cocos it seems that they output a little more heat because I used 2 on the edge of the vortex and burned the shisha. Maybe it was just a fluke because I have never burnt a bowl before but I was wondering how you guys manage your heat with cocos cause I see in alot of videos guys using 3 cocos and no burning.

Btw bowl set up is a vortex with af packed loose with stems removed. I use 2 sheets of reynolds hd with a 3 ring hole pattern. Holes are small In size because I use a thumb tack if not a needle. Thanks guys

eh, use one coal if one coal works for you, im not sure how large you vortex is, to my knowledge there were 2 sizes. coconaras burn pretty hot, so if 2 coals is to much try one. i use 3 on a small tangiers and i put them right at the rim, on egyptian I use 2...

I use a lot of coals, 2 is my minimum when smoking on an Egyptian or funnel. I have never burned AF with a high ammount of coals, did it get harsh? AF is pretty juicy and should be able to take more heat than other flavors.

When I use my vortex (now a medium phunnel mostly ) I always used 3 coconaras / AF Coconut coals & it never got too hot for me.
Granted, two CCN work well too... But three is much more smoke. Pack it tighter
