Small funnel with starbuzz I use 3 for like the first minute to warm things up then I remove one for the long run. I put the third one back on when the coals start to die off.
Once they die off I just add 2 fresh ones.

This is with CHQL's, they're awesome but they don't last very long

Vortex, small phunnel, and egyptian: 3 CH Nats or QLs. I position them evenly apart along the edge, and pull them in if needed.

I use CH Naturals exclusively, and I've recently increased from 2 to 3 coals on my MYA QT w/MYA Jumbo bowl. I've seen vids where Hookah John himself uses 4, although I'm not quite sure which brand of coal he's using.

this is crazy...the amount of coals you guys is wild.. the reason i say this is that my local lounge only uses 1 coal at a time. they place the coal right in the middle and i/they get great clouds along with great flavor. the only use starbuzz and some nakhla. why do you think they only use 1 vice what we use at home 2-4 at a time?

maybe cause lounges want to save money?

i use 2 coals on my small/mini phunnels....well, 2 on pretty well any bowl i use, no need for more or it gets harsh. and i get pretty good clouds.
