Default Vortex Question

I recently got a Vortex bowl but have not had a chance to use it yet! I was just wondering whether the Vortex bowl takes a bit longer to heat up then a tangiers phunnel bowl? I saw a review on youtube and that reviewer stated the vortex takes longer to heat up and smoke well then other bowls, so I was just wondering if this was true.

Thanks.

Not in my experience, good foil to bowl contact and good nats take about 2-4 minutes depending on my pack

Thanks buzz. I'm probably going to smoke AF using 3 coconara's so hopefully should be fine. Any tips on packing?

use a wind cover and you should be fine to get the heat up if you have trouble.

i put tobacco up to the rip very loosely then tap it down to the spire, 2 layers of reg foil. put 3 ch nats on slightly hanging off and put my wind cover on and let it sit a few mins then start smoking pull the cover off and move the coals when i know it needs it. honestly it seems to warm up better than an egyptian bowl and gets less harshness with better smoke
