You get the cocoa already?

SKKG- i would pack the bowl pretty tight, but not to the point where it affects your pull. I would also make sure you let it sit for a little while right before smoking it, put it a flat container and mix it every so often. I got mine to work pretty good but i did notice a little pit of the pungent smell comes back when you let it sit in a closed container

Okay here is what i do with tangiers. I let it acclimate when i get it for four hours while it is spread out thinly on its packaging stirring it every hour. After that it doesn't smell bad and it should be ready to smoke, i PACK it into a medium phunnel, do not let it just fall in, pack the bastard leaving some room for the foil to not touch the tobacco. I put a single layer of foil and poke way more holes in it than you would think three circles of holes close together with one hole in the very center. I then place 2 coconaras on it with a wind cover and let it sit for around 10 mins. After 10 mins it us usually ready to smoke. Remember that if the humidity changes dramatically where you live you may have to re-acclimate it every time it changes.

I have had that happen to me and it usually means i have a tad to much heat, like the windcover has been on it for 40 mins strait. Try taking off the wind cover and see if that helps, or rotate the coals.

Glad things worked out for you! It's really a great smoke. As you see from the negative posts it's not for everyone, but if it works for you it's one of the best smokes IMO.

These results usually stem from an overpack.

well i packed it to just above the rim and then tamped it firmly down. I tamped it to the firmness it said on the package.
Was it to much? Ive watched all the vids and but still not getting the amazing flavor everyone says it should have. Its a little irritating cuz i have several packs of tangiers that are just sitting there.
KBB can you give me a step by step of how you pack? Because I want to give this stuff another shot.

I pack it to the rim then added a little more and put the foil on top pressed down with my palm and wrapped the foil. Then put 5 rows of tiny holed with a small hole over the center

Just got 250g Horchata and some new coconaras in. Stuff smells pretty damn good so I wont be acclimating for long and most likely smoking it tonight. I replaced my vortex with a large phunnel and followed the technique i saw in the videos and my results were great!
