Default Bad batch of CoCoNara's?

My last batch lasted between 1hr and 1.25hr, and this batch is only lasting about 30 to 45 minutes.. What gives?

You are correct, baking them in the oven sucks the moisture out, I want to say it was 300 degrees or so, but dont quote me.

Baking them only works if your coals are dying out or arent lighting up properly.

Sniper are you taking more drags than before? Any fans on in the room?

How often do you ash/move them? I noticed I was getting a bit more time out of mine when I stopped fussing with them so much.

Nope, same amount of pulls. And I don't mess with them at all. I just let them sit in one stop the whole time. I use a vortex, so there's no need to move them.

Lol, are you implying that the vortex changes the way heating works?

Anywayyyyy
If you want to try baking them go at 200 degrees for ~1 hour. There is a thread by william petruzzo some where about it.
