Default First time using tangiers

So I just got an order of tangiers yesterday and let it sit out spread out on a sheet of foil for 8 hours today. This was after letting it sit out for a long time yesterday. I just packed a bowl and put two coconaras on top. It was really harsh so I took one off. There wasn't any flavor to the smoke and it gave really thin clouds. I packed it like the videos I've seen. Any advice on how to get this smoking right?

my suggestion is to watch other videos or try other methods.

to give you any advice i would have to know what type of bowl you are using as well.

fill it up loosely just above the rim and then semi-firmly pack it down pushing against the walls of the bowl. Make sure you poke fairly big holes in the foil.

ive never packed tangiers in a vortex but thats how i pack it in my phunnel and/or egyptian bowl

Regular or lucid?

I'd sprinkle tangiers into the bowl and then push it down with your fingers or a small fork. 2 cocos on the rims. Let it sit for a min or few before taking a pull. Lots of little holes in the foil. Wipe the juice off the foil before putting coals on it - if there's too much juice it may burn and smoke and taste like crap.

Its regular tangiers.

I had it laying out AGAIN for 9 more hours, its smells more like the flavor should, but it STILL smells like BBQ sauce. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong, but this is making me turn away from tangiers.

Best thing to do is to let it sit out for 24 hours in the room your going to smoke it in, then pack it a bit firm but clear the holes of your vortex then use HD foil and use two sheets and make semi big holes and start off with 3 coals to start it off and then take one off to let it ride for the rest of the session and if u need a bit more heat add the third coal That's how I do it when I use the noir kind and works like a charm
