Could be, but there's also more chance of burning the tobacco w/ more coals. Try 1 coal w/ a windcover.

windcovers work wonders!

You could always try two sheets of foil and two coals .. that is what I did in the early days and still do on occasion.

go with the wind cover i was able to finish off a funnel last night with tiny bits of exoticas due to a wind cover (but it was about 2 inches of the top because i had to rest it on the funnel)

what bowl are you using and what coals. if its one of the mya bowls that come with them (kinda deep bowls) you can get away with 2 QLs unless the shisa is heat sensitive, even 1.5 will work probably.

im kind of assuming your using QLs, but if you are using exoticas and have 1/4 on, go to 2 1/4s or one 1/3

i have found that a lot of people here use more coal than i do, if i use the amount they do it gets burnt and harsh even with constant moving.

dont expect great smoke for at least 5-10 mins, if you can toss the coals on and right away get great smoke with out even waiting you have way to much heat.
