Default First Tangiers experience

Alright guys, so I smoked some Tangiers Horchata today. I let it acclimate for about 5 hours, then it started smelling sort've cinnamony with extras included.

I packed the phunnel bowl super tight at first, I thought that's what i was supposed to do. I couldn't get any airflow whatsoever, so then I took off the foil, loosened it up. After that, I tried with 1 coal and was getting minimal smoke. I used 2 coals and got acceptable smoke (not thick clouds, but it wasn't thin and wispy). I was scared to go for 3 coals for Husky said anything over 1 is too much.

It packed quite a nicotine kick and the flavor was great (although I smoked Tropical punch right before it and forgot to blow out the hose, so it was a little weird for the first 15 minutes).

Any suggestions to help me get bigger clouds with Tangiers? For the hole pattern I made 3 circles of close together holes, larger than i normally do. one around the outside, one in the middle, and one in the inside. I packed it so air could flow through, and I don't know if "more heat" is a solution or not to this dilemma.

Sounds like a heat prob. Do as they say, then make sure you punch larger holes as well. ~200% bigger!

give it really big or just a lot more holes.

ive noticed it takes a little more time to heat up and the heat works better when the coals are smaller and a windcover is used to kind of give it a more even heat. i also flip my cocos just after it heats up to get more even heat in the bowl

Did you push holes all the way to the bottom of the bowl? If not give that a try. Some people smoke Tangiers with a few rings of holes as you did, others will fill the entire surface with holes.
