I just made my first one yesterday. Very brilliant idea SGT. This thing is really hard to blow out. I had to put the pot over it to deprive it of O2. Anyway, on with my question. Most of my flames seem to want to come up through the center. I am pretty sure that is not the way it is suppose to work. It would probably still work fine, but how do I get it so the flames come out the sides more? I made the version with the slits and not the pin holes if that makes a difference. Thank you.
