Re: i bought some new coals and...
They are sometimes called "Jap Coals" "Silver Flints" "Easy Lite". They need to be lit on a coil burner or stove. There are some very good brands and some very bad brands. They are for the most part better than QL's and not as good as naturals. I have used the Chinese made Japanese style Easy Lites. They were good coals but i hated having to make sure all the silver stuff was burnt off before using them. They smelled pretty bad while lighting too.
