Problem with Coconara.
Just got my Coconara coals just to see what the hype was about. Must say, I am pretty dissapointed with their performance thus far. They take about 7 mins with a blow torch to light up red, and even then I can see black sports inside the coal. Does that mean its not lit properly? Also, I need to switch the coal sides every ten mins otherwise it dies, and lastly, it also adds a distinct taste to my flavours, like a coconut taste.
What am I doing wrong? Is it not lit enough, or have I just got a bad batch?
