Re: Problem with Coconara.
About time some folks tell the truth about caca nara's. They take longer than any other coal I've used to light, they need to be flipped every 5-10 minutes or they start going out and give off an nasty wood taste, they ash like sand which I hate, and 1 is not enough for a standard Egyptian bowl and 2 is too much. I didn't even mention that they are expensive. I'll keep using Exoticas until something truly superior shows up. Sure a batch here and there are crumbly, but it's not as big a hassle as coconut coals.
