how else to do it, saw through them with the miracle blades! haha i love those knives and if you have ever seen the infomercials how they say you can use it to cut through drywall or make a "cut" on solid steel and then use it to cook and it will still be just as sharp as they day you bought it. well that claim is entirely true and my dad put it through the test over the years when he bought the first miracle blades and they still cut beautifully today. we got a new set at the la county fair recently and i just love cutting through crap, coals are no problem to cut through.
when i dont have them i just use what samb said to do
