Re: I killed two coals!!!
Yeap, basically KK is right - the coals, with lack of O2, went out. But since you has already started them, most of the starter chemicals where burned away/off, so they really didn't have anything to "lite" with. I bet if you tried using them like naturals, (IE: sustained heat), they may heat and work. But, I think your right - you killed them Jim!
