yeah i agree with you here. tar is created when (pretty much) any organic substance is burnt. it's possible that the igniting of the coals can cause some tar to develop...so don't use quicklights. i used one today cause i didn't wanna wait 6 minutes for a few more nats to light up...eeeeew. ruined the session. as bradedup once said: "quicklights are like drinking warm beer".
also, yeah. all coals give off CO when lighting, but if they're lit all the way then there is no harm.
