Re: coconara coals are dangerous (read into)
yeah, with my exoticas if i don't have a serrated knife i just try to score the coal 4 times on the top, instead of 8. (4 cuts on the top, and 4 more on another side).
then i just put the whole damn thing on the burner. when it's COMPLETELY heated up i just smack the scored parts of the coals with the knife, or with tongs and BINGO.
