I'm not sure what I'm going to do once my last box of Exoticas run out (about 75 smokes down the road). I may try bulk naturals.
your not letting the coco coals heat up long enough if they are going out and giving a bad taste, they get a thicker layer of black than exoticas though. it does take a bit of a learning curve to light them up but not much

from what i read they work great for smoking and one whole coal lasts for over 2 hours...i'm kinda interested to try these out when i have some spare cash to spend on them.

anyone else try coals like these?
looks cool but like was said they do look huge
