Re: Exotica Coals
I always score my Exoticas on 3 sides with a knife with small saw-like serations. I then put my thumbs under the unscored side and break them. They are a little hard to break but i love them. I use 1/4 stick on an Egyptian bowl and 3/4 on a small super chief. Plenty of heat and out of nearly 200 sticks I've used only 3 or 4 1/4 stick pieces have broken length wise. I believe that is caused but over heating the coal when lighting. I use a coil burner and leave each side of the coal on for maybe 1-2 minutes each. I only light 3 sides. They last a long time and are awesome.
