They dont produce loads of heat either. I would suggest the best to be the Coconara Natural Coals. They are currently out of stock at but the moment they are back in get them. the last for ages, dont burn the tobacco and give no extra taste. I use an electric heater to heat it but can also be done on a fire stove so any cooker will do jst takes a little longer on the fire one.
Let me know if you find any you like as im in UK too and tired of the standard swiftlites.

Oh and if you dont have any cooker to heat it on my best suggestion would be to get a proffesional chefs torch which is used to caramelize deserts etc ie if you live in UK then you can get one from TK max for 10 will heat up any coals nicely
Cheers for the advice, and everyone else. Ordered 96 coals and going to have a look in town for a kitchen blowtorch, hopefully they should arrive at the same time as my KM
