Al Ajdad Coals vs the rest of the naturals -
Locally I only have access to the Al Ajdad coals, and since I purchase all of my shisha locally, I am not too excited about purchasing coals online and having to pay shipping on top of prices that are already significantly higher than what I can get the Al Ajdad's for.
How do other natural's compare to the Al Ajdad's? I notice absolutely no flavor coming from the coals when I use the AA's, they also light in 2 minutes flat on an electric coil burner (which isn't any longer than it takes for a QL to fully burn off the accelerant). Negatives; just the increased maintenance from ashing them and the low heat emission if using only one. Everyone raves about the coco's, and I'm likely to break down and buy some soon. Guess I just need that extra push off of the fence.
Anyone else have experience with the AA's and Coco's that would like to provide some insight?
