I agree with the above. I like coconaras, but I use *******s for the cost. I also got a sample of Al Fakher coals. They burn similar to coconaras, that is to say a little "cleaner" then *******s but they are a bit irregular in size. I think the price is somewhere between that of cocos and *******s. Buy a small box of each and see which you prefer.
I have no experience with a phunnel, but I'm planning on getting a small one myself as it appears to be plenty large.
