ive noticed with 3 kings when lighting them as it sparks black residue flies everywhere as well. my ash tray is always covered in coal, not to mention they crumble fairly easily. i always have a chunk missing when pulling them out lol.
ive wanted to try using naturals but my problem is my stove is a glass top and i dont want to risk busting it, so ive considered buying a charcoal lighter even http://www.hookah-shisha.com/store/p...&idproduct=447
i doubt they are all that good but still, its a consideration
