This should tell you that the coals are fairly unrelated. If you have lit coals for a long time without this effect then it was likely another change that caused it.

You said that it does not happen all the time which could mean it happens in those two appliances without you noticing.

If you have all burners on and start a coal will they all change? If so then it's not inside the lines. You are dealing with a blanket of low density gas sitting on top of the stove and changing the way it burns.

If you are only talking about where the flame contacts the coal then that is pretty standard.

My point was really that it's not CO traveling into the lines against the flow of gas.
