Default Re: Mizo Watermelon and ******* Nats

I know what you're talking about. CH nats do spark while they're on the stove and they have that foul smell when they light up. They also do spark (kind of like a mini-explosion with sparks going off everywhere) sometimes when I'm taking a pull, but especially when they're lighting up.

You're not crazy, it's happened to me as well. I don't think it's a defect of the batch you got, I'm pretty sure they're like that by design. If I had to formulate a theory on this, I'd say it's because the coals are not dense enough and there are tiny air bubbles trapped inside of the cubes that create those sparks. It also makes them more friable.

They're not bad coals, they just have their quirks.
