Re: Exotica coals? cheap replacement for *******?
Exoticas may ash a bit more but I love them. The only difference I see with the new formula is a much cleaner looking ash and they are prescored which makes for easy breaking. You get 25 sticks that break into 3 pieces each so quite a lot of coals. That deal you found is great, I usually buy them for 10-12 dollars a box from local smoke shops. All in all they are definitely a cheap alternative.
