Re: coconut shell coals
CocoNara, ShishaCo, Starlight Nats, I dont see a difference in. Price difference is the big one. If you actually pay attention, there may be a 5-10 minute difference in time they are lit. But I think that has to do more with heat management. I love all three of these and use Starlight Nats because I get them locally for a great price.
I have never used AF so I can't help you there. The other coals you mentioned, that I refuse to promote anymore, STINK! They smell horrible.
Also check out Exotica coals. Another natural coal that is pretty good. I use them as my backup coals.
