Re: bad coals?
The CH coals definitely give off a smell when lighting. My wife use to always ask .. "Are you burning something?!?" .. I've stopped using them because of the smell and I have found better natural coals .. Coconaras and Exoticas are my primary coals.
CH tried to duplicate Coconaras but couldn't replicate the awesomeness of Coconara!
If you want some good coconut coals, I can recommend (based on my personal opinion) the Coconaras. I am also anxious to try the Starlights that CaptHowdy sent me. Dee and CaptHowdy speak very highly of the Starlight coconut coals, so I am excited to try them, based on their valued opinions.
Save your CH coals for a bonfire, chiminea, or fireplace .. if you light them in the fire nobody will notice the smell. That is what I use to do.
