Re: bad coals?
I never had problems with CH coals. Yeah, the QL's smelled like gunpowder lighting up, but that went away quick. And they work as good or better as any coconut coals I've tried. Including those crummy Coconaras. They're the only QL's I've had that compare to a natural coal.
That said, I still prefer my Exoticas.
