Re: natural coals help
DONT use a glass thing to light your coals. I had a hot coal once when smoking outside (it was quite cold), and I put the coal in an ash tray, made of glass. We went in side, and back outside, after a few mins, the glass was broke..
I'd say buy a single coil burner, it will cost a little money, but probably less than a glass stove, when you break it!
