Default Re: Chemicals in coals?

But even natural coals can be scary .. There is a particular brand that is made in China and it produces a red colored ash. Kinda scary when you think about that! Who knows what they are putting in those coals!?? Seems like companies will cut corners just to save a buck on production, in order to turn a bigger profit, with no real concern for the end user.

As for quicklight coals. I stay away from them unless I have no other choice. When I do use them I light them outside, I am make sure that they are gray all the way around before even putting on top of the bowl. AND after I put them on top of the bowl I let them sit for 4-5 minutes before smoking.
