Im a coconara fan, and a quicklight fan when i want to just get things done. but me and my friend were wondering about coal alternatives. obviously coals burn the most effective and dont interfere with the taste too much, but I was just wondering if you guys ever experimented with anything else. Like we were smoking near a fire pit and just for shits and gigs we used wood embers to smoke. it would be terrible for any fruit like shisha, but we were smoking an irish creme blend and it was honestly not bad.
The wood ember just added an almost hickory like undertone and was kind of enjoyable. only bad part was it'd only last for 30 seconds until you had to grab another ember lol
