I have all of them in some form, and I never use the quick lights (the freebies that you get with orders). I begin to panic when I get low on coconaras and start deciding if the bowl is "coconara-worthy", and if not I'll use finger coals or some natural olive wood coals from the emergency stash.
You're the first one that mentions the lemonwood...do you think they're better than the exoticas!? cause I think I may be able to get them here in Mexico.
