Heating natural coals
Well, in a bit UPS should be delivering my latest shipment from H-S.com and for the first time I decided to get natural coals. I avoided them generally because I'm too damn lazy to take the time to light them and I'm usually on the go with my hookahs but I'd figure I'd go ahead because I had some extra cash on discount to blow.
Anyway, it occurs to me that I really don't have a clue how folks light these. All I pretty much have to myself here right now is a gas stove and a few butane lighters heatwise. Do you generally hold a coal over a stove flame for a few minutes or what?
