Default AL FAKHER COCONUT FAIL!!

Recently bought 7 boxes of Al Fakher Coconut coals from Dubai Mall.
When i got to try them in SA. None of them lit!! would put them in fire for 30mins and no redness, no smoke whatsoever!!....

However a friend of mine got hold of the same box from London and they work perfectly!! they burned for 90mins, no ash!!

Can anyone help me? maybe they were lit wrong, or maybe they were fake??:h ookahsmiley:

They may be water damaged or their moisture content may be too high.

How are you lighting them?

My guess is u need a coil burner, since all coco nats don light up over an open flame.

Untrue I used to use a gas stove to light coconaras all the time and it is about as fast or faster than a coil burner.

Ditto on that. I'd say that it's a matter of humidity.

Would placing the coals in a desiccant (such as rice) work to pull the moisture out of them?
