Jamras are good and so are mazayas. Great coals.

alot of people here have said the jamra's do NOT beat the kanara's... thats a damn lie. i've used kanara's for maybe 2 months now, and just recently switched back to jamra's... jamra's take the title completely... every box of kanara's i've had end up half broken, and if they aren't broken yet, surely they'll break once you light them... The jamra's never break... case closed.

I haven't bought Kanaras in a while, but I never had this problem. No problems with Jamras either though.

I think what people don't realize is coconuts are seasonal, so therefore coconut shell quantity and quality is also going to be seasonal, if grade A+ coconut shell is used up or there is a shitty harvest coconut coal quality is going to go down. This is why there are a lot of people arguing "type y coal is better "no it's type x, I've tried y and it sucks". it's all about who has a more consistent product.

All brands can suffer from shitty batches you just need to know who has good batches of brand "xyz" at what time. I've tried some "good jamras" better than some other coconut coal batches I've had but I still wasn't impressed and the heat was way too high for what i smoke. I've never had Kanaras.

Well depends where the coconuts come from. If they get them don te tropics coconuts are abundant all year long.

I just bought 3 boxes of jamras, and there is no significant difference in the coal size they are all pretty uniform again when it comes to every coal being the same size i could honestly care less you get 108 pieces of 2 or 3 are bigger than the rest it doesnt bother me, but I have nad no problems with uniformity

So things I have learned since making this thread.

Cocos are not very uniform.

coco naras are awesome.
Kanaras are also good.

I use kanaras for the price I can't beat them. Next online order I will pick up a box of jamras. I found naras and kanaras at the local shops in astoria queens.

Only if you get more than just one box, or other things, $10 shipping is pretty steep considering most places have free shipping
