Default wow, exploding coal

wow just had one of johns CH coals shatter in my tongs, i have the small ends of coals that always break apart but never a full coal, caught me a bit off guard.

i think i left i on the burner a bit to long since that is the only thing different than normal. kinda weird but what ever.

That sucks. I have been using those coals for 3 months and I didn't have any problems. I guess I better watch out.

Never had a problem with CH coals. The only coals I ever had an issue with are the Ahkkla brand coals, not just once but a bunch of times.
I'm pretty sure that Ahkhla's are left over land mines from WWII

ya, it took me a min to realize what happened since i hadnt had any issue unless they were the size of a large pea and at that point it is expected.

.0015625%,just from my use, is how many ive had issues with, and thats a damn good rate which i know is much better than that.

then my roommate was dumb enough to ask me this morning "what happened to your little rug" (i got a small rug to put down for coal spills). i really wanted to be like "what the hell do you think, i burned it, thats what its there for so your pos rug doesnt get burned any more" (probably doesnt help ive wanted to smack this kid up side the head for not doing anything he needs to do here and keeps asking favors of me with out even a thankyou </rant> sorry bout that
