Default some coconut coals i saw...

there was another hookah website i saw these on:

http://www.afireinc.com/Merchant2/me...onut_Charcoal7

7lb converts to 3.17kg if you were wondering.

from what i read they work great for smoking and one whole coal lasts for over 2 hours...i'm kinda interested to try these out when i have some spare cash to spend on them.

anyone else try coals like these?

Coconut coals are pretty hard to break. Looks like these pieces are pretty big, and would most likely require being broken into usable pieces. Hopefully they won't be like other coconut coals and take forever to light, ash like sand or small gravels, have to flip them every 5 minutes or they start to go out and taste awful etc. Most hookah smokers like to relax, and chiseling their coals to a usable size wouldn't be considered relaxing. I'm not sure what I'm going to do once my last box of Exoticas run out (about 75 smokes down the road). I may try bulk naturals.

I've been using this type of coal for a little while now and they not only taste better than self-lighting ones but they last quite a bit longer, going from say 30 minutes to well over an hour. There's a little more maintenance involved and they make a lot of ash, but the mess if worth it.

i would not be surprised if these are bad. there was a company komodo or something similar that made coconut coal and sent out 7 lb samples; the coals were huge, ashed like there's no tomorrow, and in general were very cheap. the 18lb box was cheap as hell, but who cares when the coal is 90% ash content.

I have done my research on these and othe coconut coals on the market. Sadly these style of coals are huge. They are great for grilling but not so much for smoking. If you are nice maybe I will tel you where I found coconut coals around the same size as coconara and CH coals. They are a bit of a hassle to get though so I still use CH almost exclusively.

even if they're huge i'd still be interested to try these...if they're truly as big as they look they can be broken into 4ths and even 6ths and still be around the same size as standard coconut coals.

now i'm just more curious to try these...

Great price but looks like too much work for me and 7 or even 18lbs?!? I don't even know where I would store that. I think the 1kg boxes of CH Nats are just the right amount for me.

your not letting the coco coals heat up long enough if they are going out and giving a bad taste, they get a thicker layer of black than exoticas though. it does take a bit of a learning curve to light them up but not much

I don't think I'm allowed to mention other forums, but another person found these coals and they've used them and loved them. He says they are huge, but just one on a small phunnel will keep going for over two hours, with nothing more then just ashing it. He said they take longer to light, but in the end last a lot longer so they're worth it. Also, because they're so big, breaking them up into four pieces gives you about the same size as a normal coconara coal. He didn't notice any weird smells, smoke, or flavor changes to it. Oh and if you guys want to try it, don't order it from their site. I guess he was saying they charge a lot for shipping so order it on amazon, unless you live in arizona where you can buy it at a store.

This was a coal I got in a bag of natural coals. Bulk lemonwood coals. I could cut 6 coconara size coals from this bad boy! This is a natural coal! Geez.. a small hacksaw and 5 minutes and you can have that whole load of coals cut up to the right size!

as to cutting them i remembered that some people cut their exotiacs with a band saw basically a whole box at a time, so that would be an option if you had a wood band saw that was pretty clean (i.e. only untreated bare wood was cut)
