Score with knife and snap thats what i do, or if you are lazy and have a dermal using it to score and snap easy and you can score all of them super quick ahead of time.

Get a serrated knife, make 3 even slits (1/4). Then score them in a saw life motion.

Then, just break 'em. I have a review coming up right now on these and I sorta show how to cut them.

heat up the stick, then smack it with either a knife (works best) or your tongs. be careful though, this can be fatal.

I do exactly the same. I just break it with a tong and pray that I get it right. I really don't like Exotica coals because of this issue.

*raises hand*

The only one I did like was John's coals. But, I'm hella poor so a box of coals for $13.99 + shipping is really breaking the bank.

Idk, I love exoticas cuz their cheap and they last a long time. It has no imparted taste too! ^_^

I just score them with a small little paring knife and then snap them. The last two are always the hardest, so find a counter edge and push down on both sides.

No shit...when you can get some Exoticas for $9.99 a box...a nice sized box at that. I might in a blue moon buy some coconut coals...but man...expensive, not just for college folk.

I use a hand-held tree saw. One of the saw/knives i use has 2 serrated edges so 3 passes and the coal is cut half way down... effortless haha. I also have another that only has 1 serrated edge and after like 5 or 6 passes, it's about 1/4 way down and they snap veeeery easily.
