They should be perfectly fine. The have no added chemicals and are natural hardwood which is just the same as the natural lump coal you buy or hookah specifically.

Hey if they are good then have a BBQ and you'll already have the coals ready afterwords to smoke! Not a bad idea. I'm going to have to do this.


Having a Hookah get together Sept 19th, perfect date to try this.

lol i tossed mine in the oven on self clean...in retrospect i should have turned the AC on first.

and if you try that make sure your ovens self clean can be canclled and opened, my friends over when he did this could not be canclled and locks the door, needless to say we never saw the coals again.

Got a bag of these same coals myself tonight. $7 for a 10 pound bag, helluva deal. Will let you all know how it turns out.

Using bulk wood is fine as long as it does not have a starter chemical. The ones for hookah are usually lemon wood or olive wood since they burn clean and give out the right amount of heat. The oak should be fine but could burn hotter. The only problem I have with bulk is the ashing and they need some time to get them started but if you smoke alot then they are very economical to use.

Not too bad considering the price, burned up pretty fast they seemed to me, but they were flavorless and I did get some good clouds going with them. Coconara sized chunks seemed to only last maybe 5 minutes then had to go get some more going. All in all I am going to use the rest of my 10 pound bag and thinks its worth the bit of extra effort lol.

I've used something similar and they work fine. They are natural wood, though and therefore take a little while to light (use a chimney perhaps) and burn away faster...but they are great.
Bonus you can just steal one or two from under the steak you've been grilling....
