I havent used smileys coal but i believe they are similar to the ones i use. They are very difficult to brake as they are burnt pieces of hardwood. This type of coal is not processed in any other way and contains no chemicals at all. But because of that it can go out easily. They have to be completly lit when put on the bowl, or else they wont last long.
Having said all that, i still have to say that i've had the best sessions with that kind of coal. No odour, no taste, no smoke, no crackling up or spliting in two after some time. This is the kind of coal that they use at local lounges and this is the kind of coal everbody should use.

NOTE* You may find some pieces that are very difficult to light or will never light up at all. This is common for this kind of coal.

Cheers

You will have to manhandle that coal! To try to break it up a little more, or you could a small hammer and screwdriver to break it up if they are big chunks.

When you light them, you are going to have to make sure they are LIT! Don't use to big of a chunk because they burn hot.

Hope that helps ...

Just take a U shaped piece and put your palms of the sides of the U and snap it like that... that's worked pretty well for me... even though it's hard

I just bought a bag of the smileys coals about two weeks ago and so far i havent had to use to big a piece. I'v found enough good sized pieces to have one coal on each side of my phunnel which works out perfectly. I also love how you can put them out with water then light them back up later
