Default Natty question!

So i decided to finally try some natty coals, and im not too thrilled. I picked up al fakher coconut coals from a local shop. They light rather quickly on a stove, but whenever i go to ash them or move them, the bottom (touching the foil) has always died out (completly black). Perhaps somehow lighting them the wrong way, but i leave them on the stove until theyre lit all the way through, and ashed over... so bad coals or just a lighting problem?

yeah, they all do that... I personaly don't flip them, after all hookah is about relaxing... They still burn fine, when you pull and the coal has air passing by that area again...

that and the area isn't dieing out when it turns black, im almost positive if you touch it, it will still burn like hell...

Hm, i was expecting this to be a flaw with the coals, not a typical scenario. Interesting. I I thought they were burning out, but if thats not the case i suppose im satisfied, big improvement on taste at least (or well, lack of).

My coconut coals, either ShishaCo or CH nats don't black up that much on the bottom. I usually pick them up, blow on them once or twice and they're red hot again. I don't know about AF though.

If the bottom of the coal becomes black to the point that you can't light it back up by blowing on it, there may be a moisture problem (your coal is dying). You can fix that by removing the moisture from your coals. Lay them out in a room that has a dehumidifier or expose them to the sun (by a window).
