I would say either CH coals or shishaco naturals. They have both done really well for me and are relatively inexpensive.

Unlike many others, I like Golden QL's because they give the proper amount of heat and there is no coal taste during smoking.

Most of the Japanese Easy light coals are not that great. I only use them if i only have time for a very short session. They also break in half easily which will make them last less. But if you like shorter sessions and dont mind lighting them and the smell and all, they are Okay

edit: and remember, they are not quicklights. They are easy lights. This means that you still need a stove or something you would use to light other natural coals with.

Like Thunder said, Canary Golden Japanese coals are excellent but greenteaman is also correct in that they aren't really quick lights despite the directions on the box saying to light them with a match or lighter. FWIW, they are what I used all the time before switching to CH coals.

The best coals in my opinion are Coconaras. Shishaco coals are great, but i really dont like using 3 coals on my vortex, you go through them too quickly. With coconaras, they are more consistent with shape and they are larger. I can just use two coconaras and a windcover on my vortex and it lasts a bit longer than 3 shishaco coals. The differences between most natural coals are the size and shape of them, and how they ash. Coconaras are larger than most natural coals, and they ash like no other coal i have seen (barely any ash).

I'm using Exotica Easy-lites, cos I ran out of CH nats. I have to say they are not too bad. They are cheap and work great in a pinch.
