Default Anyone in UK tried using this coal?

http://www.tregothnanshop.co.uk/ShowDetails.asp?id=242

It says its been created for wood and no chemical production. so would it be suitable to smoke hookah with?

Personally I would stick with coals that were designed for hookah smoking.

...You could also wear mittens on your feet as socks... but do you really want to?

i think the cocobrico's are the best naturals ive ever tried, they take a while to heat up but last for ages, good heat, they ash nicely to.

MAn you gotta try coconara's then, they are half the size and last longer and ask the same and produce NO taste, cocobricos have a slight chemical taste to them

I've used natural hardwood briquets in a pinch once. I can't recommend it. They burn too fast for any extended smoking and will give you one mean mutherfucker of a headache. Yuck.

Coconaras are amazing, they produce almost no ash, it's like they just evaporate.

ShishaCo are on par with Coconara but they ash a lot.

******* Hookah Nats light up quicker and burn hotter than both. But they smell bad when you light them up and they ash quite a bit afterwards (the ash is like sand).

All of these coals are great, my faves being the Coconaras.

well again we need to figure out exactly how much we paid for them each including shipping because we also got some black label it just not that straight forward lol

I think it will be pricey prob around 3 to 3.50 mark again because we havent really sold these before we dont really no what price is a decent price.


Oh look patelbadboy 101 posts lol

Considering the cost you have plus the importing cost etc, i would say 3-3.30 is a fair price, but imo smaller ones aren't really worth it for me as i would go through a pack in less then half a week, i need the 84 pcs min lool
