Default How many cocobricos to use?

Ive just got some cocobricos because I heard they were as good as coconaras and I LOVE coconaras :P
They seem pretty similar but they are a fair bit bigger so I was wondering how many people usually put on, I used to use 3 coconaras but i'm a bit worried that 3 cocobricos might burn the shisha because of their size...
Maybe cut them up? Could be a bit small then though...thoughts anyone? =]

I always cut my cocobricos in half and use three halves per bowl. Works great for me.

Halves look like they might be a bit small...how long do 3 halves last?

Kinda depends on what bowl you are using. I use a Vortex with 3 layer of household foil and 3 briccos, just try it out...

I didnt think they produce as much heat as coconara's, so using the same amount as you do with coconara's should work, also the cocobrico's have a chemical taste to them as well

depends on the bowl you use. but you dont need to break the cocobricos in smaller pieces.
i use 3 cocobricos for my funnel and for smaller bowls i use 2 cocobricos.

I just had two crappy bowls with bricos I NEVER burn shisha and both of these tasted burnt...or it could be this chemical taste patelbadboy mentioned...
Hopefully ill have a phunnel soon, atm im using an egyptian bowl...which I quite like I must say but still, maybe this wont happen with a phunnel.
Im sure I can work out a way of using them properly...tried 3 halves, tried 3 whole ones...LAME

actually there is not a chemical taste with cocobricos, but there is more heat, than with coconaras. you should use less tobacco or/and more layers of tinfoil. i never had a problem with the bricos.
