Default How to light naturals.

So I hear the stove is my best bet. Am I supposed to put the coal directly on the burner or on some type of plate? How can I tell if the coal is done?

Coals will be glowing red everywhere when done

Put it directly on the stove, but a coil burner works better

If you are referring to natural coal, as in charcoal I would advise you to use a gas stove. You know it's ready when its glowing red all over (preferable to use small chunks). Blow on it a little and rip away!

Put them directly on the burner, it should take from 4 up 10 minutes to completely light, all depending on what kind of coals you are using.

Edit: Forgot to mention you will know when they are done by the red glow and the white-ish ash on the outside. Usually want to flip them when the bottom half is glowing.

I'm using Abu Abdo coals, and yes I have a gas stove. How do I break the coals down into smaller chunks? Is the coal breakable enough that I can just use my hands?

Yes, just use your hands, try and get them about the same size of a quick lighting coal.

Oh, and its probably useful to light more than just one little piece as I've found out they tend to burn out pretty quickly.

I'm using Coco Nara and they are absolutely a nightmare to light for me because I have an electric stove, not the once with the circle thingies but the flat ones plus I don't have a torch lighter. However, I just bought a portable electric single stove especially for coals from nazarhookah. You should really get one since they are on special for only 9.99. The ones at walmart are almost 30 bucks.

I'm sorry it's actually 14.95, but I bought one yesterday for 9.99 so I lucked out there since the special ended, however it's still a great buy and cheap.
