Default Natural Coals?

For those who use natural coals -
I was wondering if you get them started burning on one side and then putthem on the boal or get the whole thing burning.

I wasn't to sure so I set the whole coal on and when I put them on the bowl I put one that wasn;t burning on and eventually the lit coals like that one...

Natural coals need to be thoroughly lit on both sides. It is unsafe to smoke them otherwise. not to mention foul tasting.

Natural coals should be cooked for atleast 5 min, possibly more. Cooked as in "Direct heat applied" then flip them over a few times during the cooking will speed it up. Sometimes, if you start a natural and remove it from the heat, before it is glowing red (or even started ashing) the coal will go out. No matter what you put it on/against (even another coal - it can put out both. the lack of oxgyen and heat will allow them ot go out). Remember, naturals lack the starter chemicals of QL's and need HEAT to "lite".

But even with QL's you should cook a coal till red-hot &/or ashed over, before putting it on the bowl. Less chance of "bad" chemicals getting sucked into your lungs (other than the tobacco and such not).

QL's can be done like that, but Natural's don't take to that type of "stand-by" usage - I've tried, but they normally just went out on me and then it was a (BEEP) to get them to re-lite. Best thing for naturals, lite them as you need them and have a windcover handy to nurse the dying ones till the new ones are ready.

get one of the coal carriers or a big well sieve basically. first light a few decent sized coals completly then put them in that sieve with other unlit coals. put a fan on the coals and that will get all the rest of the coals going. you will have plenty of lit coals but you are going to have to constantly add new coals because many of the ones you have on will just burn up completly because of the number that are in there. you dont need to put in a lot just remember have atleast 2-3 starter coals and a fan, the fan helps a lot on lighting them up.

Are Exoticas considered to be a natural? If so I usually light them on all sides until glowing red all over.

exoticas are considered natural coals. they do not have an accelerant on them to make them easier to light

Exoticas do not have any chemicals to accelerate the cooking process. That is why it takes about 4-5 minutes to cook. Thanks
