Natural wood coals are fine to use, just a pain if they're not designated for hookah. You can find some brands and reviews on the natural bulk coals thread: http://www.hookahpro.com/forum/showthread.php?t=8

Afire coconut bbq coals also work, but they produce very little heat for their size, they smell when lighting and are a bit messy to work with. I find they produce no more CO than hookah specific coals, (according to my CO monitor/alarm thingy).

Any bulk natural wood coal will work fine. Don't use anything like mesquite or the likes.

I could advise to skip the nonsense and use coco naturals, but as we all do in the beginning, start with a good quality quicklight such as 3kings, and see how you feel, then work your way up. Welcome!

haha i ran out of coals and i couldnt wait a day to get my coconara's in, so i went to home depot and picked up a huge bag of hardwood lump charcoal. They seems to work pretty well once you heat em up and break em apart. I just avoid the ones that look like 2x4's
this was all after i attempted to make coals out of hickory, i didnt know if hickory was safe so after i made the coals i went and got the bag

Like Zen said, bulk wood coals should work but a wood like hickory or mesquite is going to impart flavor or smell.
