Default can u light Coco Naras with a lighter?

just wondering if you can light coco naras with a lighter because i think it would be a pain in the ass to use a stovetop ha.

nope, it would take about 2 hours with a lighter your better off with a coil burner stove top all you have to do is let it sit for 10 mins. 5 mins on each side till it's nice and red hot

its easier on the stove than with a lighter. Coconaras take anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes to be fully lit. You can however use a blowtorch, i did yesterday when i couldn't find my single burner and i used my creme brulee torch.

Just hold the coal over your Bic lighter's flame until it's red hot on all sides. It might take a little while but the result is brilliant.

in my exp so far an electric stove top works better than a gas stove, and your lighter would probably melt before you got the coal even started lol, though a mapp gas/propane torch might work pretty well lol

No but you can light ******* Hookah quick lights with a lighter and that takes a bit of patience and practice. If you don't have any means of lighting natural coals or you just don't want to work with them then just use quick lights and be sure that they are red hot before using them.

Maybe if you use a propane torch as a lighter! LOL J/K. And kids, please don't try this at home!!! I usually just use the coil burner on my kitchen stove but I do have a small, portable coil burner I picked up at Walgreen Pharmacy. They had it on sale for under $8. Smoke happy.

Actually you can take like a piece of a clay *** or a clay bowl put ur coco-naras on there and heat it up in the microwave for 90 seconds. Heats them all the way through. Just dont get startled you will see some sparks from the coals, just enjoy the show.
