Default The new Coco's

I'm sorry if this has already been brought up ( I'm sure it has) but they deserve another thread.

For those who don't know the new coconara coals are a cube shape instead of a rectangular prism shape.

AND THEY ARE AMAZING!!!
I just received four boxes of em' and they are the best most longlasting coals I've tried yet.

Has anyone else tried them and have an opinion on them.

They are a square shape but not a cube. a cube has all the same dimensions on any side. I should've clarified sorry, it's just a little hard to explain the mathematical term for the old shape.
OLD - It's square from the top view and rectangular from the side.
NEW - Square anyway you look at it.

Like I said .. I keep Coconara and Exotica on my fridge right now .. currently they are both my go to coals!

Coconaras are some great coals! .. and with our discount we are getting some serious bang for the buck! Buy 3 get 1 free!

I can't wait to get home and smoke some Al-Qamishli tonight!
.. for those of you that don't know Al-Qamishli is a very hard to get, traditional moassel and I will definitely be using some Coconaras with it, because I know that the Coconaras will provide me the right heat for this very exclusive and traditional tobacco without imparting any coal taste to my smoking enjoyment. I can't wait!!

Yeah Coconara's definitely are good coals. Especially now that you get 108pcs instead of 84pcs. Just have to be patient and wait for them to be fully lit.

Best drink for al-qamishli is probably just ice water as it has many subtle flavors that could get lost if you have anything else with flavor in the mix.
With that being said, there is nothing like a really good beer!

I've never tried using a gas stove but my electric stove lights them pretty quick. I made a rudimetary wind cover using some tin foil last night and it lit the coals within 3 minutes! It was awesome

I light mine on a gas stove and they're usually ready to flip when I'm done packing the bowl, then it's just a minute on the other side and you're good.

i find the problem with a gas stove is not the amount of heat it gives off, but figuring out how to line up the coal with the flame, once you figure out how to do that, it works just as good as a coil
in fact my stove pumps out at 16k btu's which is typically higher than any electric.

how do you put them on a gas stove? I put mine on the edges of the gas burners, but need to turn them quite often to get them fully lit.

I use an electric stove. I put them on right before I start packing my vortex, and by the time I'm done packing and poking my holes, they're ready to flip. I cook them about a minute more, blow off the white ash and put them straight on my bowl. Carry my hookah back to where ever we're smoking rotate the coals one and take a pull. Big fluffy clouds 100% of the time!!!

I love the Coco-Nara's!!!!!!! They last so long and barely ash. They also give off great heat even when they are very tiny!!!
