Default Tom Cococha (big coals)

I recently bought a 3 kg box of Tom Cococha coals. I had them before in kilo boxes, they were quite good.
But.. the 3kg box has HUGE chunks of coal:



So my question:

Do I have to cut one in half?
And what is the best way to light them? Using a gas stove (don't have a coil burner) would take ages I think.
Anyone got experience with this coals?

I would try and cut them in half. Personally I dont have experience with there.. I use coconara. but if a gasstove takes to long wouldn't other things be just as slow?

When I use small cocobrico coals, I put them on the gas stove for about 5-10 mins. Then on the bowl with windcover for another 5 mins. After that they are lit good enough.

But these ones are much bigger, so I assume litting a big one would take even longer.

I use this thing:


Purchased from a German webshop. Works great.
First light the coal and then chop in half with my KM hammertongs. I usually light two of those big ones and put three pieces on top of a bowl at the start. But it might be that I use a bigger bowl as yours seems pretty small.

By the way you have 3 kilo boxes with small ones as well. I have them over here.

Are these as good as coconara's? Because if they are I will buy them to. Itll be cheaper. Sweetlake can you give me the site of the german store where you bought that coal burner?

www.shisha-laden.de is that website.
I normally use cocobrico's (small ones) and they work great. Especially for the price, a kg (72 pieces) is €2,99 as most websites, and 3kg boxes are around €6-€7

Cocobricos are the small ones, the red labelled cocochas are the big ones, and the yellow label cocochas are the small ones however it might just be me but i think the cocobricos are more uniformed in shape that the yellow label cocochas!

I think its about time i make a post!

I received some of these in a trade. Breaking them in half worked very well. Much easier to manage than that huge brick. Good coal either way.

You can buy them on several german sites. I purchased mine on www.shish-laden.de

They also sell them at a belgian vendor.

It actually is exactly the same as Cocobrico, but twice the size.
You can cut them into two pieces and use them like normal cocobricos. Just light them with a gas burner or with a cooker
