Default Heating Up Exotica Coals

Hey what's up? I'm new to the forum. My name is Cory. I live in Michigan, soon to be Orlando, FL.

Anyways. My stove is the type of stove that is flat, meaning there is no metal to set the coals on, just the flat surface.

Does this matter at all when heating the coals?

I wouldn't suggest using the flat stoves, it could damage the glass.

I would suggest going to walgreens and picking this up for 10 bucks:

I'd suggest buying a blowtorch or a hot plate to heat those up...If you cook 'em on your current stove, it will probably mess it up big time.

I got one of the single coil electric burners for $8.99. It works great. I used to light them on my kitchen stove, but got tired of cleaning the burner.

You could have gotten a cheap skillet to heat them in on top of your stove also.

in my experiences, the coils heat better than a hotplate or a skillet because air can flow on the bottom of the coals as well...

How long does it take for the exotica coals to be heated up on one of those gas things.
I have a gas flame oven, would this work?

I let the burner get hot then put the coal on. It takes about 3 minutes on the first side then 2 minutes on the other sides for a total of about 9 minutes.

sorry, it hurt to see someone say a rectangle has 6 sides... even if you did mean a rectangular prism
