Default Natural Charcoal

Hi, my friends. I find really good hookah shop in United Kingdom. Products there isn't very expensive, and shipping to Lithuania prices isn't very big too. So, I have decided to buy some Natural Charcoal. There is all coals what they have: http://www.theshisha.com/shopcart/ch...sha-c-341.html
Can you recommend for me best of that? Also, I want to ask, do I gonna feel difference to Naturals and QuickLights. Thats because I've never smoked hookah with naturals. Tell me all that you know. Thanks.

I would go with the nakhla. Naturals take more patience and time to heat up since you need a burner or torch to light them, but they are worth it due to no flavor from the charcoal and better heat.

So how do you think? Is it good idea, to buy it? Totally with shipping it will cost 29.48. 1 packes x 10 coals of 3 Kings QL's cost about 1.5 for me. So, what did you think?

Well in that case it won't be worth it at all. Your better off with the 3ks, they do just fine. That is way too much.

Literally takes me about 2 mins to take out my natural coals, walk them to the kitchen, turn the stove on high, and then once they get really hot I take them off and walk back to my room to put it on my bowl and start smoking. Not really patience just more like if you have 2 mins to kill lol.

i normally just start my natural coals up then i go back and start setting up my hookah. by the time i am done setting up the coals are good to go. i have never used any of those coals before i only use exoticas and if u can get those i would highly recommend getting them

if you have a torch is it pretty quick to get them going? i will not be able to smoke in my apartment that i am moving into (partially casue lease says no, and partially just a deal with my roommate) so i will have to go out side and dont want to have to buy a hotplate/camp stove burner to get them going when i have torch lighters and can justify buying a larger torch lighter as apposed to a stove.

I use all natural BBQ charcoal as of now. I'm not dead, so I guess they work. Haven't been sick at all either, but i wouldn't recommend randomly buying all natural bbq charcoal for smoking. Stick with coal that's used for hookah.

No, they have be 100% natural with no additives. Even then, they are still questionable. I know the coals i use are safe because someone before me has used them for years.

not only that but the woods used are more consistent and some one figured out it works better with a hookah, BBQ charcoal even if it is natural is probably going to be a mix of woods and different woods at that.

i dont think a substantial amount will get puled out, some will get picked up by the water but i doubt its a substantial amount since the CO is gas

If I am going to be smoking for some hours, I will begin using Japanese (style) coals. I will place a natural coal, on top of a hot Jap. coal, until the natural coal ignites. Then, when the Jap. coal expires, Just brush off the ash, and continue smoking with the natural coal.

I use only natural charcoals. I use BBQ coals from "Tom Cococha". I don't know if they are available in your shops. I feel a difference between QuickLites and those coals. The flavor taste better and i can smoke much longer and the natural coals are cheaper too.
