Question Silver Flint Coals

Just bought some Silver Flint coals off of hookah-shisha cause they were on sale. Just wondering if anyone's ever tried them and what they think of em. I'll post later to say how I like them.

What brand?

I have three boxes of these fools sitting next to me.

Best charcol on the market for me has to be the Golden Charcoal, but I have to find a way to get that stuff for under twelve dollars.

The Kwikstarts are subpar, but are my party coals. I just ran out last night when I had some work chums over, so I am glad I didn't have to throw them out.

The latest batch I bought was a brand called "Blown." I am not sure what to say of these, as I haven't used them very much.

All my friend would use is those silvertabs. Never had a problem with em really, always had good heat good smoke, on occasion we would get one that would crumble on us while we were in the process of dropping coals. No biggie though, overall pretty decent coals.

I ordered those a while ago and I am glad I only got the single box. They suck. They are "semi-quicklight" which means they need to be lit on a stove and take a little while. They are coated in a silver paint that gets absolutely everywhere and tastes terrible if it is still on the coal when you are smoking.

My biggest complaint is that they fall apart ever single time I use them. They fragment into layers and shatter easily. Be careful with them. I have had a lot of mishaps with them. Don't ash them.

they are not so terrible that they will not be use but I will not be ordering them again. There is a reason they are so cheap.

they aren't real quicklights.

japanese style quicklights still need to be started on the stove. blown and silver flint and the rolland ez light ones are all crumby. they fall apart, are hard to handle and break all over the place.

golden canary are excellent, however expensive.

So I tried em last night and ended up not even getting as far as putting one on the bowl. After lighting them I picked one up with my tongs and it shatered and red hot peices of coal went everywhere! Not sure what I'm going to do with the box of those stupid things. Haha

Your best bet it to use a spatula and tongs. Slide the coal off the burner onto the spatula and then reverse onto the bowl. Metal spatula of course.

Oh how I had wish I read this post before I bought a pack of them. I guess it's not that big of waste, $10 bucks later. I'll probably stick with exotica naturals. Haha, I'm a new hookah smoker. Just got my hookah about 4 days ago. from the very same place hookah-shisha.com.

i used to only use these coals. The japanese easy-lites aren't BAD... but i would get the occasional crumbly box. I found exoticas to be better in most ways ((only exception being that they take longer to heat up. no biggie))

Those coals were probably my worst mistake in hookah so far. We're completely out of coals and have a whole box of them. We'd rather wait to smoke 4 days instead of use them.
