Default Diamante coal users

how do you go about breaking these? When I apply the same methods I use for the Manaras, they tend to break off into several pieces. They seem to be a lot more brittle then the manaras. Any tips folks?

I usually break them before putting on the stove to light. Although I haven't tried breaking them with my tongs after they are lit, I do know people do that too though. I just haven't tried that yet. My problem, and I wouldn't say it is a big problem, is that my Diamantes split the long way after they are heated up, but that allows me to spread the heat around more...

I just break em' in my hands? A motion like you were trying to bend a bar of steel or something.

Yeah, it is not easy to get some good 1 inch pieces by breaking them that way, but with practice you will be able to break up the coals into some usable pieces
