Default Circular coals?

Okay, so my local shop selling hookah products has circular coals rather than the conventional rectangular, and when I put them on the bowl they seem to reach really far toward the center (because they're circular).

I think my hookah might be burning, I'm kind of new to this, does anyone have any suggestions/insight?

you could break them in half, or you could have the coal extend OFF the bowl instead of towards the center.

Breaking them in half sounds like a good idea, I try to extend them off the center as much as I can, but I worry the coals will fall off.

You must be referring to quick lights, the round disc shaped coals?? If so break them in half and put one half on each side of the bowl.

Then there are the other round ones, the natural ones that look like round logs. Those roll off if you aren't careful, and a big ash tray to catch is great

ive used the same type and ive experienced that having whole pieces hang off the edge works the best. lasts longer since your burning 2 coals instead of 1 broken in half.

Stop using them and go find some natural coals. While the QLs are convenient they taste like booty and don't last nearly as long. Find some naturals and you will never look back.
