I like the price of those coconut coals. Has anybody ever order directly from alfakher-online.com before?

I have used the lemon naturals. They put out a lot of heat but the ash is SUPER fine and blows away at the slightest breeze. Also the chunk sizes is small to softball size at times. So you will be breaking up a lot of pieces here and there. I would like to get some of the coconut ones though.

There are several reviews of the lemon nats, mine is about 3 to 6 reviews down on this page, and there are at least two others past mine and on the next page.

+1. Got a bag for free with a hookah once. Most of it was dust or a choice between a twig and a huge chunk. It put me off natural wood coals. I made the switch to cocos and haven't looked back since

I have a little bit left in the bag of lemon wood coal that was gifted to me with an order. I like them. They are about as good as any other natural lump coal. They suffer from the same issues and have the same benefits. i know a lot of people refuse to use natural lump coal nowadays but it really is the cleanest burning type of coals. It is a way to avoid binders and things like that if that kind of thing gets you nervous with coals like cocos and exotica.

I tried the Al Fakher coals. I didnt like them.
They are too big (different sizes - like bbq coals).
either there are too much heat and everything burnt, or it was too little heat and there was no smoke.

I like the af coals as long as the bag hasn't been beaten like a baby harp seal. As far as big pieces go, try a hammer!

+1 to this. I received the same bonus and used them. And still use them as filler between coal orders. Work fine for me as long as I control the heat output. Lol, Abu that's too funny.
