Default almost bought bulk coal,

ok so i was at whole foods to day and they have the big bags of charcoal under the check out lanes and it was bulk natural hard wood, almost got it but decided it wasnt worth the work as of now at least but thought i would at least pass along that whole foods has bulk natural charcoal and i assume since its WF it is pure and clean

I use this site when looking at lump charcoal. Gives you a good idea of what you are in for before making a purchase. All natural lump charcoal with no chemicals is cheap and really effective. Mattathayde, I am always happy to see someone else who does not shy away from those kind of coals because they are not advertised for hookah only.

In the middle east, all what we use is bulk coals and they work just fine. In fact, they are much better than hookah coals here in the US

If they are natural coals I dont see how it could be a problem.

At the lounges here they use lump coal and one uses Mesquite the other uses Hickory. Smells great when they are burning which is a bonus.

Man you gotta try some proper natural coals, those are totally crap if you like them you are gonna love Coconara's or Ch natties

The abo alabed take to long to get full lit, and ash is yellow, and only last bout 30 mins plus dont give off enough heat

Guys, in a Lebanese restaurant with hookahs that i go, they use a brand of bulk coal. First time i went there i was surprised because i saw on the bowl 3 very very very small pieces of coal. I was wrong... They produce the most heat i ever saw in hookah coals and the best part was that they stayed in their original shape for a long time, and almosh NO ASH! And the flavor of the hookah was fantastic, so the coals didnt change the flavor. Imagine, i went last week there and they changed the coals a minute before food arrived. We left the hookah as it was, ate, and when we finish the coal size was the same! I think the name of the coals are Etosha and next week ill propably buy a packet.

yoyoyo, where is that restaurant? is it in the US or in Lebanon ..

BTW, in UAE we used to use Al-Hijaz coals which is made in Saudi Arabia ... I was wondering if one of the vendors can import that stuff ... it is amazing ... little ash .. easier to manage heat ..
