Default Appears that ther MAY be an issue w/ Dyimite Coal Fingers

I've been reading about alot of people having issues with these coals - I bought several bags and for the first bag, it was sweet: best coal I've used so far. But now I've cracked open a new bag and they are acting completely different - almost like it's a different brand of coals...

They split down the longway, they ash thicker and denser, and don't seem to last as long as they did in the first bag. They still work fine, just very differently than the 1st bag I had.

Has anybody else suffered these same issues with the Dyimite Finger Coals?

I hope they haven't changed something drasticly - I love these coals and recommend them to several people here (and elsewhere) and now feel bad that they seemed to have changed for the worse

I heard rumblings of quality control issues from teh initial product to subsequent ones. I hope they work out for you though, would suck to have to toss em. I liked the sample you sent me. I now use Exoticas and they are the bomb diddly doodly(Thats for you Dunk)

Yeah, thxs for the recommendation ya scurvy dog! Me coals always seem to be splitting at the seams. Ye daughter of a biscuit eater needs to walk the plank for such a recommendation!

OK, seriously, yeah, my coals have been splitting, but other then that they have been great for me! I have 2 bags, we will see if there is a difference with the second bag. But they seem to work for me, just splitting down the middle.

Samm, have you tried the exoticas yet? They are better IMHO than the dyamite's. And square too so they dont roll. I understand you have $$$$ invested in those but there is an alternative if those turn up bad, or when you run out.

Which Sam are you taking about? I bought several bags and on my recommendation, SamB bought several bags as well.

I've been considering looking into the Exotica's as well as the Ankla(sp), as well as the Canary Ql's (always need a QL around).

To be honest, I like them both. The Exoticas are nice because they are square, so they don't roll around. Great for when you have multiple people passing the hose.

If I had to choose only one, I would choose the Exoticas as my goto coal.

Exoticas are way awesom! Never had anything quite like it. QL's I would go with Ahkla's. I have both Exotica's for everyday use, and Akhla's for when I travel to Memphis and need a QL.
