I feel like a shill saying this, but I love exotica coals - My favorites are the "stellar" blue box coals, but now that those aren't carried by H-S I'm using these again - I've tried so many others and nothing really compares -
the absolute best. a buddy of mine brought these home from texas while stationed there with the army. since then these are the only ones i will use.. flavorless odorless... and long lasting. quick lights suck
These coals are very efficient in every way, dense and extremely clean. not to meantion once you get them burning they are extremely hot. sugar cube-cut these 6 inch sticks down and you are set with only a few cubes needed for one bowl which last about an hour. enough said i bought 2 boxes and I say thats overkill even for the hardcore hookah smoker.
