Hey! So I was talking to this buddy in another city yesterday (about hookah of course) and he said that the lounges there use natural lumpwood charcoal used for grilling and they are the cleanest for smoking hookah. First I argued with him that one should only use charcoal meant specifically for hookah, but then I remembered reading Hass's reviews of the lounges in lebanon and that he was a fan(?) of such coals. Now I always use coals meant for hookah, but the coals I get here aren't exactly great. They are chinese coals with some silver shit on them that I scrape off with the tongs before putting them on the bowl, but the idea intrigued me and I started looking around, and found that the coals that [b]should not be used for hookah are bbq briquettes or the ones which use self lighting liquids and such[/b], but grilling charcoal (lumpwood) are okay to use. The problem is that I don't quite know what lump wood coals are, so I can't be sure if these are that. These are the coals used normally for cooking and grilling. I found them in the store room.

On a coil burner, they took about 8 minutes to light, flipped at 5 minute mark. I put them on the bowl and waited for 5 minutes, and then took my first pull, and indeed, they did not taste, as a matter of fact, they didn't smell at all during lighting them too. They must have been putting out decent heat, as I got great clouds in my third pull. Coming to the texture, these are light weight, possibly wood coals, and not as dense as my regular coals. I smoked for 10 minutes using these and they did not impart any coal taste to my tobacco and I was getting great clouds, and then I took them off and replaced them with my regular coals, because I didn't want to waste the coals I had lit, and because I first wanted to confirm here that I wasn't harming myself using these. So, are these okay to use with a hookah?
