Ignite Coal In A Microwave

34 posts in this topic
I use a pyrex bowl to heat the real charcoal wood peices in the microwave for 3 minutes, until the coal is glowing white with heat, it keeps the flavour pure on the shisha, and is easy to do because the microwave is doing the hard work.

Any of you guys tried this method?

be carefull you microwave might explode and the charcoal starts to burn. There were several threads about this thema on a german hookah board.

microwaves + charcoal = peter griffin or homer simpson bad idea

Isn't the principle behind microwaves based on accelerating the water particles in the food to generate heat? I don't know for sure, but I am pretty certain that my coals do not have any real moisture content....

We do em all the time at my dorms.

Our microwave is used a lot more for lighting coconut coals than warming food.

yeah but the working theory behind that is to bombard the food with extremely high wavelength microwaves... which will actually heat things enough o ntheir own...



...so anyone ever try smoking a cotton ball? laugh.gif
i wonder if those guys are related
