why not just go outside with a blowtorch
burn down an entire tree
and then chip away at it when you need coals?

just make sure its a dead tree first.
its hard to burn a live one down
besides... its just wrong to burn now live trees

In theory, using coals of burning tree would work....

there is an issue about what tree you use..... not all trees are well suited for that, they contain high levels of chemicals or single harmful elements.

You can rule out evergreens.

Maybe hickory or some reaaaaallllllyyy seasoned oak. Scalli used Mesquite at one point.

Hey. what about coconut hulls?

I ran out of coals too and the shops closed because of snow storm. So I fired up some kingsfords for half an hour to get them real hot. Was able to actually get some decent non-coal tasting smoke for a minute or two. But kingsfords ash way too much and smothers itself. I'm having to switch to a new piece every minute or so. Then I got lazy and tried just ashing an old coal and blowing to get it hot again. Needless to say, I've got my little hookah fix for now, but also feel a little nauseous. Also, I died.

yeah, pure charcoal just made from straight wood should be alright, ive dont it before out of a fire pit during the summer, mightve been the wood I was using but it was pretty gross. tasted like moss. but i figure if you have a good clean dry piece of would it should work. Hookah historians: what did people smoke with back in 1500 anyways? i'm guessing just plain woodcoals.
