Im not sure if the previous reviewer got a bad case or something but I have been using black diamond for about a year now and they are by far the best coals ever. I've never had the break apart or anything like that and they last a lot longer than any other coal i've tried
Hello, I have worked at a hookah lounge for 2 years and have many more years in the world of smoking. I do not say the following lightly. Black Diamond Hookah Charcoals are BY FAR the ABSOLUTE WORST coals I have ever had the DISPLEASURE of working with.
#1 They stay active the least amount of time, even when compared to fast lighting coals.
#2 They break extremely easily. On numerous occasions the coals simply burst, yes burst into tiny little pieces making the order line come to an incredibly slow pace.
and my absolute biggest concern is
#3 They stink like h***. They turned my backroom into a bathroom. Customers refused to sit close to the kitchen because of the unpleasant smell. The lounge myself and others also go home with an incredible stink on our clothes and bodies that is new to even veteran smokers who have smoked longer than I have been alive.
Number three is also the reason why my dormant asthma returned and I am finding myself having mild to severe chest pains whenever I smoke, so much so that I have quit smoking all together and the lounge is in fear of losing me, it's "hookah chef."
I will be posting this review EVERYWHERE these coals are sold until the point is made. These coals are absolutely terrible and can possibly KILL you.
DO NOT BUY THESE COALS.
