Im trying to find incense charcoal that does not emit noxious odors, nor billow smoke. Im having trouble doing this.
I understand that “self-igniting” charcoal can have a lot more odor than non, but almost everything I look at is “self-igniting”.
Im almost thinking about breaking apart a basic charcoal briquette for the grill, sizing it to the bottom of the censor, and lighting it with a jet lighter. Honestly I was expecting incense charcoal to be at least the same quality as a giant bag of grilling charcoal (which Ive never smelled an odor from, and have NEVER seen billow smoke), but it doesnt seem to be that way…
Experimented a little bit with heating the base of the censor under a candle to melt the myrrh resin, which just smells amazing, but am having a lot of trouble maintaining the required heat inside the censor, even with a glass lid on top.
I feel a relatively cleanly burning charcoal round would just be easier.
