How To Light Charcoal for Church Incense

Our Three Kings Quick Lighting Charcoal ignites quicker than other charcoal tabs on the market.  Premium charcoal is pure, clean and will generate a lot of heat.  The tabs ignite easily and quickly by holding a simple, small-flamed lighter or match to it.

To burn incense, use a pair of tongs to place a charcoal disc in the incense burner. Hold a flame to the charcoal until sparks have trans versed the tab. When the charcoal is fully heated, a gray, ashy soot will cover the red-hot, glowing tab. This indicates the charcoal is ready for use. Spread the incense on top of the charcoal using small spoon and enjoy the exotic fragrance released by the incense.

Burn Time of Charcoal Tabs 

A Three Kings quick-light charcoal tab takes just 20 to 30 seconds to light. Once the sparks have died, the tab is hot enough and ready for use. The 40 mm charcoal tabs we carry will burn for approximately 45 to 50 minutes.
