One type have an accelerant - don't use the easy light ones. The other ones are fine for the snake method.

heat beads are pregnated with an accelerant to burn....its why u are supposed to leave them a while before cooking on them. I would not recommend this method with the branded heat beads unless u want to contaminate your food....lump charcoal go for your life

So the Minion method used by so many people around the world to cook low and slow with heat beads is wrong by that estimation ?

Where is the evidence for this misleading statement?

If you are talking about the smoke you get when lighting Heat Beads with a flame, it is a product of the flame igniting the odourless vapour they give off, if Heat Beads are lighting from each other they do so at a lower temperature and the vapour does not ignite, there is no smoke and no smell!
