Firewood

Anyone use duraflame logs for camp fires? I found some camp fire duraflame logs on clearance today . So I thought I`d try them next summer .

We keep a supply on hand. Given the growing number of areas forbidding the movement of wood this allows us to always have what we need for a nice fire. We also travel with a folding fire bowl and these logs always burn down to ash.

Just check to make sure they are 100% natural wood. You don't want to cook anything or roast marshmallows with chemicals coming off the fire. It should say on the package if it is safe for using in that way.

Not Duraflame, but I tried Wood Bricks. Ultimately, they worked but it didn't have the same "feel" as a real fire.

I stopped carrying them.

Do those Duraflame logs still have the warning on the wrapper "Caution: Flammable!"

That always cracks me up...like putting, "Caution: Wet!" on bottled water

Sorry, didn't mean to derail your question, but I think they're fine for any outdoor fire as long as you don't cook anything over them.

I cut them into 1-2" thick disks and use them as fire starters. Yes the ban on moving firewood is a pain, but the consequences of doing it is much larger.

I have used them as a fire starter since most of the wood at the campgrounds is hard to get going. But we dont cook over it.
