Simple method-wad up a couple pieces of newspaper into a ball; make a teepee around it with thin dry sticks of kindling. Light the paper in several places around the "teepee" and when it gets going a little blow gently down low on the flame until the wood catches fire. Now add thicker pieces of wood to it and even build a square frame of logs around it, gradually covering the flames OR just continue to put thicker pieces in the tepee and you should be golden.

I'm probably the laziest of all when it comes to fires. 2 box's of Duroflame logs. Stack 3 in the fire ring and light them. Clean burning, last about 3 to 4 hours and there's nothing left of them when done. Told ya......I'm pitiful.

[QUOTE=Maxhise;935741]I cheat big time. Typically I just use a propane torch that was made for asphalt roofing. I do not need paper, twigs, kindling, or even dry wood for that matter. Just stack the logs in Lincoln log fashion and hit em with the torch.


lol. You need to throw some used motor oil on it. That will give a bit more oooph to it.

We use a piece of Pine knot it lights right up and gets a fire going quick. It's free we find it in the wood on our property. It's from old Pine trees that have died and the tree sap concentrate and is very flammable. Just takes a little piece and a spark will almost light it.

+1, with the match light variety even the crappy wood they sell at the campground will burn.

Won't start a wet Log, but will ignite reasonably dry sticks. Try one.

Go to Home Depot or similar. Get a box of fire muffins (what my son calls them) - which are small pieces of pressed sawdust. Then add larger pieces of wood from finger diameter size up. Light muffin - enjoy!
