The egg cartons that I get were free, I came across them by accident, we were in PA buying meats at a country type store, the egg cartons hold 18 eggs and they were piled up about 3' from the floor. I enquired about them, the store manager said all they do is burn them up, but I could have all I could carry so I did. I have enough to make over 8,000 starter.

I sometimes place a small pile of Match-Light charcoal in the fire ring, then stack my fire wood on top. Light it with a match or gas lighter.

Sit back and enjoy.

C-4 works great, if you can find it. Wally World doesn't seem to carry it.

I've actually seen the explosive, C4 burn. It was on top of a burning drum of diesel fuel. It was the only time I've had to abandon a fire truck...and RUN! (when you see the bomb squad running...you know you are in the wrong place!)

With the type of fire starter I make, there is very little cost involved, I thought I would past the Idea and the savings on and it's safer then fuels.

My method is to cut/chop up a Duraflame log (or a similar item) and store the pieces in a plastic bag. Works for me and it is a lot less work.

I use the cardboard egg cartons with dryer lint and candle wax too. We used to make these in girl scouts. I keep the egg carton on my dryer and when I do a load of laundry I just empty the lint right into the egg carton. Then I just need to add the wax.
