How to build a fireNot everyone is confident with their fire starting abilities. Some of us just have problems building and starting , a fire. Whether you are starting a fire for your indoor or outdoor fireplace, a fire pit for your backyard or patio or even a campfire we have tips on how you can make your experience go smoothly.
As we all know, a fire requires a few things to be able to burn and keep burning well. Four of the items that a fire needs to start burning and maintain burning is: Tender, Kindling, Fuel and Oxygen.
One of the easiest and best ways to start a fire is to replace the tender with fire starters. We are going to be giving you tips on building and starting fires with Fire Starters. We carry a couple of different kinds that are available for purchase. These include Fatwood and Lighting-Nuggets.
What is FatwoodSo now you are asking - exactly what is Fatwood and Lighting Nuggets.
Fire Building Tips with Fire Starters:
Place two or three fatwood sticks in the center of your firepit or fireplace. With a long handles stick match or lighter (lighter work best),
light the end of the sticks. All you need to do is get the ends going and the rest will catch with a few minutes.
Place one nugget round side down and light the top flat edge. It is guaranteed to burn for at least 15 minutes, reaching 480 degrees with a 8 Plus inch flame. This will start your kindling and your logs.
First arrange your kindling in teepee fashion over your fatwood or lighting nuggets.
If a fire at any time seems to start to die, even when you have unburned logs, you may need to move the logs around a bit for the fire to get more oxygen. This is a time when you will need to use your fire poker or log turners. Simple move the logs around and you will have a fire glowing again.
