I take a cotton ball and rub some Vaseline into it and stuff it into a straw cut the straw to length and seal both ends with a lighter and a pair of pliers. to start it up just cut it in half and use a lighter or a spark from a fire starter. it burns for quite a while
Careful what you use if you are going to cook on the fire. Plumbers glue and etc are great for fires to keep you warm (although careful of the toxic fumes) but don't cook on them. My favorite is a paper bag of but shells, like pistachios, walnuts or peanuts. They're light, light easily and after a while, you get plenty of light!
Matts right. We used to give loads of treated wood away for firewood. They use some nasties in the treatment of that wood make sure you're not cooking anything on it, bbq rather than a dutch oven and it's well vented. I heard of a family being really sick after using oleander branches in a bbq.
My latest round of fire starters are egg cartons filled with wood pellets I bought at a feed store. There uses for large animal bedding. I then poured melted wax over them. Burn hot and for quite a while.
To err is human, to really foul up requires a computer
