Q wrote:To make a "cowboy candle" take a round of firewood, preferably about double the normal 16 inches in length. Stand on end and cut 2 or more slots similar to how you would cut a pizza. Cut about 3/4 of the way down. Harder wood requires more slots than soft wood. Squirt a little BBQ lighter fluid into the center then light. The slots allow air flow that will keep it burning. Works great! Here are a couple pics.
PS: You can set a pan or pot right on top of it and use it for cooking.

It has a bad habit of making things flammable or explosive that you would never think of being dangerous. However, I am a closet pyromaniac and those fireworks are awesome. I just dont have the stones to try it myself.
