OK I will admit it, I suck at starting fires! This is coming from a guy that has a great fire pit and has between 10-15 bonfires a year. I have fires in the summer, winter and all sorts of weather. On a few occasions, I have had to call my neighbor the engineer to get the fire going! When I am able to get a small fire going, I dance around like Tom Hanks in “Castaway” and shout, “I have created FIRE!”
Well this all changed during my last bonfire! I simply opened a bag of StumpChunks poured them into my fire pit, then built up some firewood on top. With a few strategically placed matches, I had a beautiful base fire going in a matter of minutes!
I couldn’t believe how fast the fire started and what a great base it gave me to pile on the wood! StumpChunks are all natural made from New England hardwood and softwood. The creators of StumpChunks say this creates a “blast-furnace effect” which I have no idea what it means, I just now it started my fire faster than ever before!
Available at select stores and on-line the cost is roughly that of a pre-packaged fire log that never seemed to work for me. Those “fire logs” always took too long to start as they are designed for a slow burn. For now on, StumpChunks will be a permanent fixture at a Conrad bonfire.
