The small pieces of wood you use to start a fire are called kindling. When you go camping, you can gather kindling, little twigs and branches, to use in a campfire.
Kindling helps a fire get going because it's small and dry, easily flammable. Once the kindling is burning, it can ignite the larger pieces of wood in your fire.
Why Use Klin Dried Kindling?
Kiln-dried logs are the best fuel to burn in your wood-burning stove because they contain less moisture than green or seasoned logs. This means that they produce more heat and burn for longer making them more economical than other types of firewood.
Kiln-dried logs will heat your room faster, burn with a brighter flame and produce less smoke than seasoned or green logs helping to minimize the build-up of harmful deposits on your chimney or lining system.
How To Light Up A Fire
Use at least two firefighters and 5-8 pieces of kindling to generate enough heat to warm your flue. Once the kindling is burning add a couple of smaller kiln-dried logs - as these burns and create a layer of embers you can add a couple of larger logs.
Reloading time will depend on the draw and size of your fireplace or wood-burning stove - normally you will need to reload every 45 minutes or so.
