    IMG_20130507_203018.jpg Was reading through old threads about fire starters. My neighbor turned me on to these. They are about 2 bucks and once you open the container just cut them into 2x2 chunks and store in a ziplock. It wil light with just a spark. Add a few pieces of dry wood and you have a fire. Just an option for folks on a budget

    Geez... As moderators, I would think you would be pleased that we are using this site. There is a saying ... you learn something every day...maybe not the masters like you guys, but for us who are starting out and enjoying burning and trying to learn as we go, we are..... Now please don't hold this criticism against me, I know you we're only joking..... Well sorta ;-)

    We are joking. Actually glad for the OP to post about a lighter not seen here before. Just chuckling because we know it will turn into a nine mile long thread with numerous Super Cedar posts. ;lol

    This is not a fire starter, it's a BBQ charcoal substitute. It looks like a wide disk variation on Sterno (gelled ethanol).

    In all the fire-starter threads on the forum in recent months, although there have been some interesting concoctions tossed into stoves, I don't recall reading anything in the threads around this particular stuff (sterno). It might be a non issue but got my curiosity going - anyone have any real concerns...? Would be good to let the OP know (I could just be making noise here).

    This product should not be used to start a fire. It is not intended for that purpose at all. It is for outdoor use only. It also contains a toxic poison.

    http://www.grillwithbic.com/flamedisk/instructions.asp

    Read your stove manual for acceptable fire starting info.
