Hi Everyone, We are pretty new to wood stoves and really appreciate having such a knowledge base as this to help us with our questions. I'm wondering if anyone can tell me, do homemade fire starters such as egg carton cells packed with sawdust and petroleum jelly create more creosote than if you start your fires with plain old newspaper? It seems that a petroleum product like that could create that real sticky black smoke that I'd imagine would best be avoided. But those starters seem to be pretty popular. So I'm wondering what you all think. Thanks in advance for any thoughts.
