    I'm a 24/7 burner . . . which makes things a bit easier during the main heating season . . . but since I heat mostly with wood in the Spring and Fall I have a lot of quick, hot fires which means more starting-from-scratch fires.

    That said . . . I'm also cheap . . . I bought the 30 pack which lasted me most of the winter (although I did light a few fires the "old fashioned" way once in awhile. As mentioned . . . you split them into quarters as that's all you should need to get most fires going.

    About the same for me, maybe a few more. (I'm not as cheap as Jake:p) My son and I split a 100 ct last year, and we both have plenty to start this season.

    Not only can you use these in the Woodstock stove, you can also purchase Super Cedars at Woodstock.

    Got my samples yesterday. We'll give'em a try. I always have plenty of kindling from a good friend that makes wooden candle boxes for a craft seller so never have much problem getting a fire started, but you guys say these are all that. Maybe I'll be a believer.

    All you need is a quarter of a puck actually. If lighting a bonfire, I'd quarter them and place each section under a different area of the pile. That quarter burns plenty for any fire I've started.

    Newspaper and twigs....forget that nonsense. Never again!!!

    I do like the people who use the propane torch though. Heheheh.

    It's like my backyard burns when I put the electric leaf blower to the burn pit. That oxygen blast makes a nice blaze.

    Thank you for all the positive feedback ! If you do not receive your samples within 7-10 days be sure to comment so we can follow up.

    Try them to start your charcoal grill. They will leave no after taste as with the charcoal starting fluid, and much faster!

    Was just outside this evening visiting my neighbor. His youngest kid and that boy's wife decided to camp out back in the woods of their family farm for something to do. As the neighbor and I were talking the campers came back down the hill and went into the house to grab a snack. Apparently they had trouble getting their fire started so their plans weren't working and it was getting dark. I took a sec, walked over to my garage and grabbed a super cedar for them to use. I explained that I light the stove w/ 1/4 of one of these things, and if he can't get a fire started using the whole thing then he has no business having one!

    Went back out to the garage for a drink a bit ago and smelled smoke. Seems like the super cedar did its job for them too.

    I was never a fan of commercial fire-starters until I used these things.

    I tried them this year after finding out that I was out of lighter fluid. Now I probably wont go back to the fluid. They are great charcoal starts. Thanks for such a great product.

    I too tried them out and was hooked. I only need 1/4 to get things going with seasoned wood! No kindling required at our house - i ordered 100 a couple years ago...and have lots left after giving many away to folks looking for ways to start their grills as well as fireplaces and stoves. I use 1/8 for starting my big green egg...and 1/2 for the fire pit. Keeps my hands nice and clean compared to crumbling paper!
