How about for "old" members
Have we sent you samples in the past? If not, we would be happy to send seasoned members some.
Im not familiar with them. Only firestarters available locally are the wall mart ones.
Please email your ship to address firstname.lastname@example.org and they are on the way.
Just one of many times I've read a thread and wished I lived in the USA...........
I would not only use them for firestarting, I reckon they would be useful in a survival backpack too........
You could ask this company in Germany for email@example.com We would still be happy to send you some samples. I would like you to be able to source some reasonably priced once you like! They are private labeled Super Cedars.
I just received a box of 100 that I ordered without wrapping. As attractive as their wrapping is, this is more convenient (and greener). I like them this way. I've used them three times now and I was surprised that I don't really need small kindling now at all. Done right, 1/4 of a disc will light off pretty large splits (IF they are nice and dry) With a long butane barbeque-style lighter, it's really easy to start a fire with these. If you do use small kindling, you probably don't even need 1/4 piece.
I like em too, In my opinion I still like using kindling because it lights faster and burns hotter and just gets things going much quicker. I tried to light bigger splits and they did catch but they also produced alot more smoke prior to take off. Just saying.
Not everyone can ride the "cool" bus.
Try fatwood. It's available in England, typically sold in small boxes of 1/4" - 1/2" splits, about 8" long. It doesn't light quite as easy as a SuperCedar, but it doesn't leave a mess of cedar shavings on the floor, either!
I am not a new member but could you maybe send me some?
Just would like to give them a try.
My samples are on the way just got the email back..
Thank you all at super ceders.
That is what I call "pixie dust". I use a coffee can to hold my quartered Super Cedars. On cold mornings when the coals need a little boost on reload I reach in the can and toss part of a hand full of that stuff on the coals and it is off to the races.
I love it I may need to grind up a few just to get a little pixie dust ahead!
Oh, I was just thinking about the best way to quarter these things and I just flashed on John Belushi doing a "Samurai Warrior" number on them Guess I'm showing my age a little.
I have the plastic wrapped Super Cedars and I break them into 1/4's while still in the wrapper. Keeps the pixie dust in the wrapper.
Samples just got Here Thank you.
I will go ahead and see what all the hub bub is about...
Thank you thomas, just got my samples in the mail
Just ordered me a pack of 100 SuperCedars. Thanks for floating us hearth.com'ers a discount code! We'll have some of Bart's pixie dust for Thanksgiving.
Ok I'm going to drink the kool aid (kidding) - any chance you folks would be kind enough to send a sample to Canada? These things are apparently better than sex from what I'm reading. Seriously I think my better half would love these. Sounds like a stand-up company too...
Do they leave splinters or dust fall out when you cut them? Cedar splinters are not fun. I'm curious to try them, we usually use another brand of fire starter but if these are as economical & easy as everyone says, I'm in! The less wood I have to split & less fuss for building a fire the better (tho I have it down to almost no effort to get the fire roaring).
Well, they're good, but get real...
No splinters. The pixie dust is soft and nice and smells good . But you should break or cut them over something to catch it and then save it in a tin or something to sprinkle later.
I put my super cedars in a nice metal box and just break them over it so the dust stays in the box.
I just shot them an email to try them out. But looking at them, I would think they could be better if they were long an thin instead of round. Take the same amout of material, and shape it 1" x 1" by 8" or something like that. Now it would be reaching further across a fire box.... ?
