    Well, you pretty much have to break them anyway because it only takes a quarter of one to do the trick. In fact, I break the quarter in half and use both pieces in two places between two splits. Works faster. But I could see how a long thin one would break more easily.


    EDIT: It's amazing that these SuperCedar threads get more posts than about any other recurring topic. It's like they're candy or something.

    Pretty much my thought. I got some samples recently and didn't really see the differentiation that some here observe. I found that two sticks of fat wood gave me a quicker fire across the entire fire box and for a pretty low cost and they are easy to integrate in my fire starting method. I do find it admirable that they send the samples out to you with pretty much no hassle at all. I'd probably revisit the super cedars if they were sticks.

    I've been using fat wood for the last year, and prefer its lack of "pixie dust", but that costs at least $1/pound in 50 lb quantities. I bought a 10 pound box this summer for $24, and I'll use the last of it tonight. I don't think I've had more than 20 fires this fall, which puts my cost over $1/fire, at the 10 pound pricing.

    Super Cedars are $66/100, and you get 400 fires out of those 100 pucks. So, while they're my second favorite method, they're far cheaper than my favorite.

    More importantly, Thomas is a stand up guy, offering to replace one member's previous purchase for free, when it was damaged by a recent flood. I like supporting companies like that.

    Probably something in the packaging. It's cute and they offer customizable labels.
    Maybe take it a step further and hire Paris Hilton to endorse them.
    Sales would without a doubt quadruple.
    And she could expand her brands past apparel and branch out into the hearth industry.
    Can't wait. Oh and I blame my comment on bag of hammers comment above...somehow sex,candy painted a image in my mind I don't care to share.

    lol - just don't keep the fire-starters in the nightstand top drawer.

    hey, if you need to purge that image, just jump over to the "ash pan" thread and check out BrowningBAR's ash pile pic - that one will shock you back for a while...
