    I ordered 30 over the weekend I figure that should last me a long time with the BK since we only have to light them a few times a year. ;)

    I may have to order some more. I keep giving them to people and they keep ordering them and not giving any back. :mad:

    I've never used a super cedar but I do use those half egg shaped fire starters that I get from lowers. I usually cut them it half so they usually last me a long time
    30 of those should last you lucky BK owners a lifetime:(

    The box of 30 I bought lasted me 2 years, have 3/4 of one left. I figure I gave about 10 of them away to boot but did use some homemade fire starters in between that I made with the kids for something to do. Two of the starters I gave out to guys at work this week. From what I heard back, it sounds like Thomas will have a couple more orders to ship out east.

    The box of 100 I ordered arrived two days ago in good shape. It's time to burn >>

    Feels weird replying to myself, but just placed the order today for a 100 pack at about $0.60 per puck with our discount. Broken into quarters that's a great way to spend $0.15 per new fire!!!

    Also just received notification of shipment, so really impressed with the service as well.

    Yep, I figure my homemade ones cost about $0.09 per...... for 6 cents more, and the fact that they work better than any combination of materials I've tried putting into a homemade one, it's a no-brainer.

    For the cost of one chain for my smallest saw a season's worth of restarts, which I do a lot in the Tropics of Virginia, is a no brainer.

    I am about ready to quit talking about Super Cedars until Thomas starts giving them to me for free. Good grief, he put my recommendation on his homepage. I am thinking commission. ;lol

    Use'em. They work.

    Thomas runs a class act here. He sells the best starters, the best densified pressed logs and from what I hear some darn good firewood too.

    Are you saying you can use these to directly start decent sized splits?
    I like to get the firebox sort of preheated with a pile of paper and a log house of kindling. I'm interested what the technique is with these.

    Mind you once the winter hits here there aren't a lot of restarts going on.

    If the splits are nice and dry, yes. Mind you I am using softwood, typically doug fir. I can set a pair of 3" splits N/S about 2" apart. Put a chunk or two of SuperCedar between them, then put some more 2-3" splits on top, Lincoln log style and ignite. The fire will take off on its own in short order.

    Pretty much the same for me. There are members here that just load the whole sucker for the night fire N/S with a piece of SS under the middle splits and rock and roll. And I have done it too.

    I'll be your huckleberry. No kindling. I load the stove like I mean it, light the starter and shut the door.

    They're here (sort of - package is sitting at a UPS depot in Michigan, with some other parts). I'm sending my wife over to pick them up on the weekend (heh heh.....::-))....

    The package shipped immediately after placing my order - took a few days to arrive (as expected). Daytime temps are supposed to stay in the high 60's to low 70's this week and into the weekend so I probably won't get to test drive them for a bit...

    Thanks to all for trying our Super Cedar firestarters. We are still receiving requests from new and old members who have not requested their free samples. I also want to thank all the Hearth members who have placed orders, I see quite a few using the hearth13 discount code.

    Have a safe burning season !

    I've used a few pieces since I received my order. Honestly I expected a more dense product so I was a bit skeptical before using them. After using a 1/4 in an outside fire along with a 1/4 used in the stove a couple times I'll be a lifetime user of these things. I was amazed how easy they light off and how long they burn really surprised me for only using a 1/4.

    For my limited use of them they seem like a great/quality product! Good job guys!

    Same here. This past weekend I did a test drive too. I built a sort of "middle-out" fire that I tried to describe in another thread. Basically wanted to see if a dog's breakfast fire would light up with no huge effort. Stuck a quarter of the puck in the center of an assortment of splits, lit it and closed the door, as others have suggested they do. Something like 10 minutes later and it was rolling. A nice clean easy start up (and on a warm day, with a possible questionable draft...?).

    Next step is to have my better half build a fire and use one of these. The usual frustration she's had in the past (paper / kindling fizzles out) should disappear. Very nice product.

    Best starter by far. I generally don't buy anything I can make, but these just can't be beat.
    Gave away more to friends and family than I used in the stove. Great for campfires too.
    Just ordered 100 more.

    I think Ive mentioned before that I get more deadfall branches on my lot than I oculd ever use up as kindling...

    But from the time I won a few sample SCs in a contest here last year Ive never again used kindling. They really are just that good. One big box could last some 24/7 folks an entire lifetime.



    Deadfall goes into the backyard firepit stack now.

    Ok, I'm going to sound like a marketing sock puppet but what can I say?

    This stuff is amazing. I guess since it's from Washington State, it must have nuclear waste in it to make it work like this? JK!

    Using semi-seasoned wood (15-16% from my lot… I wish it was drier, but that's what I have…), I went from ignition to secondary burns in my Morso in 30 minutes. I've never seen anything like it.
    No more struggles with newspaper for me. Fatwood has no comparison. Next time I will try burning only 1/2 a disk and see how it goes.

    Man you are lucky on the wood front. I wish I could get down to 15 - 16%. Mine is all 19 - 21% and doesn't seem to want to go much lower. Maybe it's the climate in Tenn.

    If that measurement is on the inside face of a fresh split that is very well seasoned wood IMO.
