    The small brown paper lunch sacks that I filled with wood shavings from my shop have turned out the be trememdous firestaters.Since I have another 10+ gallons to empty out of my DC, I'll sack up 10 or 20 more. You just put the bag in the stove, pile smaller splits ontop of it, and light the bag. the shavings burn and because they are so loose, as they burn, the ash falls away to expost more shavings. One small sack is enough get the firest started, The bags are standard size lunch bags that the wife picked up from Target.
