    That is a good price. Take a small napkin, put a little EVOO on it. Place in the middle of the lump and lite.

    This is what Mike is talking about. Cooking oil works just fine and light the lump fast.

    Using Paper Towel and Oil to light the lump.

    make your own.... melt some paraffin and some sawdust in an old pot( stir it up).... pour it out on a sheet pan or foil...break off a piece... or use some old ice cube trays and make fire starting cubes..rr
  • JLOCKHART29JLOCKHART29 Posts: 5,897
    I use the starter sticks also just another brand and do the old cooking oil and a corner of towel trick in a pinch. The Ozark Oak is my personal choice for lump. Use it long and you will be throwing rocks at MOST of the others! ;)
