Hey Gang,

The one thing missing from my shipment was a box of fire starters.  What are my options, and can I get them at Walmart or Fred Meyer?

Thanks!

    Go to any place that sells charcoal (Home Depot, Menards, etc.) and get an $8. electric starter, they work great!

    I third the torch....very quick and easy. I have the Bernzomatic with the hose and trigger.

    You should wear safety glasses though, for sparks.

  • Found some Diamond brand fire starters at the grocery store for $1.98. There are 8 to a pack and I only needed a third of one to get it going. I'd call that a good investment.

  • I use a Mapp Gas torch.  It will cause some popping and sparks so be careful if you go with a torch.

    I use the cubes or other type like that.  If I don't have those on hand I do the oil/paper towel method.  No problems at all.  I may get an electric one,  but don't like the fire hazard.  What if I forget it in there?

  • I got a pack of fire starters when I bought my XL. I cut them in quarters. The box had 24 starters. I can get 96 fires out of one box.
  • Rutland Safe Lite--   144 starters for around $12 at Ace Hardware in Atlanta.  Great price
