trying a different way to start

Grab a piece if paper towel and the oil and SWMBO said use the left over cooked fat from the stove. So I grabbed the can and wiped the paper towel with a spoon full of fat and I think it works better then the oil. If anyone has some lying around try it, it worked great kust to let you know.

    That is a great tip.  Always comes through when camping or at eggfests.  Even at home when I use Pam to lightly coat the CI.  Tie the paper towel in a loose half-knot and toss it in.

    Great idea if you use oil and towels to start. Not many places have bio-oil recycle so it just ends up in the landfill. Used oil stores in the freezer or fridge until you need it.

    @Skiddymarker I have been out of starter cubes for awhile now and no stores around me have them yet so I've been doing it with oil for a bit. I have the fat saved for hunting but i'll be using it this way too.
