How to Build a Fire 

The Ultimate Guide!

Do it in just a few steps


Put two large pieces of split wood at the base in the wood stove with a slight gap in between.


After that, ball up paper and shove in between the two logs and on top.


Then, overlap three pieces of kindling over the paper. Our kindling is usually 2″ or so in diameter and very dry.


Next, layer on two pieces of larger kindling, about the diameter of your wrist.


Next, layer on a very dry medium piece of firewood, making sure to leave room for airflow.


Light the paper, using my favorite thing ever, the Pocket Bellows to blow air onto flames as needed.


Once the fire is lit, hang around the wood stove, monitoring the fire and poking as needed. Add firewood as needed!
