How to Build a Fire (Boyscount Style)

Collect Sticks

 

​Collect some fine pine branches from anywhere around the house (do not break of branches, they are green and wont burn!): Collect 4 decent hands full of branches and then a bunch of thicker ones.

Newspaper

 

Take 3 sheets of newspaper and LOOSLY crunch them up; place them in the bottom of the oven

 

Setup

 

Place the fine pine branches on top without pressing the newspaper down

Light

 

Light the newspaper in 2 or 3 places; if they appear to go out, blow gently on the paper

Build the Base

 

Once it catches, add some of the thicker pine branches and blow into the building amber

Wait ;)

 

Wait for 3 to 4 minutes. If the pine is humid, help by blowing some more.

Go for Gold

 

Once the fire is established add some small hard wood.

Door

 

Leave the door of the combustion oven slightly open for more air to get in

Add Hardwood

 

Once going well, add 1 big hardwood block and close the door with the handle.

 

To adjust the air inflow, adjust the lever. Left for slow longer burn - Right for hotter burn.

Enjoy

 

Poor a glass of wine and enjoy the fruit of your hard labour :)

How to Build a Fire (City Slicker Style)

Use Kindling

 

Kindling is available from the petrol station up the road. Alternatively collect some small-ish firewood from the pile or the surounds.

Fire Starters

 

Take 4 cubes of firestartes (supplied) and set them in the oven or fireplace. Be careful not to cover them in ash!

 

Light the Fire Starters

 

Light the cubes BEFORE you put any timber on them. Wait until they are burning well.

Put Firewood On

 

Add the firewood, starting with the smaller ones, then add some bigger ones right away too. Ensure you don't sufficate the firecubes.
