I've got a wood burning fireplace insert that I've used for years. Very
recently I saw a thread here that included the suggestion of making pine
cone fire starters.
My lot has several pine trees so pine cones are quite plentiful.
Grabbed a few dried pine cones and tested them as a fire starter.
Any real difference between using them and the so called "fat wood" fire
starters sold commercially?
Yes. If everyone used pine cones, the "fat wood" suppliers would go out of
business. The workers would get laid off and be collecting welfare. They
could not afford new cars so GM and Ford would start losing money and laying
off workers. Our taxes would increase to cover their medical expenses and
they will go up because their kids won't be eating nutritious foods and
they'd get sick from it. The population would increase because, not working
all day, the fat wood guys would be home reproducing. That will increase
the burden on our schools in six years.
Damn, you are one greedy SOB for causing all that damage just to save a few
bucks. Have some compassion!
