Dura flame log and we throw some charcoal briquets in the bottom of the fire pitt. Makes for a hotter fire that will burn longer.

We just shake our heads...my husband puts the wood in a teepee shape - then lights a propane torch, puts the lit part of the torch in the wood, waits for the wood to light and pulls it out. He has done this for 30+ years - obviously he was never a scout.

Hehe. I use duraflame logs. My dad has a way with campfires, he can get about anything to start. I apparently didn't inherit that gene.

I pick up tiny shavings from the campfire area, light them, add bits of cut shavings and small kindling, then a bit larger and put a bigger piece on each side. By now, it's a nice kindling fire, and a few bigger pieces go in next.

If I can find a piece of pitch off a tree, that is fair too.

Like others that use fire starters.. for me, it's part of the ritual of camping. Also, it's a great skill to teach your little ones.

LOL.......charcoal briquets leftover from dinner are thrown in the fire pit followed by crumpled newspaper and various sized wood atop. Easy peasy.
