You should try this

If you like small fires but don't have a lot of firewood.This really worked. Get a seasoned log about 26" to 32" long and about 10" across. Take a chainsaw and cut down to about 5" from the bottom. Make three cuts. It should look something like this:

Then put a little bit of lighter fluid or kerosene down the slots you cut. Put small dry twigs on top. Light the twigs. Sit back and have a few beers and before you know it you got this:

Once the flames went down and log was hot enough we got our iron skillet, peeled and sliced some potatoes. Put butter in skillet then the potatoes. They were very good. You could make about anything you wanted.  Looked like this:

If you were going camping or had a fire pit in your yard and did not have a lot of wood these will work as a small campfire. The one we tried lasted about 3 1/2 hours. A friend told me when he tried it his lasted about 6 hours. He did not know what kind of wood it was.The length of time it burns would depend on how big and what kind of wood you used. Another benefit is once it gets going you do not have to tend to it.

You are welcome to all the potatoes you want. While you are eating them I will get out my chainsaw and make you a few of these neat burning logs!
