"Fat Wood" (Naturally Oily Wood) has been used for generations as an all natural and HIGHLY effective fire starter. The wood is long lasting, hot burning, and helps get larger and even damp wood to catch fire. Hand Harvested from the stumps of felled pine trees the wood is naturally full of pitch and resins, which means a large amount of fuel is trapped within the wood fibers, and ready to be released for our benefit, during the combustion process. Fat Wood is more flammable, hotter burning and longer lasting than most other wood products of similar size, and requires no treatment or special processing to achieve these results. It is an all natural byproduct of the lumber industry, and a fantastic renewable resource! We use it to make lighting rocket stoves and other alternative or biomass cook stoves even easier than they already are! (A little goes a VERY long way in these stoves, mere shavings will do ya!) Also, it's great for overcoming damp timber and fuel in any fire lighting endeavor just two sticks will get a full sized fire place or wood burning stove going strong. Plus it smells great! Try some today, you will love it! (Whether you just want to try a three pound pack or buy in bulk and grab a 35 pound box, you will be happy with the results!)
