    Thanks, some good info here. We've been using paper egg cartons with wood shavings from the chain saw and melting wax over them. Tempting to try mixing in the petroleum jelly to see if they burn longer. Also going to have to make some of yours. They would take up less space.

    Wow, can elaborate on that? How would you use it to start a fire?
