    Yeah I wish I had a way to get these out. Was getting what I could with a machete.

    The best are whole logs that can be cut into 16" blocks...... Splits so pretty!

    When I was a kid a lot of people used coal or wood for heat. I used to sell fat lighter all the time. I'd cut it into splinters and tie a bundle up with baling wire and sell it to stores. Sometimes I'd trade it at Mr. Dilly's store for shotgun shells. Mr. Dillashaw would give me 3 shells per bundle.

    What's the best way to cut the really big pieces? I know I tried to cut a big step one time with a chainsaw and that didn't work out so well

    Just 18" of a 20' log we found behind the house. I bet there is 2-3 cords of fat lighter at granddaddys under the wood shed. Most all the family logged for at some point.

    I've got a couple 10" dia. x10' logs at the base camp. There are a few more logs scattered around the property that I'll drag up when those are used up.

    I cut a 8-10 inch section and split it with a hatchet as needed. Something always makes me take a smell of fresh cut fat lighter.

    When I was a kid in the sixties, my Popoo had a country store, and we sold a lot of it. We always called it "kindling." I've really never heard it called lighter before. This was in Fountain Inn. Most folks kept a fire in the fireplace and used a lot of coal like Mergie said. The kindling was magic to me, and would start a fire right up!! Hi-Gear

    Hell I've probably burned a trillion dollars worth. People always wonder how we build such good fires. 👍

    It's amazing how much upity stores sell it for. Saw a little handful bundle the other night for $12.99. If I could find a good market I would hire a messican to split it all day on a stump with a hatchet.

    Kindling can be any wood used to start a fire. Fat lighter, also known as Pitchwood by some, comes only from old pine stumps.
