Just a Firestarting Tip

I don't remember whether or not I've posted this before so please forgive me if I have.

When looking for firestarting materials, don't overlook a fantastic source of tinder that you'll find in nearly every home.

When you get a delivery pizza, it comes on a grease-soaked piece of cardboard. That grease is much like the Vaseline you put into a cotton ball to help it burn longer and in less than ideal conditions.

I cut every piece of pizza cardboard into strips and shove those into my charcoal chimney for starting the grill. I have used them with great success in the woods too.

Think of it as recycling...

Thanks for reading,
