Fatwood is nature's best kindling! Loaded with organic resins that ignite instantly, our Resin-Rich, Easy-Start Fatwood Fire-Starter Kindling burns with an intense heat and gets fires going quickly! Just two sticks and a single match is all it takes.

Every 8"L stick of our resin rich Fatwood is hand-selected and harvested from naturally felled trees (storms, lightning, old age).

Fatwood fire starting sticks have an indefinite shelf life – fatwood even ignites when wet! Ideal for wood stoves, fireplaces, campfires, chimeneas, firepits and more. Makes a great gift any time of year. Don't run out – buy in bulk and save, too!

• Fatwood fire starter kindling sticks
• 100% all-natural fatwood is loaded with resins for fast fire starting

Great fire starter. Probably only one stick to get a quick started fire. I like to use 3, it lights my moist and/or larger pieces of kindling every time. Good to know it has been harvested with minimal or no impact to our environment. Well deserves 5 STARS.

I have bought this 35 pound box of fatwood twice. Having a woodstove that doesn't quite make it through the night, it is great to be able to start up a fire again in the cold morning with just one or two sticks of fatwood and some small logs. I throw a small bag of fatwood into my car to have on hand for camping and picnics as well.

Messy, Ineffective
Comments about Product:
The resin leached out of these fire starters, covering the brick of my fireplace in a sappy, filthy mess, which given that it's resin, is nearly impossible to remove. Then my fire gave out in 7 minutes. Messy and useless? No thanks. When attempting to return the items, chat representative Jenny Shifflett was unable to assist and disconnected prior to resolving any of my concerns.

Comments about Product:
We needed some of this to go with our new Grate Wall of Fire grate, which is more of a vertical design and needs small pieces of wood to get the fire started. This really gets the fire going! We use with a small DuraFlame fire starter block. Only disappointment was that it came in a cardboard box; we had a wooden crate, however, so we use that to stack it in.

Nice, But No Free Shipping
Comments about Product:
These are good fat sticks. I buy them from Plow & Hearth only because they are made in Georgia and I want to support American products. But Plow & Hearth never seems to have free shipping on this item, and shipping really jacks up the price. (However, at certain times of the year, at least they offer 20% off of this item.) By contracts, L.L. Bean always has free shipping, but its fat sticks come from Honduras. That's the only reason I don't buy from them.

Comments about Product:
We heat our 200 year farm house exclusively with wood. I can only imagine that past residents used fatwood to start fires. This is one of the best deals I have ever found; I bought 3 x 35# boxes. When you use wood to heat, it is important to be able to get it going as fast as possible. P&H fatwood fills the bill. If you watch for sales and shipping deals, you can't beat it. I will continue to buy my fatwood from P&H.

If it's too thick, split it!
Comments about Product:
I love fatwood for starting fires - never need newspaper any more. I always split the pieces into 6-10 smaller pieces anyway, so the thickness doesn't matter to me. By splitting it, you get a hotter, bigger fire that gets the kindling burning in no time. And, as a bonus, it's even fun to do.

Best Fatwood Around
Comments about Product:
Over the years I have ordered fatwood from Plow and Hearth but it has been awhile. When I ran out, I bought some locally. Wow, what a difference. The local took more sticks to light a fire and they appeared to be dried out. The pieces were extremely irregular sized and they were SO expensive for what I got. This time I placd an order for 35 pounds from Plow and Hearth as the value is incomparable with anyone else. (I know, I checked everywhere locally and online). It was shipped quickly and the much better quality.

Seem to have changed
Comments about Product:
I have been purchasing these for a number of years and have always been very happy with them... until the last batch. I had a terrible time getting the last batch to burn. (Ironically -- and frustratingly -- it was a larger order than my previously purchases.) Once I finally got a piece to light and STAY lit, it burned as well as always, but I would often have to burn through an entire long fireplace match for a single piece of fatwood (As someone else mentioned, the pieces are thicker than before, but I don't know whether that has anything to do with the flammability issue or not.)

Although I have always been happy with these before, and would previously have recommended it without hesitation, I am now somewhat reluctant to reorder. If I do, it will be a small order and I will send it back immediately if I encounter the same problem. Hopefully the last batch was just an anomaly.

Sticks Too Large
Comments about Product:
I've ordered Fatwood for many years, and I'm very disappointed in the last batch. They are now cutting the pieces in much larger diameter, so that now I must buy twice as much. To start a fire, the diameter needs to only be about 3/8", but the pieces are now typically 3/4" and sometimes over 1", which is a waste and makes it too expensive. But I'm sure they sell more wood that way.

A Must for Us
Comments about Product:
We have a wood stove with two 45 degree angles, which means the flue has to be warmed in order to start a non-smoking fire. I use fire starter squares, fatwood and cedar to get the first load going. Some of our wood isn't the best and if it's a bit wet, the fire can smolder and go out. I add more fatwood when I see that happening, which keeps things going until I can achieve a good burn. We've had a lot of fires with the cold this year, and some fire building challenges. I highly recommend keeping a good supply of fatwood on hand for those trying times! It's awesome!

Comments about Product:
I tried this in my wood stove and was not totally impressed. Instructions included in the carton on the best way to use this would be helpful. I tried it in my wood fireplace insert and had to reignite it. There was some ash in the bottom from a previous fire (cold) so perhaps it was a bit smothered. I will give it another try but more instruction would be good. I doubt whether 2 sticks would start a fire real well.

Necessary when the seasoned wood is gone
Comments about Product:
My knee went out, and I had surgery. Though I live on a large wooded acreage with plenty of free kindling ("lighter pine"), I couldn't get to it and, worse, I didn't have my usual supply of seasoned wood. Wow. This fatwood gets even the not-quite-seasoned wood going in a jiffy. A single stick of it is all I need to get my woodstove going, so although I hate paying for something I usually get for free, this is an economical route. In fact, I'm a bit tired of cutting up lighter pine and may indulge in P&H's fatwood from now on.

Comments about Product:
It is so much easier to start my stove with Fat Wood than with HUGE amounts of newspaper. I no longer need to bother with kindling since Plow Hearth's 35lb boxes of Fat Wood are at prices that are low enough to allow me to use as much Fat Wood as I need. What a pleasure

Product great...Shipping lousy!
Comments about Product:
We were excited to get this for my mother-in-law, and ordered on 12/16/13, and was supposed to arrive on 12/20, plenty of time for Chrismas Eve. It shipped on 12/17, and I received it on 12/26 about 8 pm. I had been calling and tracking for a week or so. I suppose UPS lost it, and since it was for a gift on 12/24 and didn't arrive in time we had to make excuses. Very dissapointing. Oh well, I guess it's a good product, just give yourself several weeks to ship. Do not go by the dates P & H promises. Order much earlier.

Fatwood not so FAT
Comments about Product:
I bought 20 pounds of fatwood from Plow and Hearth two years a go and it worked as advertised. I even used some of the same fatwood last year left over from the year before. The fatwood I bought this year is hard to light and will not stay lit. I read poor reviews on the fatwood before I bought it but couldn't believe it was that bad. I had to decide for myself. I am a believer now, I don't think I will buy fatwood from Plow and Hearth next year. Most things I buy from Plow and Hearth are ok but not their fatwood.

Comments about Product:
I used this product for the first time tonight in a wood stove along with kindling. The kindling tends to burn quickly and sometimes doesn't really ignite the larger logs. This product stays lit for a long time so it works with the larger pieces of wood. I don't have to get up and move the wood around to get the logs to really catch fire!

Great Stuff!
Comments about Product:
I am new to fatwood and was sceptical about it's effectiveness. Now I wish I'd tried it years ago - this stuff really works. When building my first fire with it I still didn't believe 2 sticks would work, so I used 4 with a lot of paper. Now I'm only using two with just a couple wads of newspaper to ignite it under my logs. I still shake my head when I watch how quickly and effectively it works. I'm a believer! The only drawback originally was that my dogs enjoyed the pleasant smell as much as I did and wanted to take them out of the box to chew, but now they seem to have lost interest.

Makes My LIfe So Much Easier
Comments about Product:
I tried this for the first time in 2011, my second winter in my new house. I live alone and am disabled, so I was hoping to make fire starting a little easier since my wood stove is my primary source of heat and New Hampshire winter mornings are COLD. I like it very much. I wouldn't compare it with commerically-made firestarters that ignite instantly with a woosh, this is different. It takes several seconds to for it to catch on from the match (this varies piece to piece) but then it stays lit which gives the firewood time to catch without a ton of paper and sticks. I am extremely stingy (aka poor!) so I only use one, maybe two per fire. Using it sparingly really makes it last a long time! I generally supplement with smaller wood, kindling or smaller sizes before adding large wood. I suppose you could skip kindling entirely, I just haven't tried it since fatwood and kindling combined makes the process even quicker. But I can say I use MUCH less kindling, only a few peices as opposed to a handful. I don't need a bunch of paper now either. Being disabled with a muscular condition, I am not always able to bring in wood as needed and although I do my best to keep it covered, it inevitably gets a little damp from time to time after a fresh storm. The fact that these fatwood pieces stay lit for good amount of time helps even slightly damp pieces catch on without too much effort. This is a product that I consider a bit of a luxury and I wait carefully for sales and promotions to order it, but it makes my life so much easier that I wouldn't want to be without it. And knowing it's sourced from naturally fallen trees and not a part of the lumber industry lets me use it without guilt.

Love this fatwood!
Comments about Product:
This fatwood is great, lights a quick blazing fire with our oak firewood. We use our large fireplace as the main source of heat, so we use it a lot, and this is by far the best way to start it. No piles of newspaper to store for fire starting, and minimal kindling is needed, so we have room for the multiple cords of wood we use. In the large fire place we use about 6 to 8 pieces in a cold fireplace, or just 1 or 2 if there are embers to start a fire with ease.

It just takes 3 or 4 sticks to get the fireplace started and I have a great fire for the evening. Of course, you need to know how to build a fire. The fat wood is a great booster getting your fire started for the evening. One 35 lb box of fat wood should get you through the winter.

Reliable & natural way to start a fire!
Comments about Product:
Once I discovered fatwood, I have come to rely on it for our winter fires! It's a natural source of fuel that is super reliable at that crucial stage of firelighting. Just when the tinder burns out, it keeps the flame strong until the kindling takes light. Then add the next size wood and you're good to go! Highly recommended!

Master Fire Maker will be your new title when you use these! I've used them for years with complete success when we're camping outdoors or in one of our two fireplaces. Never get dizzy from blowing on a fire ever again. And they make a great gift. Here in the hot desert, we're ecstatic to have cold weather so we can use these starters for a quick fire. Never ever use the chemical-laden products to get your roaring fire started.

This fatwood has made my life a lot easier when it comes to starting my woodstove.

I have tried to buy from competitors, but I feel like plow and hearth has the best because it consistently burns rather than some pieces burning better than others.

Years ago I loved fatwood, 2 or 3 sticks and you had your fire blazing. this stuff today is nothing more than dried pine sticks. I'm so disappointed you cant even imagine. It takes 10 t0 12 pieces to do the job. Heck you are better off saving your money and cutting your own kindling. This stuff doesn't even haave pungent pine odor or sap wet feeling that fat wood use to have.

Fatwood is a Staple Here
Comments about Product:
Lighting a fire in windy, damp weather is difficult, even in a good woodstove. Fatwood has helped me overcome the problem of poor draw when the chimney and firebox are cold, and the winter winds are at gale force. It is *always* windy in the winter where I live, and my primary source of heat is a wood-fueled furnace. Fatwood is the best tool I've found to get the fire going quickly, and it was a life saver when ice storms took out the power for two weeks. In addition to ensuring heat from the furnace, it was essential to maintaining an outdoor flame in the fire ring for melting ice for water and the sub-zero cookout.

These fatwood sticks are a great alternative to those packaged firestarters that are really chemical-soaked cakes of sawdust. I just ordered a 25 lb. box and it was not well sealed - only one strip of tape across the top and it was not stuck to one flap of the box. No way to know if any sticks fell out in transit. Shipping dept. needs to use more than one strip of tape on a 25 lb. box, and better tape at that!

No matter how old the wood stove is, like the old ones in the rental cabins, this Fat Wood will light the fire and your cabin will be comfy and cozy We have started cabin fires all season this year and I couldn't. be more pleased. Once you light the fire, it STAYS lit. I've used several types of fat wood, but, NOTHING comes close to this fat wood. I now bring extra fat wood when we are outside to give other campers for their fires. The say "thank you, and later on after their usual starter material are not doing the "job," They come over and say, do you have any extra fat wood and where can I get some. Thank you, Thank You, Thank You.

I could use no papers but I would need to use a lot more sticks to start a fire and I feel this works well for me with the combination of both. The fat wood works well.

These are fatter and burn longer than any I have found anywhere else. I can count on my fire starting easily and quickly when I use just 2 or 3. I also throw a couple on a struggling fire, and it gets it going again in no time.

While I don't have a fireplace my sister & daughter do. They look forward to the holidays knowing that they will get fatwood from me. Actually their husbands do because they are the ones starting the fires! Not exactly a surprise but I know they are getting what they want. Fairly priced and consistent quality year after year makes this a great value with fast delivery an added bonus. If you do a lot of fires you will love this product!

Fatwood
Comments about Product:
Love the fatwood, but I think not all of it is quite fresh, as it doesn't light quite as quickly as usual. The oils in some of what I had left from last winter had dried out and were difficult to ignite. Some of these in the new order react the same. But overall, I do love it.

Great Fire Starter
Comments about Product:
I have been using Fat Wood purchased from a Big Box home improvement store and the Plow and Hearth Fat Wood is superior. The Big Box home improvement fat wood is hard to light and have to use 3-4 pieces to get the fire going. With the Plow and Hearth fat wood I use one piece and get a quick and hot fire in a short period of time. I will also keep several pieces in my back pack for emergancy wilderness use.

Comments about Product:
Even a novice can start a fire with fatwood. Before fatwood I had a hard time getting a fire started. I use no newspaper, just a few pieces of fatwood which delights both my husband and chimney cleaner. You will not be disappointed with this product. No mess, no hassle, and it makes a great gift.

Flatwood
Comments about Product:
My daughter gave us a box of Flatwood for Christmas three years ago. I had no idea that something like this even existed. I was getting towards the end, called my daughter to find out where she purchased it. The sales person I spoke to was very pleasant. I can't imagine starting the fire in my woodstoves without these little pieces of wood. It used to be a hassle getting the fire started. I am NOT compensated for this comment. I feel that the only way a company will know if their products work, is consumer feed back. If this flatwood was not doing a good job, I certainly would not use it again. You also would have received a Phone call three years ago. Thank you

Indispensable for fireplaces
Comments about Product:
I struggled to start a fire in my fireplace with kindling, paper and pine cones - nothing worked as well as these. Once I found them I wouldn't be without them. I put down crumpled paper in the grate, then 3-4 of these, spread out, less would probably work almost as well, then put 2-3 logs on top. Light the paper and the fire will be established without any work on my part in about 5 minutes. If later I forget to add more wood and the fire goes out, I can stick one or two of these in the still hot coals and they'll rev up the fire again. No more leaning over the fire with bellows and poking it. Just make sure your fire is on a grid and there's air circulating; don't use too much paper; clean out the ashes every other day (P&H has great ash cans, too). These will even get wood burning that isn't so dry, too. I wish I had them when I used to grill in the summer - I bet they would start your charcoal nicely instead of lighter fluid. One more thing - I used about 35 - 50 lbs of these per year, and we have a fire every night from November to about March. Just to give an idea of how much you may need to order.

The fatwood is consistantly good. Fire is going in just a few minutes. Just received a new order. The shipping box was different from the last several. The new box is thinner and has larger handholds on each end. Anyone could reach in and remove the fatwood sticks or if the box is tipped, the wood will easily fall out. To ensure customers receive all that is ordered, the packaging needs to be reconsidered.

Comments about Product:
We stack two to three fatwoods on top of a sheet or two of balled up newspaper. Then we place firewood on top, being sure to not smother the fire. This allows fire to start very quickly. Never have any trouble when doing it this way. I love a fire but used to hate getting it started and this has taken that problem away. I now can make a fire daily when the weather gets cold. We use it in the outside pit, wood stove and wood insert....it worked great in the fireplace when we had that too. Love this product!

This stuff is the real deal
Comments about Product:
This fatwood is the real deal. Got some other fatwood from a company by the same name and it was nothing but left over trimmings from the construction of mobile homes - it was even still covered in sawdust. Don't be fooled - get yours from Plow & Hearth. It works fantastically well. I'll now only get fatwood from Plow & Hearth.

Comments about Product:
We use fatwood for starting our fireplace fires. How great to not have to walk outside in wet, freezing weather to gather/chop kindling. A few pieces of fatwood starts a beautiful fire with our wood. We purchased one of your brass holders to keep enough in for several fires and that adds to our fireplace decor. This is our second year of using fatwood and we love it; we just purchased 35 pounds for this coming winter.

We use this to start our fire place. I stack the fire place the night before and place about six pieces under the wood stack. I light it on my way though the living room and by the time I get my coffee the fire is going and ready to enjoy. We have been ordering the #35 box for years now. We order two boxes that last us the entire winter building a fire almost everyday.

Fatwood 35 lb. box
Comments about Product:
Fatwood is a great product. We have used it for years in our woodstove to get it started in the mornings. I always make sure we have a supply. I only gave it three stars because this shipment of 2-35 lb. boxes came opened. The shipping of the 35 lb. boxes leaves something to be desired. One flimsy strip of packing tape across the top. Our last order for last year's supply was the same. Opened and who knows how much fell out before UPS landed it on our doorstep. I suggest sticking with the smaller boxes, even if a little bit more expensive per pound. They have always come tightly sealed and in good shape.

We find Fatwood so dependable that we almost panic when we get down to having 1/4 left in the box! This is a good product--Plow & Hearth are prompt in shipping--so even if we procastinate we know we won't have to wait long for a delivery.

Comments about Product:
I love Fat Wood. I now start fires in my wood stove with 2 pieces of Fat Wood, ONLY. I place two logs close together and place the Fat Wood in the crotch where the logs meet. After lighting, I place a log across the first two and close the door. The logs always start fast and need no further attention. I have always used a handheld propane torch which makes the lighting easy. If I was just using a match I probably would use a piece of newspaper to start the fire. I sometimes get a whiff of the Fat Wood burning, but not often and I am able to shut the door so much sooner than with conventional kindling and newspaper that the odor has never been an issue.

I use these fatwood sticks when I am starting the fire. They can be used in place of kindling if you don't have any or they can be used under kindling. They smell very nice when you first start a fire. They burn for a while and light with a match. They most economical way to buy them is in the large box.

We are so happy we tried you. Our other supplier was out, and what a difference in you fatwood. It is twice as thick, the chemical smell not there, and it burns twice as long as a starter that helps get it warmed up and set the secondary and primary wood on fire, Don't buy anywhere else... you will never get the quality like this.

I usually struggled with getting my fire started when I got home. Looking for kindling was always a problem but not with this flat wood. I use 3 or 4 pieces and a little paper and have a roaring fire within minutes. I can even put whole logs on top of it and they burn almost immediately. I will never use any other kindling ever again!

Fantastic Fatwood
Comments about Product:
This is the second year in a row I have purchased fat wood as a gift for my husband's sister and family. They say that it works very quickly and is easy for her to use (before she wouldn't light the wood stove if her husband wasn't home). They actually told us they hoped Santa had some fatwood for them for Christmas when we sat our gifts by the tree. Thanks Plow and Hearth!!

Comments about Product:
We have a fireplace insert in our living room and this is our main source of heat for those LONG, COLD Michigan winters. I usually buy 2-3 boxes of the large box of fatwood for the entire season. It is so easy and clean to use but they do have an odor to them. We use 2-3 sticks to get the fire started, when you open the fireplace doors to add wood you can smell the resins in the wood. But still, these are the BEST firestarters ever and you don't have to try and find kindling, they fit perfectly in the dancing bears fatwood holder on the fireplace hearth. Love them!!!

Comments about Product:
we have a relatively small fireplace insert (20" wide, 12" deep), and burn primarily lodgepole pine during winter. i usually have to split the fatwood into thinner pieces, which extends my supply by about double. the big boxes lasted just over 2 seasons, so now we're just ordering either the 10 or 12 pound product.

Comments about Product:
My second box and not the last. Fatwood makes starting my woodstove and fireplace a joy. A 35lb box lasts a couple of long cold Fall & Winter seasons in Central NY state. So easy to use, no odd smells. A couple of sticks and your job is done. Sit back and enjoy your fires. We have even used it in our charcoal grill in the winter.

It had been years since we had a wood burning fireplace, but we built a cabin four years ago with one and thought we would try this product. All I can say is, I wish we'd had it 25-30 years ago as it would have saved me a lot of work cutting kindling (but back then it was fun, right).

not as good as last year's
Comments about Product:
I like that this is natural, and it does help light our fires, but most of the pieces seem too thick, and don't stay lit consistently. I use two for most fires, and often just one will stay lit (and does eventually ignite the fire). But we have to hold the lighter to it for much longer than usual, or re-light it. Thinner pieces would work better. It if weren't getting warmer, I would invest the time in splitting the pieces in half.

Try It Once, You'll Be Hooked !
Comments about Product:
Fatwood MORE than pays for itself by starting a HOT fire right away, no more "smoldering" logs, waiting for the real show ! It makes a nice, real wood fire just about as fast and easy to start as a gas fire! It REALLY works ! Because the logs start to burn right away, I find that there is less smoke in the room as well. The fires smell great while they are burning, but I have found that there isn't that "lingering" smell in the room the next morning. It takes less than you would think to stoke up a good burn, so a box lasts through a lot of fires! Try it once, you will put it on your winter survival list !!! Not only do I recommend it to friends, I have brought it as "host/hostess" gifts!

Hooked on Fatwood
Comments about Product:
I've been hooked on fatwood for several years but couldn't get my husband to use it. He would always crumple up a bunch of newpapers and split kindling to get fires going...and we heat primarily with wood. This year the chimney sweep told him he shouldn't use a lot of newspapers to start a fire because the ash sticks to the chimney. So, my husband decided to try the fatwood and is hooked. The only problem I have with it is that it is frequently hard to light with just a match or lighter, so I wrap one or two sticks in 1 page of newspaper and put that at the bottom of the wood stack. Works like a charm and no excess newpaper.

Best Thing EVER To Start A Fire!!!!
Comments about Product:
Love the stuff. Use it to start my wood stove fires, as well as fire place, or fire pit. Just a few sticks under the wood, it lights right up! Not sure if you could use for BBQ, but LOVE it for the other applications. No more balled up newspaper! Smells like pine! Very economical, I order a large box, and it lasts most of the winter season. We typically have fires 4-5 times a week, would not go without it.

Fantastic FatWood
Comments about Product:
I have a flu that is very fussy, and I need to get the fire in my wood stove started quickly with plenty of heat,and without much smoke. The fatwood is excellent for that. It stays lit, produces good consistent flame, and lights everything around it, so it burns fairly hot. In my fireplace, if the fire goes out, it only takes one stick to get the fire started again with fresh wood. For both the wood stove and fireplace, I couldn't ask for anything more reliable.

We use fatwood consistently to restart fires in our woodburning stove. Even if the fire has died down and the ashes are cooling, all we do stir the ashes a bit, add a couple pieces of fatwood, and poof - we have a fire again!

Fatwood
Comments about Product:
I have a gas log lighter and I never use it with the fatwood strips. They ignite quickly and always burn long enough to get the firewood started. If the fire burns down completely, I can reignite it with a couple of pieces of fatwood and some fresh firewood. You can't beat the price at Plow and Hearth either.

The Best stuff around
Comments about Product:
I have bought these firestarters every year since 2002. They are very easy to use and I can get my woodstove going with 2 sticks just about every time. I keep the stove cleaned out and make sure my flue is warmed up before trying to start a fire. These do smoke a lot if the flue isn't warmed up.I make sure that my wood is seasoned and DRY. I have had trouble in the past using the firestarters and unseasoned wood as the firestarters alone wouldn't get unseasoned wood going. Also call in your order instead of online-sometimes they have these on sale & it isn't advertised ! Love this product & hope they never stop selling it.

Every year we buy the biggest box of fatwood Plow and Hearth sells. Last year, we ran out and my husband was besides himself. This year, the fatwood was purchased even before the cords of firewood. It is so easy to use, my six year old delights in helping light the fire by putting the sticks in the fireplace and helping Dad light them. This way he can proclaim that he made the fire!

I have never been dissatisfied
Comments about Product:
I used to crumple up paper and split my kindling very small. It would still take quite a while to get the fire going and I had to constantly be fussing with it. With fat wood I just put in 4 pieces. A fire will start fine with less but I like to get a fire blazing within about 10 minuites.I make a little square with 2 on the bottom and 2 crossing on top of them. I then pick out a thin piece, light it with a lighter, and use it to start the ends of the two top pieces.I then put my kindling that's about 2 to 3 inches square in a crossing pattern on top of the fat wood. It used to take me a half hour or more to go from build to a blazing fire now takes less than 10 minuites. I've been using fat wood from Plow and Hearth for more years than I can remember. I've searched the web for better deals and have not found one.

Fatwood
Comments about Product:
It consistantly functions as it should. fairly easy to light and burns well, easily spreading to properly seasoned firewood. As expected, it makes a bit of soot while burning so it needs to be kept under the exhaust path out of the fireplace or woodburning stove. There is some odor but it is typically not an issue if the burning wood is kept close to the chimney opening. Overall, this is the best fatwood I have found, having tried all our local sources. It makes starting the evening fires very easy.

Start Fires like a Pro!
Comments about Product:
I use in my fireplace: crumpled newspaper below and on top of my grate, then a handful of fatwood; I'm sure I could use less but I like a roaring fire. Then I lay out my logs on top of the fatwood. I light the newspaper and usually don't have to worry about the fire after that - except to keep adding logs. The only reason I use the newspaper is because it's easier to light when bending over the screen with a little match. If I forget to add a log and the fire dies down - one piece of fatwood gets it roaring again. Well worth the price! If I still went camping I would take some with me - one stick will start your campfire! I may try outdoor grilling again this summer - I gave up because charcoal is so hard to light - I think this will make it easy. I love cooking over a wood fire but never liked the lighter fluid. My elderly mother used to love this because she could start the fire in the fireplace herself with a lot less fuss. Great product!

Comments about Product:
I've used Fatwood from Plow and Hearth for three years. I use it to start a large wood stove, a fire place and for camp fires. In all cases I crumple up old newspaper, place 3-7 pieces of fatwood on the paper, then place several large logs or split firewood directly on the fatwood and light the paper. It starts everytime with ease and no smell. It's perfect! No more kindling required!

Does the Trick
Comments about Product:
At first my husband didn't think we needed fatwood and wanted to continue using kindling. After trying it, he was enthusiastic above using it, as it lights quickly and starts the fire better. Like most wood, it will leave little pieces behind wherever it is placed; but, unlike other wood,there is no dirt left behind. If your fire gets low before you can add more wood, a stick of fatwood gets it roaring again very quickly. We stocked up on fatwood for the winter.

Start your fires quickly!
Comments about Product:
I made my first purchase of the 'fatwood' for my elderly parents to help them start fires in their wood-burning stove. The product works amazingly well and provided me the comfort of knowing that I was making things a bit easier for my folks. I have continued to buy this product, now for my own use, to start fires in bothe wood-burning stoves and fireplaces. It ignites quickly, and helps start even larger pieces of seasoned oak, with ease. I would recommend this product to anyone who enjoys a wood-burning fireplace or stove.

We have a fire going almost every day in the winter. We used to have to wait for my husband to build the fires. No more! Since we discovered fatwood, either our teenaged boys or I can easily have a fire going and a pot of coffee to greet him when he gets home. No more walking in the woods out back to gather kindling that is too wet, too dry... It ignites easily, and burns long enough to get the wood going. Perfect. Now, every winter begins with an order of fatwood.

We like the fatwood product for lighting our fires in our woodstove. They are pretty consistent in doing the job. The tote came in the box and smells like the fatwood, which smells more like diesel than resin. Not enough of a smell that we can't keep some in our living room, but can't use the tote for anything other than fatwood or kindling.

We use fatwood to rekindle a fire that has burned down to hot ashes and it works well for that. We've had difficulty with trying to start a fire from scrath using fatwood but it can be done if you use several (4 or 5) sticks. We use your cedar discs to start the fire and keep it going with fatwood if it burns down.

All fatwood is NOT the same. I've tried many other brands of fatwood, including pricier stuff from that Maine catalog..... This is the ONLY brand I will buy from now on. I've had 2 full seasons of effortless fires in our woodstove using this fatwood. No more smoking and sputtering until the fatwood lights--its really fast and can get the firewood lit in less than a minute. Forget about newspapers and kindling wood, this stuff will rock your box! 5 logs, 3 sticks of fatwood, strike one match and you're done. It doesn't get any easier or better than this :)

Comments about Product:
Fatwood is an nessessary component for anyone with a wood stove. Start a fire with 3 logs, 5 full sheets of newspaper (tightly balled up) and 4 pieces of fatwood, and you've got a good start for a warm evening.

Fatwood Fuels Fires Fast!
Comments about Product:
I always read the ads about fatwood, but didn't buy it for quite a while because I didn't like the idea of spending money for something I was going to send up in flames; however I also didn't like waiting interminably for our woodstove to catch using the traditional paper, cardboard, kindling, bigger wood, then logs, so I decided to give it a try. Now I am a convert to fatwood and have been telling all my acquaintances about this miracle! I wouldn't be without fatwood now.

Want to start a fire?
Comments about Product:
During the winter months here in Oregon, we use a wood stove for over 90% of our winter heating. Ease of getting the wood started is extremely important. A couple of sticks of fat wood gets the wood burning right away. Also, if we let the fire die down too low, adding a couple sticks of fat wood brings it right back to life.

OK, but not great.
Comments about Product:
I use this primarily to light my wood stove. While some sticks are rich in resin, others are quite dry. Fatwood is still, in my opinion, the best, and greenest, product with which to start a fire, but some of the sticks from this supplier should hardly be classifed as 'Fatwood.'

Forego other fire starting aids
Comments about Product:
I have a good place to "hide" the big box of fatwood we get every fire season, so it's not in the way or an ugly sight. The big box is more economical and I don't worry about running out, season long. Far less risky than liquid starters, and burns hot to get a good start for a fire that heats up quickly. I've not had much success with less that 4 sticks, and 6 is better, divided into two bunches, one on each side, to get my stove full of wood started. Start with a medium to large piece of dry wood in the back...: Lay the 6 pieces of fatwood on the grate in the bottom across the length of the fuel wood, with a small to medium-sized log in front, and fill in the middle with smaller dry sticks or tiny logs, with a good log on top. Open the damper and light the long wood stick-match and get both sides of the fatwood sticks ignited. One match, great fire every time, if the wood is dry. Third year using only fatwood as fire starting assist.

Can light any size piece with one match and that lights the others. I typically use 3-4 pieces to get a fire going from scratch as my wood is unfortunately never properly seasoned.

Fatwood for fast fires
Comments about Product:
One year I bought a box of fat wood for my brother in law as he was always into making fires in the fireplace and then in the wood stove and fire pit outside also. I didn't know how well received it was until he hinted the following year that he loved that fatwood. So now its a yearly gift that I know is always appreciated.

It really is fast and easy!
Comments about Product:
I buy this product every winter now!I bought my brother some for a birthday present and he loves it too. It is true that it takes only one or two sticks as long as you have fairly dry wood. If your wood isn't fully seasoned you might have to use a couple more. One box last me more than through the winter. I still had some left to start this year. The only thing that is kind of weird about it is it leaves hard clumps in the bottom of the wood stove where you use it. It makes it easier to clean out the wood stove though. Definately recommend it!

Maybe we received a bad batch?
Comments about Product:
We were very pleased with this product in past years, but the latest batch we received (Oct. 2010) is split larger than optimal (i.e. each piece is too thick). As a result it does not easily ignite which defeats the purpose. Lately my husband has been splitting the fatwood into thinner sticks so it will readily light. We can make our own kindling at home as we own forestland. The reason we had purchased fatwood was for a quick way to light a fire (which worked with last year's batch), but this year's fatwood is a hassle as it does not light without being split thinner. I just measured a piece at 3/4" square on the end . . . that's too thick!

Best Natural Fire Starter
Comments about Product:
This product does every thing they say it does. [...] It is reasonably priced. And it lit very quickly. The best part is that it came to my door and I did not have to go into the woods to get it. Fatwood is becoming increasing difficult to find in the woods considering that it comes from a recently cut down Pine tree where a stump was left behind which then gets pumped full of pitch by the remaining root system. With todays logging and land clearing methods, trees are usually removed in one piece. All fatwood puts off a heavy black smoke. So you will want to keep the doors closed on your fireplace if you can. I also purchased some of the "Super" fatwood. I performed a side by side comparison. The "Super" fatwood worked just fine. But in 3 separate side by side tests, it did no better than the regular fatwood. In fact, they performed exactly the same. They both lit with a lighter in about 10 seconds and burned very hot for a little over 8 minutes. They both burned out at almost the exact same time. Which is strange because the "Super" fatwood is about 3 inches longer. I would have to say it is not worth the extra $.

Quality fire starter
Comments about Product:
Plow & Hearth fatwood sticks are the best fire starting product we've found in three years! They're dependable every time; even damp wood ignites with an additional 1-3 sticks; there are no fumes (we actually enjoy the fragrant pine resin); they are easily stored fireside; they work equally well in the fireplace, for grilling,chimineas and firepits; and those receiving them as gifts have liked them as well. The only thing that would make this a better product would be consistency in the resin content. Last year's order seemed to have less resin and an extra stick was required. Not an issue. We're satisfied and loyal customers!

Our house does not have heat. We depend on a wood burning stove to heat the entire house.

Fatwood is used daily. I heat with a wood stove in my basement. I'm usually the first one home in the evening and first up in the morning. If the stove has gone out, a few pieces of fatwood and a long wooden match is all I need to get the house up to a nice warm temperature. I was using old newspapers and kindling wood. It would take forever. This is the easiest, cleanest, best way to light a wood stove, outdoor campfire, etc. I've been using this product for many years and will continue for years to come.

Fatwood is ideal kindling
Comments about Product:
My husband, a former career blacksmith, loved these for starting fires in our fireplace this winter. For 15 years, his business required that he start a fire, and he is an expert. He really appreciated having the fatwood for starting fires in our fireplace, and they are much more economical than any other commercial source for kindling I have found. We will definitely be ordering more fatwood this next winter!

Best fire starters ever, so easy to use!
Comments about Product:
Love using fatwood, so easy to maneuver among the logs in the fireplace and can move them around with gloved hands or tongs if they fall under grate. So quick on igniting, just a touch of the match and they are lit! Bought a case for my son who thinks they are great also!

I have bought P&H fatwood for years and I love it. I wouldn't want to go through a winter without it. We have a heatilator woodstove and I burned 7 cords last winter. The 35lb box lasted me all season. What a great product! No need for kindling and newspapers. Just light a couple sticks of fatwood and tuck them under your properly stacked & seasoned firewood. I get a blazin' fire everytime!

Comments about Product:
Used in South for years to start fires. Former Southern forester who has split many a longleaf stump to make my own. Much easier to buy in quantity, already split. Pine aroma. I use daily in New England to revive a fire from coals...one stick and a little oxygen does the trick. Two sticks will get fire going from dead cold.

Home heating
Comments about Product:
We heat our whole house from an air tight fireplace and fat wood is a necessity to keep the fire going for about 7 to 8 months. One 35 lb box is enough for entire season with some left over for summer camp fires. I feel this product is a bargain. When the fire goes out for whatever reason, fatwood can reignite the firebox in about five minutes and warm the house almost immediately. We depend on the efficiency of this product and have never been disappointed. Jan Travis

This is a winter staple in my house. A "must have." When I get home from work on a cold winter's day, it's such an easy and quick way to start a fire. Kindling from the yard never seems to last long enough, but this product is always there for me. Love it!

A product that really lights my fire!
Comments about Product:
I use the fatwood to start fires in a fireplace or to perk up a fire in a fireplace when the wood is slow-burning. To start a fire I mix in a few sticks of fatwood with some wadded up newspaper under the wood as a foolproof firestarter This fatwood is easy to burn and gives a nice intense flame burst as it ignites. It's easy to light--an excellent product.

WE SWITCHED TO THE FATWOOD AND WE DO NOT GET THE BUILD UP WHICH CAUSED THE FIRE WHICH CRACKED OUR CHIMNEY LINER AND WAS QUITE EXPENSIVE TO REPLACE.

Comments about Product:
We use a wood stove primarily for heat, and sometimes as a fireplace. With the fatwood, you can start a fire quickly and easily. We make a pile of fatwood on the bottom, kindling next, and then a couple of logs on top. We light it and that's it! Perfect for those chilly mornings when you want some heat fast!

The best way tolight a fire
Comments about Product:
I never knew this product would be so good. Although I do use more than recommened for my wood stove I now never use other kindling besides newspaper. I used this all the winter of 2009/10 and never had to relight the wood stove to have the fire. Great product. i will buy this every year for my wood stove. I even plan to use this on a week long camping tripd in the summer 2010. Easy to light a fire with this product.

This product does exactly what it is advertised to do. We never have enough kindling prepared to get through the winter for our wood burning fireplace.
