Fatwood, or "Fat lightered wood" as they call it in the south is great! The amount of kindling you will NOT use is the main reason I buy it. A couple pieces of dry wood the size of your wrist, two sticks of fatwood on top, a match, and away you go. The Fatwood is full of resin thats not sticky, smells like lamp oil while it burns, and soaks the wood below it in flaming oil as it burns. MMMMMMM I cant wait for it to get cold!

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.

Comments about Plowhearth Fatwood:
We use fatwood to light our Fire Pit. Does the job every time. I like to use my hunting knife to split it down even smaller. You don't need as big of pieces to get a fire going. A box lasts a long time.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Greatest fire starters ever!
By Jim the Guide
from Bend, OR
Ease of use for the ladies to start fires
The fat wood is great, we cut it in half and then spilt those 2 or 3 times. Goes a long way. The only down side, our box was not taped well and fat wood was coming out of the box, when we got it--we lost better then a pound.
Fatwood-Good Product but Bad Delivery
from Riverside, CA
Product is used in firepit outside by pool. Gets fire going in a small amount of time. A little smoky and smelly at times.
love this product
By peace for you
I love this product and order it over and over. It lights quickly and burns long enough to start a nice fire. Sure beats newspaper
Made great "guy" gift. Haven't used yet

Rec'd them when promised.

We bought these for the woodstove at our Vermont cabin. They made this cold winter much nicer! Anytime we needed to restart the fire, a couple of pieces of fatwood would get the job done quickly and efficiently. A 25-lb box lasted us all winter; I've ordered another box for next year already this spring.
Fatwood is a Staple Here
By Happy Farmer
from Lock, Ohio
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.

If you have to buy it, this is a great place.
I buy this every year!
from Poughkeepsie NY
Works every time!
i have purchased before
from santa fe, nm
i have ordered your fatwood before, and my pleasure with the product is why i ordered again. however, your packaging needs revising. i lost about 2-3 #'s of the fatwood, falling out of the hand hole on the side of the box, before i recieved it. not pleased... last time i ordered the box was completely sealed, with no loss of product.
Fast arrival, but not so great packing
from Nashville, TN
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!
Should've waited for a shipping discount
Good product. I just have bad timing. I bought it before I really needed it, as we still had plenty. Had I waited another week or two, there would have been reduced shipping.
FatWood - 35lb box
I use fatwood every morning to start a fire in our wood stove. It only takes two or three pieces combined with some kindling and smaller pieces of firewood to get a roaring fire in the stove. This beats everything else I have tried.
Just what I needed!
from Sodus Bay NY
The fatwood is great kindling for pyro-challenged ME!! I can now keep the wood stove going and save on oil.
from Farmington, N.M.
Would give it more stars if possible. Just returned from a camping trip to the Canyonlands, Utah. 3 sticks, a little paper and a single match and I had a roaring fire in no time at all. This stuff is awesome!!

The Best of the BEST Fat Wood!
from Squaw Valley, CA
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.
Very reliable and easy to use. Use it every day to get the fire going in our wood stove.
from Encinitas, Ca
Amazingly helpful- ignites immediately!
By Fancy girl
We have used this product for the last 3 years. It lights fast and gets our fires started without having to use kindling. Just put in about 3 in between the logs and they get the wood burning evenly. We just ordered our second box of fat wood.

from Chadds Ford PA
In our 300 year old inn, the fireplaces are a big draw in Fall & Winter. For over 10 years we've enjoyed the reliable and efficient way we can start fires with your fatwood. Thank you.
excellent fire starters
from elliot, il
My husband loves these. Better than fussing to get the fire started!
Works as advertised
I bought these to use in my wood stove which I have to relight each day. I used to use approximately 10 sheets of news paper before I tried this product and now I just use about 4 sheets with just 3 or 4 sticks of fat wood. 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.
from Nanticoke, PA
Great product, been using it for years!
Great product, fast delivery
from Fayetteville, NY
I use these in my wood burning insert stove. One stick to ignite the first kindling and larger sticks. Then the logs and the heat is on for the evening.
Fantastic fire starter
I always use on top of grate 10 sticks and place few small logs on top of the. Sticks in a criss cross fashion.Put a rolled up , crunched up newspaper directly under the graGrate and pen flue.Light up a hand rolled paper under flue to start the draft and them light part under the flue and watch the fire start
