Place 1 or 2 Zip firestarters among your logs or fuel.
Using limited draught, light the zip firestarters at the corners (Zip recommends long safety matches). When the firestarters are well lit, carefully add more fuel taking care not to extinguish the flames.
When the fire is well lit, increase the draft.
Pour 2lbs of charcoal into the barbecue. Place 1 wrapped Zip firestarter between pieces of charcoal (For larger fuel loads use one additional firestarter).
Ignite the edge of the wrapper. Once the charcoal has caught fire, more fuel may be added.
Allow the firestarters to burn out completely before cooking. After the flames have died down, and most of the charcoal is grey, with a red glow beneath (approx 25-30 minutes), spread the charcoal evenly and begin to cook.

These little Zip Firestarter cubes really work great! No more fooling with crunching newspapers up and arranging kindling to get a fire started in our wood stove. I just put the firewood in the stove leaving a little space between the two lower pieces, lay a firestarter cube between them, light the wrapper, and let'er rip! No kindling needed - the cube burns several minutes; long enough to get a good burn going - in two years of use have never had one fail to get a fire going.
Purchase Zip Premium All Purpose Fireplace Starters. Just light with a match and you will have the nicest fire in your fireplace. No mess, no fuss and beautiful fire. I shopped around for the best price and this was it/
