Campfires can be lit anywhere, but an effective campfire needs good quality dry firewood as opposed to damp sticks you found in a bank halfway through the woods.
- Set up your campfire on level ground and ensure the area is clear of any plants, loose leaves, grass or camping equipment that could catch alight. Create a safe, non-flammable bed for the fuel by digging a natural firepit into the ground, and then add a circle of stones around it to prevent any flames from spreading.
- Choose firewood that is guaranteed to light and easy to take with you. Birch will light the easiest and produce a bright flame to act as a light source as the night draws in – you can purchase Ecoblaze kiln-dried logs in 20 litre boxes from our express page.
- Start by placing some tinder in the pit – you can use dry leaves, but we recommend taking firelighters with you to ensure a cleaner burn.
- Arrange kindling into the desired shape over the top so that the flames reach it. Once the fire is burning nicely, gradually add firewood and keep the fire steady.
Our fire building guide has five different methods you should try when arranging your wood pile.
Firepits are basically a self-contained version of a campfire which is lifted off the ground. This allows for easier clean up and reduces the risk of moisture reaching the firewood. You must still make sure to place your firepit on a level, non-flammable surface and away from garden plants in case of floating embers.
- Before using your firepit, ensure that the interior is clean and dry, so that firewood can burn effectively. Regularly remove ashes after each use and wash surfaces with soap and water.
- You must use a new piece of firewood and dispose of burned wood or ashes in order to achieve a clean burn.
- Use firelighters and kindling first to generate a large enough flame, so that when the firewood is added it won’t smoulder and produce excessive smoke. The natural materials will also make it safe for cooking food directly above the firepit.
- Choose a firewood that burns for longer, such as Oak, so that you can refuel the fire less often. This will reduce your ash and waste pile at the end of the evening.
- Don’t forget to protect your firepit with when it’s not in use – but make sure it’s completely cooled down and cleaned out first.
Chimineas are a self-contained, freestanding appliance with an opening for fire lighting and a rounded body. The smoke is redirected through the small chimney attached to it. They can be made of clay, steel or cast iron, although clay is the traditional material. Where possible, keep your chiminea off the grass – especially dried grass – as fuel or embers could fall from the opening and cause a fire to spread.
- Much like the firepit, you must clear out the ashes and burned debris every time. Ashes can cause damage to surfaces as they’re corrosive. Similarly, clean your chiminea after each use.
- Clay is porous and fragile. Moisture can seep into clay, so remember to apply a protective coating to the clay exterior every few weeks.
- Build the temperature in your clay chiminea by adding amounts of fuel to the fire gradually. Start with a small amount of kindling before adding larger logs.
- Choose a high-performing wood such as Ash, so that you have the desired steady flame to fit your aesthetic while also being able to produce heat without overloading the chiminea.
Swedish candles are a unique form of campfire that was traditionally used in Europe in the 17th century during the 30 years' war. Also known as Swedish torches and Swedish logs, they are a whole log that is split ¾ of the way down the length into sections and propped upright (onto their flat surface) to be used for cooking on or as heat and light in forests. They have a controlled burn because the flame is contained inside the log, burning outwards from the inside.
Our Swedish candles are made of the highest quality, kiln dried Birch firewood and we make sure the moisture content is below 20% for the cleanest burn.
How to light one:
The logs come with a firelighter wedged between the split sections. Simply light the Swedish Torch from the centre and let the fire burn steadily before using it as a cooking platform. You can place an additional firelighter deep inside the log for extra assistance with the burning process to ensure the flames are strong enough that the flame begins to spread.
Use this on a non-flammable surface such as gravel, and make sure to clear the area of leaves before lighting the Swedish Candle.
