Starting a fire A fire needs heat, fuel and oxygen. The fuel in a wood fire are the gases which are created when the wood is heated to a high temperature. Not the wood itself ! A big piece of wood needs more heat to gasify than a small piece of wood. Beech needs more heat to gasify than spruce.Therefore, spruce kindling should always be used to start a fire. In order to keep the chimney as clean as possible, use a good quality starter. News-paper www.red-anvil.net 7 leaves a lot of ashes. Burning Paper, cardboard, rubbish or treated wood is generally forbidden. The photos show the Pagoda fire, which is optimal for starting a fire. First two layers of beechwood serve as a base. In the midd-le of these a starter is placed. Then two layers of spruce kindling finish the fire. The airy construction let flames draw oxygen easily. A new fire should always be started with enough wood. The stove and the chimney must reach operating temperature to enable a clean combustion. For increased oxygen supply, leave the stove door just open until white spots appear on the firewood. When small blue flames are visible in the embers, it's time to add fresh wood. Open the door slowly to allow a pressure equalisation, avoiding that ashes be sucked out of the stove. Kindling can be split of course with an axe or smart and civilized with the „Splitter“. As opposed to the axe, the splitting of kindling of the required size is safe and quiet. One starter is not like all other starters! The „Kubik“ contains wood shavings of soft and hard woods, bound by recycled candle wax. Hence the „Kubik“ burns in 3 -phases: First the candlewax catches fire, the softwood content then starts. Finally the hardwood burns long and hot. The high wood contents contains a lot of ener-gy!
