A Coors Lite can cut open half full of gas under a teepee of wood works the best.

Take a few brickets of charcol - the ones that are self lighting... drop 3 or 4 of them under a stack of wood and they will do the trick. No gas... no "run for your life", no "I wonder if that beer can thingie will work" stuff.

As we all know...every party has a pooper! My husband has been a truck driver for 30 years hauling gasoline. 8700+ gals at a time. The stuff WILL burn, no doubt. This week a real good friend of mine was burning leaves in his yard. Got just a little cup of gas and threw it on the fire. Well, it came back in his face and he is now experiencing 1st and 2nd degree burns and almost lost his eyesight. His nose, ear, forehead and scalp are all burned. It has been miserable to see him go thru this grueling experience. He has had to return to the Dr. twice for them to 'scrape' the skin so the scarring is minimal. They do that with OUT knocking you out. I think I would knock THEM out!!!
My advise is this...either use the new "candle fire starters" or the "starter bricks" (not the starter logs, if poked or punctured the stuff inside runs everywhere).
Not worth it to me...ruining a great weekend of playing and riding by ending up in a burn center.
Oh well, spoken like a true mom!

Huskyboy; what do you call east Texas? For a funny sight check out the faces of a group of campers who spent the previous night around a fire built totally of pine knots. I mean the root types not the Christmas ornament things. They will look like a family of coons!

George, I grew up in Orange and spent nearly every weekend in the Angelina and Sabine National Forests (Rayburn and Toledo Bend). My dear ol' dad grew up around Center so he knows all those woods very well. I agree, setting a pile of pine knots on fire would be like lighting a 55 gallon drum of race fuel!! LOL!! "hold my beer and watch this!"

You need to get ride of that rice burner and get your old icon back I aways thought the Husky part was due to the brand of jeans you wear

Husky jeans? I was hoping you forgot about that. I wish I was still on a Husqvarna but they have a lot of issues to work out. Maybe one day they will have a stronger dealer network. Give up my Yamaha? I love that bike! Maybe one day I will try an orange bike but until then it's Yamaha two stroke all the way. I just wish had two more gears so I can hang with you on the straights
