ALL FIRED UP
WE ARE CANADIAN, EH?! And a little bit of snow or cold can’t scare us. Hell, that’s bonfire weather right there people! So bundle up, fill up your wine skin, crank up the tunes, bust out the gasoline… or whatever you start your bonfires with, and git’er done. Cuz there is nothing more Canadian than a good old winter roast.
If you’re like me, the art of starting a great, roaring fire is something that only boy scouts and pyromaniacs are skilled at and that skill escapes me.
Here are a few tried and true fire styles for your burning pleasure. Make sure you have some dry wood and kindling (small, dry pieces of wood and paper) – which I am told is a must when trying to ignite a flame. I usually use whatever flammable liquid is available at the time… citronella oil, bbq fluid… but don’t do as I do, do as I say. Use the kindling and a match! No accelerants!
