ALL FIRED UP

Outdoor Lifestyle Magazine - - Patio Fare - BY LARRY – “THE UN-IGNITER”

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!
