I thought it would be a good idea to make an ible on this, so here it is. I was about to start the stove this morning, when I got the idea to make an instructable on it. This instructable will show you how to build and light a fire in your stove. Happy firelighting!
Step 1: Step one: Make sure your stove is cleaned out.
Not much to say here, other than read the title again.
Step 2: Step two: Set up the wood
This step is important to get right, so get it right! This is where you set up the wood to get the fire started. First, you need wood, so I went outside and got some. Then you have to get kindling, which is just thinly split fuelwood (the big logs) or old split lumber, which I am using.
At this step, let me make a big recemendation to you: Oak is one of the best firewoods you can use. It burns long, hot and clean(not much smoke). We have a lot of oak trees in our yard, too many, in fact, so my dad is always cutting down oaks, and 2-5 trees can last a whole winter. Do not use pine unless you have to, as it is just about the opposite of everything I just said about oak.
I will give you instructions throught image notes, as those are much easier to follow.
