Introduction: Easy Way to Ignite Fire to Vegetable Coal (without Blowing). Una Forma Facil De Encender Fuego Al Carbon Vegetal (sin Soplar)

sorry my poor english!

this is the way i ignite fire to vegetable coal. once you ignite the news paper, all you have to do is wait the coal turns on to embers.
materials: vegetable coal, 5 o 6 sheets of a news paper and lighter or matches.

de esta forma enciendo fuego al carbon vegetal, sin necesidad de soplar. una vez que el papel de periodico es encendido, solo tienes que esperar que el carbon se haga brasas.
materiales: carbon vegetal, 5 o 6 hojas de papel de periodico y encendedor o fosforos.

Step 1: Rolling the News Paper Sheets / Enrollando Las Hojas De Periodico

take a news paper sheet and roll up, then make a ring. repeat this with all the sheets.
toma una hoja de periodico y enrollala, luego luego haz un anillo. repite esto con todas las hojas.

Step 2: Preparing the Coal / Preparando El Carbon

put the rings of paper one on other one, then put the coal arround and order like a "volcano".
coloca los anillos de papel uno sobre otro, luego coloca el carbon alrededor y ordenalo como un "volcan".

Step 3: Ignition / Encendido

take a chunk of paper, light it and put in to the botom of the ring paper pile. no need to blow. thats all.
toma un trozo de papel, enciendelo y colocalo en el fondo de la pila de anillos de papel. no necesias soplar. eso es todo.

    in spanish we use the word "carbon" to refer mineral coal, vegetable coal (charcoal) or the chemical element carbon (C).

    cool. Thanks man.

    i use also a spoon of salt ( yeah, keeps the fire going on for longer) between the newspaper, try it ... yo tambien uso una cucharada de sal ( si, mantiene el fuego mas tiempo) en medio del periodico , intentalo ... nice thing the span section.

    i`ll use salt next time. usaré sal la próxima vez.

    I'm one of those people who know how to light a fire. While this may help a person, either you know your fire or you don't. People who can do this already can, people who can't still won't be able to because it's a skill, not a method. To put it differently, you're have not shared details of fire-starting, possibly because (as a skilled fire-starter) you take them as common knowledge(?) The stack looks good, I will consider using it. L

    Nicely done (and near idea.) This is the way multi-language projects SHOULD be, IMO. Even if all the languages weren't perfect, they went with the pictures well enough to make the whole thing very understandable.

    Looks like a reverse chimney charcoal lighter by putting the chimney in the middle of the charcoal, rather than putting the charcoal in the chimney. I like my Weber chimney that lights the charcoal in less than 10 minutes with one (count them, one!) sheet of newspaper every time. For years I had a problem with having to add paper again because it didn't take the first time. The solution (that would also work well with this technique) was to squirt the newspaper with just a little bit of vegetable oil. This causes the paper to wick and burn much hotter. Do not put kerosene on your coal, unless you like your steak tasting like automobile exhaust!

    don't use (mineral) coal to cook on at all, or your food will taste like a burning tire.

    Who was talking about using mineral coal to cook on at all?

    i didn`t know the weber chimney. thanks for your comment.

    "vegetable coal" is 'charcoal,' but the wood variety, not briquet. i had heard of using one ring of paper to light a blacksmith's coal forge, but several like this would work better. then again, soaking some charcoal in kerosene works to start coal, too : )
