    I make these for my coal stove.

    Only difference is I put wood pellets in the center and stuff the lint in from both sides to hold them in place.

    Coal is a lot harder to get going as far as lighting and burning and the wood pellets lengthen the burn time.

    The toilet paper roll tube is the perfect size to fit on or in my grate area of the stove.

    Can take this a step further by adding sawdust and/or dip either end of the cardboard roll in some melted wax after it's stuffed (ie. paraffin, old crayons).
