Even if it is raining. I know because it started raining right after we went out and lit one of these logs and it kept right on burning. It wasn’t a gully washer but it was getting pretty wet. The rain stopped after about 5 minutes though so I can’t say how long it would have kept burning.
I really like the idea behind these firelogs. They are made from 100% recycled waxed cardboard, and the manufacturer says that “Enviro–Log Firelogs burn cleaner, emitting 30 percent less greenhouse gases, 80 percent less carbon monoxide and 86 percent less creosote. They also generate 50 percent more heat per pound that firewood.”
We had a fireplace when I was young and we went through a whole lot of wood. I really like the idea of burning recycled cardboard instead of cutting down more trees. And if they cause less pollution that is even better.
The Firestarters are made from recycled wax and they smell really good. They do burn really easy and would make starting fires just about anywhere a whole lot easier.
We took a Firelog and a Firestarter out back and used them. I cooked some hot dogs while we were out there. We did that because it has been raining here a lot lately. Every time we planned to cook out it was raining, so we finally just did it anyway.
The Firelog started up easy, and it does get hot.
The logs come in 3 lb and 5 lb sizes. The bigger ones last longer. You can get the large logs in packs of4,6, or 9 and they usually cost $20 or less (depends on where you buy them), the smaller ones only come in packs of 6 or 9 and usually cost less than $16 (depending on where you buy them.)
The firestarters come in packs of 8 or 24 and usually cost $12 or less (depends on where to buy).
They are available at many local stores including Home Depot, Lowe’s, Rite Aid and Walmart. You can also buy them online at the Enviro-Log website, Lowes.com, and Amazon.com.
