As already stated, preheating wood is a good thing to do, as is leaving the firebox door a little open until the split is nice 'n on fire. Opening the firebox door is also great for temp control - opening it will lower your temps while keeping things burning nice & clean. A nice coal bed is a good thing to have as well. Smaller splits will burn better esp. in smaller fireboxes.

Great. Now I want to leave work and go home and play with fire.
