But I live in a townhouse with no yard to call my own and a small garage. And worse, no pickup. I don't want propane tanks around. Plus, a chimney of lump might be 50 cents. Not really wasting too much, just a preferred way of starting.
^^^ I agree. Iíve always found it very easy to use a chimney of lump, or even briquettes, to start my woodburner. I find it a- helps begin to warm the heatsink formed by all that metal, b- lays down an initial coal bed before any wood is fully burned, and c- works great for lighting the splits very evenly.

Just my pov. . . .
