Default sea salt sparks it up

Hey guys, just learned a new trick for sparking up a low fire. a little bit of sea salt does the trick, just toss it over your coals or wood, it starts to snap crackle and pop in a few seconds and restors the fire. Just thought I'd pass that along, (although some of you might know this trick allready)

What if my doctor told me I can only cook over low sodium fires, though?

I'll try that, bruddah - thanks!
