An upside-down fire works by preventing the fire that you started with your tinder and kindling from passing through colder logs, which will lead to smoke. Hardwoods are also less resinous than softwoods and are therefore less likely to result in a build up of tar deposits in your flue, reducing its efficiency or increasing the risk of a flue fire. If you are finding that your fire is going out quickly and your logs are burning fast then decrease the oxygen getting into the fire by closing the air vents. A superior type of heat log that is a cost effective fuel choice for your wood burner or multi-fuel stove. All of our logs are sourced from sustainable, British woodland within 50 miles of our processing centre to minimise road miles.

One kiln dried log can produce the same amount of energy as around three freshly cut logs because there's so much water to evaporate in the greenwood.

For example, if you want a fire that is quickly alight and has a good heat output, you could select a briquette which would offer you that. Softwood kindling is therefore best used to get a fire started, the resinous and fibrous nature of softwood helping it to burn from cold. e. long burn Nestro wood briquettes) burn for longer versus competitor products with a delayed peak in heat production and a longer after-peak burn, producing a steadily durable flow of heat. The environmental impact of our products is important to us, so we are constantly working with our suppliers to improve the sustainability of their packaging by using cardboard in place of plastic wherever possible.Incidentally, using a tarp, especially a reflective tarp inside your lean-to wall will reflect a lot of the fire’s infrared heat back onto you, as well as provide wind and water protection.

They are a handy size so they’re excellent on a smaller stove or open fire, but they’re still chunky enough to give a really good burn time.

However, if you are in a smoke controlled area and have a DEFRA approved appliance, then you can burn high quality briquettes. What works in my stove may not work in your stove, so proceed with care and be sure not to overload your fire.

Burns slowly with a good heat output and produces a pleasant smell with little sparking or spitting. They’re easy to light, small enough to fit any stove, but hot enough to make the space cosy very quickly. Before we even get into how you should make your fire - different logs will have better longevity than others.
