How to Make Campfire Starter


  • 1Recycle a cardboard egg carton and fill it with "match light" charcoal. Fill each egg cup with one brickette.
    Make sure they are match light charcoal and the carton is cardboard, NOT the styrofoam kind.
  • 2Close up the carton and it's perfect to take with you to the campground.
    Add to your campfire site, barbecue grill or your fire pit. This is the fire pit we keep in our back yard for s'more parties!! (we don't keep it next to those trees...I just had to move it in the shade for the picture)
    The cardboard carton is easy to light with a match and then the charcoal starts too!!

    Storage, transporting and ease of starting...Perfect!!
  • 3Make up several cartons and keep them on hand to take with you camping or just keep in a safe place for those last minute fires you have in the backyard for roasting hot dogs or marshmallows!
