The Way We Light a Fire

Step one: place 4 bits of kindling down, horizontally to each other with a gap of about an inch between each, like four spread out fingers. On top of this place another 4 with the same spacing, but this time at a right angle to the ones below, rather like the Jenga game. Repeat from step 1, place our firelighter on top of the stack, then light your firelighter. Close the door, but not completely and make sure the air vent is fully open. When the kindling is burning, place your logs upright at either side in a pyramid shape and close the door fully. When burning fully, close down the air vent to low.

This stacking method can be used in Pizza ovens too; place the stack back from the oven opening, but not too far in as there will be less oxygen towards the back of the oven. When the stack is ablaze, use an implement to push the stack further in and add your logs.
