Wood Briquettes - The Perfect Solution for an Easy Campfire

Compressed sawdust blocks burning in a fire pit.

Have you ever planned to host a party on a beautiful, summer evening and had trouble getting your fire started? It can be extremely frustrating to try to start a fire with wet firewood! BIO BLOCK Firewood is dry, so it is easy to start with a BIO BLOCK Fire Starter.

People often think of burning wood briquettes, in the winter, in their wood stoves but don't always think about burning them in the summer! The convenience of sawdust blocks is not limited to one season. This time of year, I enjoy burning BIO BLOCKS in a fire pit on my patio. We will often enjoy a fire, then cook in a Dutch Oven when the fire burns down to hot coals. After we are done cooking, we'll add a few more BIO BLOCKS again to increase the flame.

If you're an avid camper, you're most likely aware of the restrictions many state parks and campgrounds have on bringing your own firewood. Unfortunately, many areas have lost trees due to the infestation of invasive insects such as the Emerald Ash Borer, which is the reason for more firewood rules. I have spoken with RV owners who tell me they keep packs of BIO BLOCKS in their camper so they are always prepared. Campfires are a huge part of the camping experience, so you need accessible, affordable firewood!

An extra bonus of having a is always a good way to keep insects away!

If you have tree limbs or other wood to burn, you can always lay that on top of an established BIO BLOCK Fire. You'll find the benfits of using wood briquettes in a campfire, fire pit, outdoor fireplace or chiminea is that it will be easier to start a fire and the fire will last longer. This gives you more time to sit back and visit with your friends.
