Thanks for the info and reviews. We were just talking about getting this product =)
There are 2.5 pounds in the #10 can and 13 pounds in the bucket.
I didn't see the answer to How much is in a 5 gal bucket and how much is in the can. I would like to compare price. thanks for an answer
The question is not about the smoke, it's about the by-products of the fire. Put another way, is it safe to burn this in an enclosed space? The short answer, I believe, is that nothing is safe to burn in an enclosed space.
Now my question is about the sizes of these two containers. How much does the firestarter in a 5-gal bucket weigh, and how much in a #10 can?
I have used this product for the past couple of years and it is awesome! It will burn right on top of snow – I used it during a scouting event called Klondike and everyone else had wet wood and could not get a fire started – I simply put a little Fired up down and lit it. It burnt long enough to dry out the wet wood and in a few minutes later I had a roaring fire.
You do get a little bit of smoke from the wood pellets once they get going but that's it. Burns very very clean.
Totally safe. It does not have lighter fluid in it. There are no harmful chemicals in it at all. You can even store it next to food.
I've actually tested it and cooked rice with it using a home made #10 can stove, stir fry, and ground beef – amazing
Fired Up is a combination of wood pellets, wax and lighter fluid. While some smoke may be expected, it is considerably less than dry firewood produces.
I assume it generates some kind of fumes? Does it generate smoke or is it like charcoal….no smoke?
I have seen a similar product called instafire. It looks to be a pretty cool item. I am going to have to get me some to try out.
