Has anyone seen the long burning firelogs around anywhere yet? We had to take al lour fire wood out of our yard due to rodent problems and like to have a "camp fire" now and again in the back yard.

Costco has them for less $$ than Superlake.

Our major heat source is a very old non-gas fired fireplace and a chunk of one of those logs is a good fire starter.

The best firestarter are the podes from the flame trees if you are lucky to have a tree or havr a friend who has one.

Thanks for the hint. Don't have any pods or know anyone who does, though.

We tried that. Not very cost efficient.

Gringal you can find ocote at the tianguis on wednesday, THey sell it in little packs of 5 or 6 sticks. It is sold on the right handside as you go down from the carretera but I cannot remember who sells it, I see it and I buy it but I cannot remember what else they sell..
In the meanwhile I can get you a bag of pods if you like...
