Our extensive range of fire-setting essentials, including firepits, firewood, Samba Firelighters, gas lighters, and matches, is designed to help you become a fire-setting pro. So, grab your essentials and let's ignite some warmth and ambiance in your home.

First, let's address the age-old question

What's the best method for setting a fire? Should you go for the classic teepee method or opt for the cross-hatch approach? The answer depends on your preference and the type of fire you're aiming for. The teepee method, where you arrange your kindling and firewood in a pyramid shape, is great for quick and efficient fires and is perfect for warming up chilly evenings. On the other hand, the cross-hatch method, with crisscrossed layers of firewood and kindling, creates a longer-lasting, more sustained burn, ideal for those all-night gatherings under the stars.

Gather your materials

Once you've chosen your method, it's time to gather your materials. Start with a solid base of firewood, ensuring proper airflow to keep the flames alive. Then, add your kindling—smaller pieces of wood or twigs—to help ignite the larger logs. Try our Samba Firelighters, designed to get your fire roaring in no time for an extra boost. Place one or two firelighters underneath your kindling and watch as they work their magic.

Now, it's time to spark some life into your fire. Whether you prefer the traditional charm of matches or the convenience of a gas lighter, Budget Stockfeeds and Outdoor has you covered. Whatever method you choose, remember to prioritize safety and always exercise caution. Responsible fire-setting is key to enjoying the warmth and ambiance of a crackling fire.

As your fire begins to dance and flicker, take a moment to bask in its warmth and glow. Whether you're gathered around with loved ones sharing stories or simply enjoying a quiet moment of solitude, there's something truly magical about the mesmerizing dance of flames.
